Jul 7, 2023 | Case Studies

Athens based Grace Management operates a fleet of 5 modern tankers. The company is currently in the process of rolling out the high-speed, low-latency Starlink service from Navarino, with whom the company has built a long standing partnership as its technology partner. Mr. Alvertos  Maragkos, ICT Manager at Grace Management explains the thinking behind adding this new connectivity option to its vessels – ‘The decision to adopt this cutting-edge technology demonstrates Grace Management’s commitment to enhancing operational efficiency and crew welfare.

By embracing this advanced technology, we are displaying our commitment to staying at the forefront of innovation and leveraging cutting-edge solutions to enhance our operations. Technology is here to serve us and we are here to hand it over to our crew members. Now they can connect with their families and friends through high-quality video calls, messaging apps, and social media platforms, alleviating the sense of isolation and bridging the gap between life at sea and onshore.”

Konstantinos Dimitriadis, Navarino’s Account Manager for Grace Management added ‘I am very happy to see another successful implementation of Navarino’s services onto the fleet of Grace Management. With Mr Maragkos we share  a common view of how the hybrid vessel of the future is going to use various different technologies, and we worked closely together to bring this advanced setup to their fleet. Now the Grace Management crews can enjoy uninterrupted, fast and reliable connectivity for both operational and personal usage’.
