Norddeutsche Reederei has announced that it will begin installing Navarino’s Infinity Cube solution across its fleet of 50 vessels. The company, which has been operating for 150 years, has a fleet consisting mostly of modern container vessels which trade worldwide.
Norddeutsche Reederei’s IT marine system administrator Christian Mix said “We are in the process of further upgrading our connectivity capabilities, as we finished VSAT installation on all vessels last year, to increase the bandwidth available for both business and crew purposes.
“We needed a way to control and manage this new bandwidth better and looked around the market for solutions which could meet our requirements. Having done research and testing we chose the Infinity Cube from Navarino. We had heard very good things about its functionality and after a successful trial we intend to use it to the full extent. On the business side, we like that the Infinity Cube provides virtualisation for further system upgrades, full redundancy and that we can run all our business applications over it, including our purchasing system, PMS, DNV Navigator and chart updates. We will also use the Infinity Cube to enhance our crew welfare facilities, as it gives us full control over how, when and what our crews can do online at sea as well as very flexible monitoring and management tools.”
Navarino Germany vice president sales EMEA, Ivo Terhell added “Navarino is very proud to be working with Norddeutsche Reederei on enhancing their connectivity options with Infinity. It is very rewarding for us to see such a well reputed company as Norddeutsche choosing Infinity, and we are looking forward to working closely with them in order to meet the requirements of this advanced, modern fleet.”
