Marlink acquires Palantir

Belgium-headquartered Marlink has acquired Palantir AS, a Norwegian maritime IT company specialising in remote IT management solutions. The Share Purchase Agreement whereby Marlink acquired 100% of Palantir AS shares was completed on March 17 2017.

Palantir provides IT managers on shore with easy access to individual vessels or entire fleets for remote support and management of on board IT networks. Marlink and Palantir already enjoy a close working relationship through a strategic partnership agreement started in September 2014, which has enabled Marlink to deliver integrated IT management services to its Sealink multi-band communications service customers.

Palantir’s maritime IT solutions enable shipowners and operators to significantly improve fleet efficiency while reducing maintenance costs through standardisation, automation and remote management. Palantir is the company behind the sophisticated KeepUp@Sea managed IT service, which monitors all IT networks on board a vessel and across a fleet, providing significant savings by enabling IT staff on shore to detect and address issues remotely. KeepUp@Sea is the ideal complement to Marlink’s Sealink multi-band communications services.
