shipznet chooses Electronav for new partnership in Greece


30 years experience brings 3G communication to the maritime Greek market

Wentorf/Hamburg/Piraeus, 20. February 2017: bobz GmbH and Electronav, a 30 years established company in Greece for connected solutions in maritime IT communication, had announced their partnership agreement today. shipznet, a well known development of bobz GmbH, is the only high speed mobile network service „made in Germany“ for merchant shipping, that offers a world-wide, midsize or Europe monthly flat rate near-shore or in harbors, without any additional roaming costs. With shipznet Electronav can now provide a 3G mobile broadband solution.

This partnership with shipznet brings an unique solution for the Greek maritime market. With shipznet solution, our customers can lower significantly the cost of FleetBroadband and also offer a low cost crew welfare solution. The up to 30 km range and the single sim for every country makes shipznet a very appealing solution for our customers. We are very pleased shipznet has chosen Electronav to be partner of choice for the Greek maritime market“, says Stavros Kontizas, Managing Director of Electronav.

Reduce communication costs significantly

shipznet provides a very small above-deck unit with two antennas that guarantees easy installation. The below-deck unit serves as a router and takes over the power supply for the above-deck unit. shipznet complements either FleetBroadband, regarding high volume costs, Iridium regarding low transfer rates or VSAT as a back-up solution.

However, shipznet is also an ideal stand alone solution. Especially the feature „crew solution“ makes shipznet interesting for shipping companies since offering the crew a better and less expensive way of communication.

With Electronav we have found a very well known partner with 30 years experience in the Greek market. Electronav understands our shipznet solution and will build an excellent bridge between shippping companies in Greece and bobz GmbH“, says Claudia Bobzin, Managing Director of bobz GmbH.
