NFSRITS Contract Win
Avanti Communications Group plc (AIM: AVN), the broadband satellite operator, has been selected as a member of the NFSRITS (North Sea Freight and Intelligent Transport Solutions) consortium to deploy communications services to improve the safety and security of freight operations in the EU’s North Sea region. The project, worth €600,000 over the next three years to Avanti, will provide new communications services across the main transport corridors, including at ports, lorry parks and freight terminals.
The project is supported by European Union's structural funds.
David Williams, Chief Executive of Avanti, said: “Avanti has a strong track record in developing new applications for its satellite communications technologies through work with the European Commission. The NSFRITS project builds on existing Avanti projects addressing the communications needs of the transport sector. This project win also demonstrates Avanti’s ability to secure European Structural funds to support innovative communications projects and extend the distribution channels for Avanti services.”
