Odfjell Drilling has awarded Harris CapRock Communications three contracts and four renewals worth approximately $13 to deliver turnkey very small aperture terminal communications to seven mobile offshore drilling rigs and drill ships.
The VSAT communications will provide Voice over IP, corporate networking, Internet access, real-time monitoring and reporting, and crew infotainment services.
The sites are either currently operating in the North Sea and Africa or are under construction in South Korea.

We provide the equipment, service and management of the service so Odfjell has one point of contact for its infotainment requirements.”
