Qatar-based satellite operator Es’hailSat has issued a request for proposals for a second satellite.
The Es’Hail 2 satellite will be placed in orbit at the regional hotspot at 26° East.
Es’hailSat said the new satellite will significantly add to its capacity to deliver premium DTH services across the Middle East and North Africa.
Es’hail 2 will have Ku-band and Ka-band capabilities. Propospals to build and launch the satellite are due by the end of April, with the satellite expected to be launched towards the end of 2016.
Es’hail 1 entered service at the end of last year. Customers include Al Jazeera and beIN Sport.
“With the success of our first satellite – Es’hail 1 – we are delighted to move forward with our satellite procurement program. Es’hail 2 demonstrates both our commitment to providing premium satellite capacity for broadcasters in the MENA region and to building a sustainable satellite industry for the State of Qatar,” said Es’hailSat CEO Ali Al Kuwari.
