Paris, France (SPX) Jan 18, 2011
Continuing a 28-year relationship marked by 25 launch campaigns, Eutelsat Communications and Arianespace have announced they have concluded a new contract for a satellite launch in the 2012 period.

The contract, signed in December 2010, for an Ariane 5 launch from the Guiana Space Centre, provides Eutelsat with launch diversity and schedule assurance for its significant in-orbit expansion programme of six satellites to be launched by mid-2013.

Commenting on this latest contract, Arianespace Chairman and CEO Jean-Yves Le Gall said: "I particularly wish to thank Eutelsat for their continued confidence in our services. Arianespace is very proud of the preferred partnership we have built with Eutelsat over more than a quarter of a century.

"This contract is our 26th with Eutelsat, one of the world's leading satellite operators, and further evidence of the outstanding service and solutions offered by Arianespace."

Eutelsat CEO, Michel de Rosen, added: "With two thirds of our satellites launched by Arianespace, Eutelsat has been able to consistently count on their capacity for delivering reliability, flexibility and on-time performance.

"This mission for 2012 is a new marker in a solid and longstanding relationship between our two companies, enabling Eutelsat to pursue our objective to renew and expand the resources and quality of service we provide to our customers."
