Eutelsat signs new launch contract with Arianespace
by Staff Writers
Kourou, French Guiana (ESA) Jun 03, 2017


"The technological diversity of the three new satellites entrusted to Arianespace is a compelling reflection of our commitment to innovation for the greater benefit of our customers, and to maintaining our competitiveness."

Following the launch of the EUTELSAT 172B satellite, Eutelsat Communications announced a new launch services contract with Arianespace.

The Arianespace order book now includes three future launches for Eutelsat in addition to the 32 Eutelsat satellites already launched by the European launch services provider over more than 30 years for one of the world's leading satellite operators.

Of the three satellites to be launched, EUTELSAT 7C (built by SSL) will be orbited in 2018, followed in 2019 by Eutelsat Quantum built by Airbus and the high throughput satellite built by Thales.

Commenting on this latest contract, Rodolphe Belmer, Chief Executive Officer of Eutelsat, said: "Following today's historic Ariane launch of Europe's first high-power all-electric satellite, we are proud to once again team up with Arianespace, a long-standing partner and a leader in Europe's vibrant space industry.

"The technological diversity of the three new satellites entrusted to Arianespace is a compelling reflection of our commitment to innovation for the greater benefit of our customers, and to maintaining our competitiveness."

Stephane Israel, Chief Executive Officer of Arianespace, added: "This latest contract bolsters Eutelsat's position as a benchmark customer of Europe's heavy launcher, since Ariane 5 will launch three satellites for the European operator in 2018 and 2019.

"Our hope is that Ariane 6 will subsequently take over so that we can help Eutelsat meet its objectives even more efficiently."

Established in 1977, Eutelsat Communications is one of the world's leading and most experienced operators of communications satellites.
