OceanNet changes the way we communicate offshore

Thirty years ago communications between offshore facilities and onshore locations was limited to a two-way radio and daily reports. Back then, oilfield workers stationed offshore were virtually cut off from the rest of the world. Additionally, the amount of staff required on each rig and facility offshore was great because all the information to make decisions was gathered at these remote locations.

Offshore communications have come a long way since then. Now, real-time communications are able to transfer from offshore data to onshore offices and the way the offshore industry works has been transformed by improved communications systems.

The most common way of communication in the shipping industry was using Satellite based technologies. This method has a few major cons: a slight delay in data transmittal, finite bandwidth, and main problem – it is an extremely expensive technique.

But in 2002, a new solution was born. Mr. Nobu Su, CEO of TMT shipping company, has invented an efficient and cost-effective system which enables the transmission of data via an offshore mobile communications network, without the need for expensive satellite communications.

This technology, named OceanNet, does only enable ship crews to communicate with family and friends, but also improve safety, security and operational efficiency by allowing ships to transmit critical information to other vessels within a 20 to 30km range, such as the latest weather conditions or the location of a strand vessel.

Su’s patents have been registered in the United Kingdom (2002), the United States (2004) and Korea (2009), and is considered a great breakthrough in the sector. Nowadays, more and more ship owners acknowledge the benefits provided by OceanNet, and the Patent is increasingly taking control over the conventional offshore-communication method.
