Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA) has been awarded a new contract to deliver fully managed communications to a worker camp in Mozambique that provides housing for employees of a top ten, global, oil and gas major operator.
The camp will have 30 rooms for housing employees working in the region on nearby offshore LNG drilling and production assets, set to begin operations over the next four years. Speedcast's solution will leverage C-band VSAT to provide reliable internet communications across the camp, allowing those on base to communicate with colleagues, friends and family in addition to maintaining critical operational and emergency communications connectivity.
Keith Johnson, Speedcast's EVP of Energy, said Mozambique is a booming market for energy exploration and production and the company has the global reach and regulatory capabilities to be one of the first providers of reliable communications in the region for the firm's top customers. This new project in Mozambique instills confidence that a strong return in the industry is upon us as the company's Energy customers begin to build upon their operations in new locations and Speedcast has the opportunity to support all of the customers as they activate new sites and revitalize previously active assets in remote locations onshore and offshore.
