Hanzevast renews communications infrastructure
Dutch Bulk carrier operator and investor Hanzevast Shipping reports that its four handysize bulk carriers “Hanze Gdansk", "Hanze Gendt", "Hanze Genua" and "Hanze Göteborg", each double-hulled, 35.000 DWT vessels with four 30 t cranes, have completed the renewal of its fleet IT-communications infrastructure, provided by Groningen-based Castor Marine’s service desk.
Peter Dekker, director at Hanzevast Shipping and Hanzevast Capital: "When it became apparent that the existing onboard communications infrastructure was no longer fit for the purpose, we quickly decided to seek options and alternatives. One of the reasons we chose Castor Marine was that it offers 24/7 remote monitoring and support services, which we feel is crucial. All the more so because our vessels operate worldwide." (lh)
