From tugs and harbour launchers to larger multicast and offshore crew transfer vessels (CTV's), the workboat sector plays an incredibly important part in supporting offshore and in-port operations.

Operators of coastal and offshore workboat vessels often work in rough seas and harsh environments and require highly reliable and effective equipment and technology in these unique environments.

AST Networks helps workboat vessels plan, administer and monitor vessel maintenance and servicing tasks in near real-time with automated reporting. We have tailored solutions specifically for the workboat sector so that companies have peace of mind, knowing that their vessels and crew are operating safely and efficiently.

Resilient connectivity for shoreside-to-vessel communications

Regardless of a vessel’s location in port or at sea, with AST Networks' global coverage, vessels can rely on a connection to enable operational communication with shoreside teams, offshore platforms and other vessels.

VSAT connectivity and on-board broadband services provide the connection for critical and operations comms as well as crew connectivity. Our unique solutions also allow crews to surf the web, catch up with family and friends and enjoy entertainment during downtime.

Vessel monitoring

Remote vessel monitoring technologies have advanced and improved over the years with added functionality such as engine and sensor monitoring telemetry to always available VSAT satellite broadband communications.

AST Networks' onboard hardware connects to the vessel's most expensive component (the engines) and transmits the data in near real-time to a simple shoreside user web interface. This interface then allows shore-based operations staff instant, clear visibility of the not just the vessels location but also its engine data.

Vessel maintenance

iRAMS Vessels is a ground-breaking proven vessel engine and asset tracking and management system that provides the ability to feed vessel information data automatically into preventative maintenance schedules.

iRAMS Vessels integrates seamlessly with our Planned Maintenance System (PMS) so that you can plan, monitor, record and implement complex maintenance tasks, including compliance reporting and innovative predictive maintenance monitoring.
