Eutelsat awards contract for 36D satellite to Airbus

Monday 22 March 2021 | 11:24 CET | News
Eutelsat has selected Airbus to procure a new all-electric satellite, 36D, to succeed 36B at the 36 degree East orbital position. With coverage of Africa, Russia and Europe, this orbital slot ranks third in terms of revenue generation, said the company, after 13 degrees East (Hotbird) and 7/8 degrees West. It houses Eutelsat's 36C and 36B, with the latter expected to reach its end of life at the end of 2026.
