Strasbourg, 21 June 2021 – Eutelsat and Overon have extended their Multi-year, multi-transponder agreement for Ku wide-beam capacity. The capacity will be utilized by Overon’s customer, EUMETSAT, the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment from space.
The multi-year, multi transponder contract for Ku wide-beam resources includes incremental capacity from 2023 onwards compared with the current contract. Overon will leverage the EUTELSAT 10A satellite, with a provision to transfer to EUTELSAT 10B once it enters service.
The capacity is located at 10° East, one of Eutelsat’s long-standing orbital locations and a key position for data networks with unrivalled coverage of the European, Middle Eastern and African zones.
