Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA) has been awarded a new master service agreement and multi-year contract to deliver fully-managed communications onboard assets for Sapura Energy Berhad (Sapura Energy), a global integrated oil and gas services and solutions provider headquartered in Malaysia.

The scope of the contract is to provide secure satellite communications systems for the customer's fleet of engineering and construction vessels supporting its operations in over 20 countries.  Taking advantage of Speedcast's global scale that combines extensive satellite coverage with terrestrial networks and local engineering resources, Speedcast will provide a combination of C- and Ku-band, Fleet Broadband and 4G/LTE connectivity to the customer's fleet of vessels located in remote and harsh environments.

Executive Comment

Keith Johnson, Speedcast's EVP of Energy, said the company has created a partnership with Sapura Energy to support their assets all around the world. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate Speedcast's technology-agnostic approach, using multiple technologies to deliver the best communications solution for each individual asset. The company designs systems that are the best fit for secure and reliable communications based on factors such as geographic location, weather, bandwidth availability, and look angle; and can use multiple options for added redundancy and reliability.
