BATS Wireless Selected to Deliver its High-Speed FPSO Communications Solution
INDIANAPOLIS February 23, 2017 – BATS Wireless (BATS), the world’s leading innovator of wireless stabilization, optimization, and tracking systems today announced that it has been selected by a major oil & gas company to deliver its innovative Platform-to-FPSO communications solution for integration offshore. The project calls for BATS to provide its state-of-the-art DVM-90XL system, which will help facilitate critical communications and data sharing between a central platform and fixed production and offloading vessel in the oil-rich Nigerian Basin.
The DVM-90XL antenna system will be outfitted with dual Aviat ODU600 radios; used to form a high-speed, high-capacity network that can offer 700 Mbit/s connectivity speeds. The expanded-size DVM-90XL offers a 360-degree continuous, marine-grade ruggedized architecture, boasting sea salt and spray-resistant composite materials with dual-layer water protection. These design improvements allow for a large antenna system that can deliver uninterrupted use in some of the harshest environments offshore.
The marine-grade BATS DVM systems deliver a wealth of cutting-edge wireless communications and data opportunities to FPSO and platform operators, enabling end users access to faster, more adaptive communications networks for both production and crew comfort. The DVM-90XL features BATS’ industry-leading antenna tracking, allowing for the dynamic connection and continual movement of high-throughput point-to-point (PTP) communications while under constant FPSO motion.
“We are pleased to provide a reliable, high-speed wireless solution that will deliver critical FPSO communications during offshore operations.” says Phillip Cramer, E.V.P. Sales & Marketing, BATS Wireless. “The need for high-capacity communications capabilities offshore is high, as it not only increases production capabilities, but also dramatically improves efficiency and safety.”
