New location to support maritime and oil and gas operations in the North Sea and Europe

Global satellite (VSAT) and terrestrial communications services provider Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) announced today has opened a new location in Aberdeen, Scotland to support its maritime and oil and gas operations in the North Sea and throughout Europe.  

The new office is located at:

Westpoint House
Westhill
Aberdeenshire
AB32 6FJ
Scotland

EMC employees will deploy, maintain, and manage satellite communications for customers operating in the region.

The Aberdeen market is key for maritime, shipping and offshore oil and gas activities in the North Sea and surrounding regions.  EMC’s growing presence in these verticals warrants a dedicated location to expand upon these capabilities and services.

“Our investment in the Aberdeen location better positions EMC to deliver and respond to customers requiring satellite communications in the North Sea,” said says Blake McLane, President and Chief Marketing Officer, Emerging Markets Communications. “Customers in maritime and oil and gas segments are demanding more reliability and faster deployments of VSAT services. Our in-country inventory and proximity to the North Sea enables EMC to meet the highest SLAs for these requirements through our new location in Aberdeen.”

The Aberdeen office will house business development, operations and technical personnel for the maritime vertical, and will be in close proximity to EMC’s Research & Development function in Norway.
