NSSLGlobal Floats Vertom-Bojen's Boats with Contract for ‘VSAT Powerhouse’ Status

It's a deal and so a vast Vertom-Bojen fleet of mini bulkers, general cargo vessels and multi-purpose vessels, based in Nermoor, Germany will rely on NSSLGlobal's VSAT IP@SEA. 

Vertom, located in Rhoon near Rotterdam, provides in-house chartering for Vertom-Bojen with more than 40 years’ experience and 80 vessels in chartering.

In 2016, Vertom-Bojen rolled-out NSSLGlobal’s FleetBroadband Airtime plans across its fleet that was a positive experience the company decided to work again with NSSLGlobal to install new VSAT IP@SEA systems on vessels of its worldwide fleet, under a multi-year contract.

NSSLGlobal’s VSAT IP@SEA service is a maritime broadband VSAT (DVBS2-RCS2) service for commercial vessels, which combines extensive Ku- and C-Band coverage with fast speeds. Being an independent VSAT operator ensures that NSSLGlobal can offer flexible and tailored solutions to its customers. The service comprises five global teleports supporting 20 satellite beams and three Network Operation Centres to achieve ‘always-on' connectivity.

Warner Wanders, Managing Director, and Frank Schoone, Marine Superintendeant, at Vertom-Bojen commented that NSSLGlobal truly understands their communication needs and has provided them with excellent support and service over the years. This, along with its competitive pricing and VSAT Upgrade Campaign, justified their contract extension with NSSLGlobal over its competitors in-region.

Henrik Christensen, CEO, NSSLGlobal Conteinental Europe added that they work in an increasingly competitive market. Companies such as Vertom-Bojen want to know that they will not only get excellent and attentive service, but also receive a cost-competitive deal with no surprises lurking in the contract details. They’re looking forward to further enhancing their services and presence in the region and this contract win is testament to NSSLGlobal’s continued growth and momentum in Europe.
