Tampnet deploys cable for Aker FPSO

Thursday 5 September 2019 | 13:33 CET | News
Tampnet said it has finished deploying a fibre-optic cable to the Aker BP-operated floating production and storage offloading (FPSO) vessel "Alvheim". The FPSO is now connected to Tampnet's subsea fibre network, providing high redundancy and capacity, preparing Alvheim for digital transition. Alvheim was already connected to Tampnet's network, but this was via a lower capacity radio link from the Heimdal platform, which will be de-commissioned in 2021.
