Hyundai Global Service (HGS), a subsidiary of shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), has introduced a new satcom package in conjunction with Intellian, which integrates satellite communications into HHI’s existing ‘smart ship’ system implemented on newbuilds constructed at the yard.
This is the first joint project following the companies’ signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in July, combining HHI’s ‘Integrated Smart Ship (ISS)’ digital ecosystem and data analysis platform with Intellian’s satellite antenna systems.
The new package will provide HGS with a standardised smart ship package to supply to newly-built HHI ships, making internet connectivity available right from the sea trial. HGS will provide ongoing customer support for the smart ship system post-delivery.
“This new product launch has great implications for us as a disruptive venture which could bring about big changes to the smart ship paradigm,” said Kwang Heon An, CEO of Hyundai Global Service.
“Through close partnership with Intellian, we will strengthen our competitiveness to offer customer value and take a step forward as a global leader in the market.”
