Tokai Kisen Trials Starlink on ‘Salvia Maru’ and ‘Tachibana Maru’

Tokai Kisen Salvia Maru (3rd generation)

Tokai Kisen is conducting trials of SpaceX’s satellite communication service, ‘Starlink,’ on the large passenger ships ‘Salvia Maru’ and ‘Tachibana Maru.’

The trial aims to verify the communication speed and load of satellite communications, which are much slower at sea compared to land. It will be available for use in onboard restaurants among other places. On routes to Miyake Island, Mikurajima, and Hachijojima, the service may not be available in some instances due to laws and regulations.

The trial on ‘Salvia Maru’ is scheduled to begin with the night voyage on November 27, while ‘Tachibana Maru’ is expected to start around mid-December, with both trials running until the daytime voyage on December 27.
