Marlink Renews Contract with Telenor

March 12, 2012

Marlink renews and increases satellite contract with Telenor Satellite Broadcasting; More flexibility provides growing value for Marlink customers.


Marlink, a maritime VSAT service provider recently acquired by Astrium, announced an agreement with Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc) , a satellite provider of broadcast and data services throughout Europe and the Middle East, to renew and increase Marlink’s capacity  for the next three years.  Utilising TSBc’s IS 10-02 high powered satellite capacity , located at  the prime orbital location , 1°West, Marlink is able to meet the future requirements of its many maritime customers  in the busy oceanic areas of the Nordic, European and Middle Eastern regions.


TSBc’s capacity on Intelsat 10-02 provides unsurpassed coverage above 60˚ North offering high throughput for Offshore, Transportation and Ferry customers of Marlink, one of few providers offering reliable services in this far Northern region. The contract confirms Marlink’s commitment to providing its customers with robust Ku-band coverage in these key areas of business. The agreement provides significant Ku-band capacity on Spot 2 of the satellite and almost 200 MHz Ku band on Spot 1.


In a further move to create a flexible growth path, the agreement with TSBc  confirms an option for Marlink to use the Ka-band payload of the new THOR  7 satellite which will be operational in early 2014. This will provide additional capacity to support the increased demand anticipated from maritime customers in the coming years.
