Satellite operator Eutelsat has extended its maritime satcom capacity deal with Marlink to support expansion in Africa and the Middle East (specifically in the Red Sea and the Gulf) and to integrate with its existing services in the Americas and Asia.
The new deal is an extension of the companies’ current Global Maritime Partnership, signed in 2019.
Marlink has made a multi-year commitment for GEO Ku-band capacity on multiple Eutelsat satellites, covering the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe to deliver targeted capacity with guaranteed levels of throughput to specific sailing areas.
“We are hugely excited to deepen our relationship with Marlink, confirming Eutelsat as one of the go-to satellite network operators for maritime connectivity,” said Philippe Oliva, Eutelsat’s Chief Commercial Officer.
“We look forward to continuing to support Marlink as it rolls out its best-in-class service to seafarers in all segments of the maritime industry, with existing and future capacity on our fleet.”
