Getting Their Hands On Five Intelsat Launches Is Sea Launch
Sea Launch and Intelsat have signed a multiple launch services contract for five missions on the Sea Launch system, scheduled for execution beginning in late 2010 through 2012.
“We want to thank the Intelsat team for their continued confidence in our team and our launch system,” said Kjell Karlsen, president and general manager of Sea Launch. “This agreement demonstrates the long-standing partnership that Sea Launch has developed with Intelsat over several years, featuring eight successful missions to date, most recently the flawless launch of the Galaxy-19 satellite on September 24. This award, from the industry’s leading satellite operator, represents a significant addition to the Sea Launch manifest. We are looking forward to executing these five additional missions in support of Intelsat’s fleet replacement requirements.”
“Intelsat has had a long-term relationship with Sea Launch. This year, Sea Launch executed two successful launch missions for Intelsat, delivering our Galaxy 18 and Galaxy 19 spacecraft into orbit which completely refreshed the North American Galaxy fleet,” said Ken Lee, Intelsat’s senior vice president, space systems. “We look forward to working with Sea Launch in the years to come as we introduce new spacecraft, optimized to deliver critical transmission services for our video, voice, network services and government customers.”
