New Zealand marine electronics specialist Electronic Navigation Ltd and SatComms Australia have entered into a joint venture, forming SatComms NZ.
SatComms is a specialist provider of mobile and fixed satellite solutions, from basic handheld technology to fully-integrated network solutions. The partnership will see SatComms bring its airtime and satellite expertise, while ENL will provide experience in hardware and local on the ground support.
SatComms NZ will also offer products and services directly related to mobile communications.
“Our service portfolio will integrate New Zealand into global satellite infrastructure, providing communication solutions for the wide spectrum of marine users such as commercial fishing, ocean sailors, super yachts, as well as government agencies and land-based customers,” said Calvin Clements, Satcomms NZ sales and marketing manager.
“Mobile satellite communication is becoming more and more necessary in today’s global marine environment. In super yacht applications we are increasingly seeing more clients requiring broadband data capability at sea as their vessel becomes an extension of the office.”
