A triple installation for the next generation Petronas Floating Liquid Natural Gas (PFLNG) vessel emphasises increased demand for Intellian’s 2.4-metre product line in the offshore energy and enterprise market segments.
Built at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea, PFLNG Satu is a game-changer in the global LNG business. PFLNG technology dramatically improves asset mobility, paving the way for efficiency in monetising gas resources from remote, marginal and stranded fields.
To ensure redundant, seamless connectivity on-board, Petronas selected Intellian for its outstanding performance, intuitive user experience and superior remote Management & Control capability. Two v240 C-band VSAT systems managed by a Dual VSAT Mediator will provide uninterrupted operation of enterprise data applications and crew welfare solutions. Live TV entertainment will also be available via a third 2.4-metre system providing simultaneous reception of C- and Ku-band anywhere in the world. The t240CK features Intellian’s patented WorldView LNB and the company’s proprietary Fiber Link optical IFL solution, which delivers near zero loss between above and below deck modules for cables up to 2 kilometres in length.
“It’s always especially exciting for us to be associated with ground breaking projects like this one,” declares Eric Sung, Intellian’s President and CEO. “Every system on the PFLNG Satu is the most advanced technology of its kind. Our inclusion validates the continuing dominance of our 2.4-metre products in the high-end maritime segments, such as Cruise and Offshore Energy,” he says.
“Market adoption of our 2.4 meter systems is steadily increasing for the same reasons why our 1-meter VSAT is now the most widely deployed maritime VSAT in the world. Customers value our focus on simplifying this somewhat complex technology while delivering greater performance and a truly outstanding user experience,” Sung adds.
All of Intellian’s 2.4-metre systems pack in a single shipping container and arrive pre-configured for complete build, installation and commissioning within a single workday, while alternative systems require up to 2+ days for assembly and field calibration. Experienced partners in the Cruise segment have completed up to four full builds and installations in just two days, citing the system’s practical packaging design, consistent quality, and overall ease of assembly.
