Tototheo Maritime, a leading provider of innovative communications and technology solutions for the maritime industry, announced that it is working with Intership Navigation to provide the Starlink service to its fleet. Intership Navigation will initially test the service on three of its ships, with the intention of implementing it across their entire fleet. Intership’s owned and managed fleet consists of various types of vessels, totalling approximately 70 ships. Additionally, Intership further manages approximately 50 ships on a crew management basis.
Starlink, developed by SpaceX, offers high-speed, low-latency satellite internet connectivity to ships at sea. It enables crew members to stay connected with their families and loved ones, while also providing faster and more reliable connectivity for critical ship-to-shore communications and operations.
"We are excited to be working with Intership Navigation to provide Starlink to their fleet," said Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, co-CEO of Tototheo Maritime. "With the increasing demand for high-speed connectivity at sea, Starlink is a game-changer for the maritime industry. Crew members can now smoothly communicate with headquarters and land-based support staff, as if they are in any office around the globe. We are proud to be at the forefront of this technological advancement and look forward to supporting Intership Navigation's digital transformation journey."
"We are constantly seeking ways to enhance the onboard experience for our crew members and improve operational efficiency," said Dieter Rohdenburg, CEO of Intership Navigation. "The Starlink service provided by Tototheo Maritime is a major step in that direction, and we are pleased to be testing it on our ships. We are confident that this service will enable us to stay connected and optimize our operations."
