18 Apr 17

Speedcast International has won two new system integration contracts with a fabricator for the oil and gas industry.

Speedcast International is a provider of remote communications technology for government and enterprise customers. The company was founded in Hong Kong in 1999.

Speedcast has been named the telecoms systems integrator in both contracts, responsible for all telecommunications components. The agreements will see Speedcast design, integrate, test and deliver the entire communications systems solution.

The first of these projects is in support of a new wellhead platform to be located offshore Brazil. This telecom package includes 14 systems.

The second of these projects is for a new pipeline support platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The package includes 19 systems.

These systems include elements such as wide-area and local-area networks, closed-circuit television (CCTV), company phone, public address and general alarm (PAGA), television receive-only (TVRO) and meteorological monitoring.

“Being awarded the telecommunications component for both of these projects is evidence of the great strides we are continuing to make in growing our systems integration business,” says Keith Johnson, EVP of Energy, Speedcast.

Johnson says that these wins not only position the company well for ongoing and continued support of these projects, but also for future projects.

Johnson adds, “our global systems integration team offers our customers tremendous value by ensuring their communication system needs are designed, integrated and installed using an experienced, certified and trained global team.”

Speedcast’s systems integration experience spans 30 years and includes engineering and design, procurement, testing and installation.
