Global Eagle Inks Seabed Constructor Deal with Swire Seabed

Global Eagle Entertainment has signed a three-year agreement with Swire Seabed, a specialist subsea company based in Bergen, Norway.

The agreement will allow Global Eagle to provide connectivity for the multi-purpose offshore vessel, Seabed Constructor.

Seabed Constructor is currently on long term charter to Ocean Infinity who are trying to locate the missing Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, which is believed to have crashed in the Southern Indian Ocean in 2014 with 239 people onboard.

The installation for Seabed Constructor was completed in Durban, South Africa in January. Services as part of the agreement include C-band VSAT solution with high guaranteed BW and Iridium backup.

As part of the services, crew welfare with personal log in, entertainment and live TV will also be offered.

Global Eagle now provides connectivity to three out of the four Swire Seabed vessels, the company said.

Swire Seabed is one of the well-regarded industry leaders in the market. It is great to see that they go beyond providing basic necessities for the seafarers and is investing great effort to provide added amenities and increased connectivity to enhance the quality of life of their seafarers on board,” said Ole Sivertsen, Global Eagle’s senior VP Maritime.
