As always there is so much to see at this thriving annual industry event.   
If you are shopping for new equipment and want to network Seawork is a show not to be missed.
Of course, for those looking for electronics we don’t want you to miss Stand H15.
Especially our latest portfolio addition, a revolution in satellite communications, Starlink.
It can give any vessel, large or small, wherever they work in the world, faster satellite broadband.
And have you seen the latest draft VHF regs and need upgraded equipment.
More time is being considered necessary, with a suggested implementation date in 2026. ‍

Small, smart and delivers fast broadband at sea

‍Introducing a game changer. Something that was not economically possible before, super-fast satellite broadband.

Starlink competes on price, comes complete with a growing record for high performance and delivers up to 220Mbps download.

For your business, wherever it sails, Starlink provides an added online efficiency bonus. And for your crew it can mean the pleasure and benefits of fast internet connections and a happy crew is a happy ship.

Starlink is the ideal companion to Vsat and other satellite systems. As a back-up system and crew calling service it makes the ideal global link.

No matter what size the vessel, or where it operates, Starlink works across the world’s trade routes.

Charity & Taylor, based in the UK, is an authorised Starlink reseller and part of the Aage Hempel group. 


Global capability means we can supply from stock, install and support Starlink equipment worldwide.  Call sales on: +44 (0)1493 804 731 or click here to email

TZ Coastal Monitoring and Security.‍

C&T has installed a surveillance system aboard two production platforms in the North Sea for a UK oil major.

This comprehensive system transmits Radar images from the platform to safety standby vessels. The images, sent over the internet, give a full 360-degree coverage of the gas field at all times.
The system meets requirements to have the best protection for offshore assets.

This major increase in security is to prevent threats and accidents.  Incidents such as out-of-control vessels, acts of piracy or terrorism and extreme weather conditions.  These pose significant safety risks to the platform and its maintenance costs.

The system also features recording and playback options to review any potential incidents.
As a Furuno distributor we were able to use the TZ Coastal Monitoring software. Integration with Furuno hardware offers advanced, native compatibility. This features with most of the newer Furuno radars on the market.

Furuno Electric Company has gained an unrivalled industry reputation as a world leader. This has resulted through technical excellence with a worldwide distribution and service network.
