Successful launch for W2A

By Chris Dziadul | April 4, 2009

Eutelsat has successfully launched its W2A satellite from the Baikonur cosmodrome.

Carrying a payload of up to 46 Ku-band and 10 C-band transponders, it will also triple the groups capacity in the key 10 degrees East neighbourhood.

W2As launch marks the latest in a series of nine planned by Eutelsat in the period 2008-2011.

The first two satellites Hot Bird 9 and Atlantic Bird 4A - are already deployed, with the next to follow, in the middle of this year, being W7. It will principally target Russia and sub-Saharan Africa.
