Consilium Marine Group and Orange Business Services announces today a high-level global cooperation agreement for Maritime Satellite Services. The collaboration combines satellite and maritime experience from Orange with Consilium’s leadership in safety and navigation solutions for the shipping industry.

Consilium Marine Group, a worldwide supplier of marine products and customer services, and Orange Business Services, a leading global integrator of communication solutions, announces today that they have signed a high-level global cooperation agreement.

Consilium will globally market Orange marine VSAT communication solutions through its 34 offices in 19 countries.

Orange Satellite Services includes a VSAT satellite communication system specially developed for marine communications and that integrates vessels into a corporate network enabling access to all business applications as if the vessel is a terrestrial office.

This global cooperation brings together the 40 years of satellite and maritime experience from Orange Business Services with Consilium’s leadership in developing and marketing products and systems for safety and navigation to the shipping industry.

“We look forward to progressing this cooperation agreement, and it will also allow us to develop our systems to their full extent for compliance with the industry’s never-ending enhancement of safety requirements,” said Ove Hansson, president, Consilium AB. “Improved communication for verbal and written conversation and remote diagnostics are only a few features enabling this and that can be made possible by this collaboration.”

Roger Söderberg, Vice President Nordics & Baltics, Orange Business Services, said: “The success of this cooperation agreement will bring more customer value to the respective offers of Consilium and Orange Business Services. Working together, we can provide customers the option of having their products and systems from Consilium integrated into a communications system that provides real-time broadband services to vessels wherever they are. Through this solution, Consilium products and systems can be managed from the shore which can lead to decreased operational costs, such as saving fuel thanks to ECDIS.”

The Bluefish SNAV platform, presently under development, is designed to be a robotic ocean workhorse. Based on a stable SWASH hull this design is under development in the UK, looking to expand into the US and other maritime countries. This robot ship uses no diesel fuel to monitor the oceans autonomously (COLREGS compliant) at relatively high speed 24/7 and 365 days a year - only possible with the revolutionary (patent) energy harvesting system. The hullform is ideal for automatic release and recovery of ROVs or towed arrays, alternating between drone and fully autonomous modes. International enquiries are welcome.  This vessel pays for itself in fuel saved every ten years. The Bluefish uses satellites to communicate information to its operators.
