Leading tanker company, TORM, has chosen Dualog Connection Suite as its maritime communications solution.
“Dualog has what we need,” says Hannemann, Head of Vessel IT and Navigation Equipment Support at TORM, who is particularly pleased with the Internet and email services available to crew members on board the company’s vessels.
“It is no longer a question of whether it is important for maritime personnel to have access to the Internet at all times. It is a fundamental requirement,” says Hannemann. “And it’s not only for the crew. Our business can benefit directly from a fully online fleet.”
100 modern vessels
From their headquarters in Copenhagen, TORM operates a fleet of approximately 100 modern product tankers and bulk carriers in global trade. Dualog Connection Suite will ensure secure and stable data communication between ship and shore.
“Dualog provides the most comprehensive set of services that match our requirements,” says Hannemann. This includes, amongst other things, file transfer, crew email, business email and internet optimisation.
Easy to manage
“With Dualog Connection Suite we can easily manage onboard networks from shore,” he explains.
“We now have integrated and standardised management services for everything from business email to the control and optimisation of Internet traffic. That makes us ready for present and future requirements.”
“Another reason why we chose Dualog is that we needed a reliable partner who could provide quality products and services and give us the necessary assistance should the need arise. We have also seen for ourselves that Dualog’s people are easy to work with,” concludes a content IT Manager.
