Marlink adds EMEA VSAT capacity with Eutelsat deal

Marlink has signed a new multi-year commitment with Eutelsat for GEO High Throughput Ku-band capacity on its new EUTELSAT 10B satellite, covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa, including key maritime routes.

This new deal will provide access to targeted, flexible bandwidth within EUTELSAT 10B’s coverage area, after the satellite entered service in July 2023 at the 10°East orbital position.

The satellite carries two multi-spotbeam High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) Ku-band payloads: a payload covering the North Atlantic corridor, Europe, the Mediterranean basin, and the Middle East, and a second payload extending coverage over the Atlantic Ocean, Africa, and the Indian Ocean.

“We are thrilled to deepen our partnership with Marlink, which confirms Eutelsat as one of the most trusted satellite network operators for maritime connectivity,” said Cyril Dujardin, Eutelsat Group Co-General Manager of the Connectivity Business Unit.

“EUTELSAT 10B is a powerful new satellite which opens up mobile connectivity solutions for Marlink in even more seas and oceans of the globe. We look forward to continuing to support Marlink as it continues to roll out its state-of-the-art service to seafarers in all segments of the maritime industry.”
