Hispasat to help connect Spanish rescue boats in Mediterranean

Tuesday 20 November 2018 | 15:16 CET | News
Spanish satellite operator Hispasat has joined forces with maritime communication specialist Syntelix to provide satellite internet services free of charge to the charity Proactiva Open Arms. The satellite operator pledged to allocate managed space capacity so that the charity's Open Arms and Astral boats can access the internet as they rescue migrants adrift in the Mediterranean Sea. Syntelix will manage the installation, maintenance and operation of the equipment, with Hispasat providing the service via its Hispasat 30W-5 and Hispasat 30W-6 satellites.
