About JR shipping
Windcat Workboats owns and operates a growing fleet of over 44 offshore crew transfer vessels, mainly in the European offshore wind sector, but also in the oil and gas industry and outside Europe. The vessels are designed and built by Windcat and, as such, include over 16 years of experience in the field. The vessel’s layout and propulsion is optimised to transfer personnel offshore in a safe and comfortable environment. Windcat’s organisation provides the highest quality of service, enabling the charterer to perform their work offshore without delay. The focus on safety has the highest priority in the operation of the vessels and can be found throughout the organisation. The size of our fleet and the variety of vessels ensures that we can deliver the right vessel to each project.

On the vessels LAN side the biggest challenge was to provide tickets with data quotas per month to the crew and insight in what is happening on the vessel when the connection is congested by video or other downloads with a high payload.
The second challenge was the cancellation of roaming. Since that has been cancelled in Europe, customers can benefit from larger data pools and thus higher data consumption. On the hardware side you need equipment that can manage the higher data throughput. That was not within the current solution.
