Skybrokers de-installed a Viasat 11.3m Satellite Antenna at the EMC site in Redditch UK
Skybrokers de-installed a Viasat 11.3m Satellite Antenna at the EMC (GEE/Anuvu) site in Redditch UK.
In October 2015 Skybrokers de-installed a Viasat 11.3m satellite antenna as part of a project where we had to remove two large Earth Station antennas from the AT&T site in Redditch, close to Birmingham in the UK, for EMC, formerly Global Eagle Entertainment/Anuvu. The project was executed by a three-member project and installation team and took two weeks. We could meet the stringent Health & Safety regulations by working safe and efficient. Skybrokers decommissioned two satellite antennas at AT&T site in UK that were transported back to our facility in Central Europe for Earth Station Antenna refurbishment prior to sale.
Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (GEE) was a mayor satellite service provider when it acquired Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) in July 2016. EMC was a leading communications services provider to maritime and hard-to-reach land markets. EMC acquired Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN) in 2015 and was headquartered at MTN’s Miramar, Florida offices. That new company provided remote connectivity to approximately 8,000 on-land sites and 1,600 vessels.
In July 2020 GEE filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, citing the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on global travel and the significantly reduction of airline and cruise line activities. In May 2021 GEE changed its name to Anuvu when the company emerged from Chapter 11, reflecting its focus on next-generation passenger and guest connected experiences in the air and at sea.
