Marine services company Tile Marine has become a KVH Watch Solution Partner, adding shipboard IoT connectivity to support its maritime services and expand its remote monitoring and maintenance capabilities for customers in India and the Middle East.
Tile Marine’s services cover a range of electrical, electronic, and mechanical work for shipowners and shipyards including installation, maintenance, and repair of communications equipment, integrated bridge systems.
“With KVH Watch connectivity, we will be able to extend our services and add remote monitoring, condition-based monitoring, and assistance for a repair even if there is an incident in the middle of the ocean,” said Pravin Raghavan, Managing Director of Tile Marine.
“Many vessels are looking for this level of service but what has been missing in our opinion was the reliable backbone of connectivity to transfer data from the ship to shore. Our ability to offer these services will be a great comfort to our customers.”
