Oceangold Tankers to roll out Starlink on 13 vessels

Athens-headquartered Oceangold Tankers, operator of a global fleet of 13 tankers, has begun the deployment of the Starlink connectivity system across all of its vessels, in collaboration with satcom service provider Navarino.

The company has chosen Starlink’s 1 TB plan, which will be utilised to improve both crew well-being and operational efficiency.

On the business side, Oceangold will leverage the Starlink connection to introduce telemetry systems for monitoring machinery and equipment within the fleet, according to John Angelis, the company’s CTO Manager. The link will also support direct connections to the company’s existing ERP system and allow for expanded data synchronisation capabilities. 

The Starlink connection will be used as a complement to Oceangold’s existing VSAT networks, which include a mix of Fleet Xpress and Ku-band services with a 4 MB MIR (maximum information rate) plan. 

“I am delighted that our long-standing partner Oceangold has chosen Navarino to deliver the Starlink service to its fleet,” said Kyriakos Striboulis, Navarino Account Manager for Oceangold.

“We look forward to helping them bring this new, high speed connectivity service to their vessels and all the advantages that this low latency platform can offer both for crew welfare but also to enhance and upgrade their business operations.”
