OneWeb and Marlink are partnering to deliver OneWeb’s satellite connectivity to the maritime, energy, enterprise and humanitarian sectors.

Leveraging the combination of OneWeb's Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications and Marlink's smart network solutions, will further enhance the capabilities of Marlink's hybrid network solutions, giving its customers reliable and secure connectivity solutions.

“We are delighted to be working with OneWeb to deliver a new global, high-speed, low latency connectivity solution that is in strong demand by our remote communication customers across the market segments we serve,” said Alexandre de Luca, president energy, enterprise and government at Marlink.

As of January 2022, OneWeb and Marlink will focus on the energy sector in regions above the 50th parallel north (50 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane), with plans to expand to the maritime, energy, enterprise and humanitarian sectors globally from January 2023.

“Together with OneWeb, we will significantly improve Marlink’s hybrid connectivity solutions for our energy and maritime customers," said Tore Morten Olsen, president of maritime at Marlink.

"Adding OneWeb’s capabilities will further enhance our smart hybrid network to support the digitalisation of our customers’ remote operations, and in particular to enable our customers’ cloud applications."

In addition, OneWeb and Marlink will deploy, test and demonstrate several types of user terminals and LEO connectivity services to customers across these market segments.

OneWeb will continue to build out its constellation during 2022 to enable the company to offer commercial connectivity services globally for maritime in 2023.

“OneWeb is building a new generation of business broadband services, powered by Low Earth Orbit satellites to create a truly global connectivity network to the high seas," added Carole Plessy, vice president of maritime at OneWeb.

"OneWeb, together with Marlink connectivity solutions, will allow the maritime industry a pathway to digitalisation, both on and offshore. Marlink is the highly respected industry leader and we are delighted to be introducing the first steps in our partnership to the industry.”
