Crew welfare

For crew, being able to contact their loved ones back home and accessing a few home comforts plays a vital role in their wellbeing. Our range of handheld and broadband terminals allow oil rig owners the opportunity to improve crew welfare and quality of life by allowing crew to make calls, watch television (TVRO), access the internet and send texts and emails, from any location and in any weather.

As a responsible partner we are also mindful that bandwidth is managed efficiently. Our INTEGRA service gives you the insight to prioritise critical communications and make key bandwidth management decisions backed by automated insights and data.
