Inmarsat (LSE: ISAT.L) has signed a ground-breaking Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Samsung Heavy Industries (“SHI”), establishing a relationship to leverage the ‘smart ship’ connectivity offered by Fleet Xpress at the vessel construction stage. 
 
The strategic agreement envisages the leading South Korean yard installing Inmarsat-approved terminal hardware and offering applications to cover remote machinery diagnostics and CCTV services, to leverage the satellite communications platform’s capabilities from the moment the ship is delivered.
