Inmarsat has signed a service and installation agreement with Radio Holland to support customer demand for rapid migration from XpressLink to Fleet Xpress services.

The non-exclusive agreement augments Inmarsat’s existing service partner and VAR arrangements, reflecting a specific need to draw on the extensive Radio Holland support network to accelerate the installation of Fleet Xpress on a global scale.

“Fleet Xpress is currently installed at a rate of around 150 vessels every month, with the split being half new installations and half upgrades,” explained Trond Leira, senior vice president of service delivery and customer support at Inmarsat.

She concluded: “We expect this number to increase in 2017 and our priority is to ensure that installation of Fleet Xpress keeps pace with demand. The agreement with Radio Holland extends the Inmarsat service network and brings access to a pool of experienced, skilled engineers in the world’s busiest ports.”
