Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc) has  announced  the signing and renewal of multiple agreements with Harris CapRock, a provider of communications to remote and harsh environments, for the provision of satellite capacity services from its 1°West orbital location.


Utlizing TSBc’s THOR 10-02 satellite, Harris CapRock provides capacity to serve a number of its strategic energy and maritime clients, offering high-powered coverage throughout Europe.


“Over the past two years, TSBc has been working closely with Harris CapRock to deliver satellite capacity, for services to some of its most important customers,” said Morten Tengs, Vice President and CEO of TSBc. “TSBc holds a strong European maritime position at 1°West for the delivery of satellite services to the main maritime and energy satellite communication service providers. With our new satellite, THOR 7, expected to start commercial operation in mid-2014, we look forward to being able to extend our satellite capacity and related services to Harris CapRock and continue to strengthen our growing partnership.”


“Some of our largest customers require increased bandwidth to support remote monitoring, diagnostics and other information that have a direct impact on how ships and vessels operate effectively at sea,” said Andy Lucas, Global Operating Officer of Harris CapRock. “The satellite-capacity solutions offered by TSBc allow for continued requirements that are intended for both our existing customers and new prospects.”


Harris CapRock is using the THOR 10-02 capacity for specific coverage requirements in key European territories and is uplinking services via its own teleport facilities located in Aberdeen, Scotland.
