Dubai-based geophysical services company Polarcus has extended its global VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) contract with Marlink for a further three years. The contract includes on-going provision of reliable voice and data connectivity through Sealink, Marlink’s C-band VSAT solution for Polarcus’ fleet of seismic vessels. This year the fleet will also be migrated from a dedicated configuration to a shared non-contended configuration using the new iDirect X7 modem to benefit from more dynamic bandwidth allocation to optimise connectivity.
Polarcus’ ultra-modern seismic fleet is widely recognised as one of the most environmentally friendly in operation today. With an environmental profile based on investments in green technologies within both marine and seismic, and a commitment to a pioneering environmental agenda, reliable and smart IP connectivity is a key requirement for Polarcus.
