Hellas Sat 3 and Hellas Sat 4 to establish an extended and more diversified satellite footprint says Minister

The ambitious plans of Hellas Sat to launch two new telecommunications satellites, Hellas Sat 3 and Hellas Sat 4 next year, will establish an extended and even more diversified satellite footprint with substantially higher capacity offerings in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said Minister of Transport Marios Demetriades at the Hellas Sat 3 launch event in French Guiana, on Thursday.

This is instrumental in reinforcing Cyprus’ position as an attractive satellite communications centre, helping us to reach our long-term policy goal of making Cyprus a regional service centre, especially for telecommunications services, taking advantage of our geographic location, our favourable tax system, the harmonized European telecommunications regulatory environment, and the expertise and experience that organizations such as Hellas Sat have to offer, said the Minister.

He added that the presence of Hellas Sat in Cyprus is a major step forward in the country’s efforts to reinforce its position as an established regional satellite communications centre.

Cyprus collaboration with Hellas Sat dates back to 2001 when Cyprus and Greece jointly authorised Hellas Sat, which placed Cyprus on the global satellite map. Ever since the Department of Electronic Communications of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works has granted Hellas Sat the necessary authorization and supports the coordination and regulatory requirements for the frequency bands used by the Hellas Sat satellites.

The Minister said that Cyprus is committed to make every necessary effort to support and facilitate the activities of the satellite operators in Cyprus that will lead to further investments, leveraging on the country’s experienced personnel, advanced facilities and infrastructure.

The Minister wished Hellas Sat and its parent organization Arabsat, one of the world’s leading satellite operators, every success in their business and added that he hoped they can extend cooperation further, as advancements in technologies and service offerings open up new avenues and opportunities for closer collaboration.

The Minister expressed feeling of national pride seeing the flags of Cyprus and Greece fly high on the Ariane 5 payload fairing and said that a new page in our countries’ space history is being written today.
