PACC Ship Managers extends VSAT deal to add new ships

Singapore based PACC Ship Managers (PaccShip) is to extend its use of VSAT communications to another five vessels following an extension and expansion of its existing deal with Satcom Global.

Satcom Global has supplied Ku-band connectivity to more than 50 PaccShip managed vessels since 2017, with the companies’ contract now extended for a further three years. The five extra vessels are expected to be added later in 2020.

“We are very happy to continue our business partnership with Satcom Global, and renew our contract for Aura VSAT,” said Kok Chai Choo, Technical Department Manager for PaccShip.

“The team understands our vessels’ operational requirements and continues to deliver a reliable communications connectivity that consistently meets our needs for both performance and value, supporting our commitment to maritime business excellence and crew wellbeing.”

PaccShip is the in-house ship management arm of the PCL Group, managing both PCL owned vessels and those of third parties. The managed fleet comprises dry bulk carriers, multi-purpose vessels, product/ chemical tankers and gas carriers.
