Elcome will equip its customers with advanced solutions that leverage the capabilities of Starlink.
Dubai-based marine electronics company Elcome International will provide SpaceXs Starlink internet services to its global maritime and mobility customers.
For more than 50 years, Elcome has been providing its maritime customers with communications solutions based on both terrestrial and satellite technology.
The service, which uses Starlink’s low-Earth orbit satellites, will connect vessels, such as merchant ships, oil rigs and luxury yachts, to internet speeds that are up to 100 times faster than traditional satellite services.
Elcome will equip its customers with cutting-edge technology-led solutions that leverage the unique capabilities of Starlink. Orders will be fulfilled from Elcome’s logistics hubs in Dubai, Singapore and Spain with a variety of installation and support options available, the company added.
Commenting on the deal, Jimmy Grewal, Elcomes Executive Director, said: “We are so excited to bring the benefits of Starlink to our customers. Its not just about the fast Internet, but the opportunity for us to implement real-time remote monitoring and autonomy solutions for these customers in ways that were not previously possible. Also, consider the benefit to crew members who will now be able to better stay in touch with family and friends while out at sea.
The company will also provide installation, integration, and field support to customers using Starlink. Elcome has already implemented multi-antenna Starlink arrays delivering hundreds of megabits of low-latency bandwidth on two superyachts catering to more than 100 crew and guests simultaneously.
