Andrew 7.6m antenna installed at Speedcast

In January 2022 Speedcast contacted Skybrokers for an urgent project that required a 7m antenna to be built in their Teleport in The Netherlands. We could meet the tight deadline by delivering an Andrew 7.6m satellite antenna including full de-icing and tracking that was built in February/March in 2022. The Earth Station Antenna installation contained some challenges with regards to the panel alignment and sub adjustment that our technicians, in conjunction with the client, could solve. The Andrew 7.6m antenna installed at Speedcast was finally accepted by the satellite operator before the deadline.

Speedcast has grown to be one of the major satellite service providers in the Asia-Pacific and EMEA regions, with a global maritime network serving customers worldwide. Thru the years Speedcast acquired various companies such as GeoLink from France, NewSat satellite operator from Australia after its bankruptcy, ST Teleport in Singapore, Globecomm Europe and Harris Caprock.

In February 2020 the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. On March 11th 2021, Speedcast announced the completion of its restructuring and emerged from chapter 11 proceedings under the ownership of Centerbridge Partners, L.P. The company now is consolidating its facilities and services over 350 customers across more than 2,000 terrestrial sites in about 50 countries and almost 1,200 maritime vessels and offshore rigs.
