Andrew 7.6m antenna installed at Speedcast

In January 2022, Speedcast approached Skybrokers with an urgent project that involved the construction of a 7m antenna at their Teleport facility in The Netherlands. Recognizing the tight deadline, we were able to deliver an Andrew 7.6m satellite antenna equipped with full de-icing and tracking capabilities. The antenna was built between February and March 2022.

During the installation of the Earth Station Antenna, our technicians faced challenges related to panel alignment and sub-adjustments. Working closely with the client, we were able to overcome these challenges and find suitable solutions. Ultimately, the Andrew 7.6m antenna installed at Speedcast was accepted by the satellite operator before the specified 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.
