KeepUp@Sea to 110 CMA CGM vessels
The contract is part of the recent renewal of CMA CGM’s Sealink connectivity services for the ships with Marlink, with KeepUp@Sea to be used to standardize and automate vessel IT management on the vessels.
KeepUp@Sea monitors hardware and software on board a ship and throughout a fleet, allowing IT staff on shore to detect and address issues remotely and in a proactive fashion, enabling network changes and maintenance, such as software updates, to be performed from shore.
The system is integrated with Marlink’s Sealink connectivity services on the ships, and displays an overview of all linked onboard operations via a dashboard at the office for a complete fleet overview.
“We have been working closely with CMA CGM for over a year, and I am proud that all efforts made in tailoring our KeepUp@Sea framework to fit their requirements have been met,” said Palantir’s CEO, Arvid Dregelid.
“The conclusion to deploy KeepUp@Sea on CMA CGM vessels is for us a major achievement, and a confirmation of the quality of the products and services delivered by Palantir. With KeepUp@Sea, we can now support CMA CGM’s network security, efficiency and future growth ambitions in an effective manner.”
Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime at Marlink, noted how the addition of KeepUp@Sea to the service renewal contract with CMA CGM was a welcome endorsement of the success of the strategic partnership his company has established with Palantir.
“The partnership leverages the synergies between maritime connectivity, IT management and security for the benefit of users of our multi-band maritime communication services, and the maritime industry as a whole,” he said.
