Thuraya concludes maritime roadshows in Russia


Staff Report

Dubai: Thuraya Telecommunications Company recently completed two maritime roadshows in the Russian Far East cities of Vladivostok and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk alongside its regional service partner, GTNT.

The company met with influential industry officials to hold presentations on the Thuraya Atlas IP, a top-range ‘at sea’ satellite internet terminal and the first Thuraya equipment of its kind to receive type approval from the Maritime and River Registers of Russia. Both cities on Thuraya’s tour have access to the Sea of Japan and the Okhotsk Sea, and are regular hubs for naval professionals and potential customers.

Keith Murray, Senior Product Manager at Thuraya said, “The Russian Far East is a strategic
region for maritime business and Thuraya has now gained access to it. There’s a lot of potential for us here, with its busy ports, international trade routes, and maritime borders shared with Japan and the US; the area is a hotspot for shipping, fisheries, transport and offshore energy. Thanks to GTNT’s help, we had successful meetings with several decision-makers and got to discuss our product and service offerings, and future collaboration opportunities. We are confident that the Atlas IP can boost operational efficiency across the region’s maritime enterprise as it is developed to meet the specific complexities of nautical communications.”
