Skybrokers de-installed a VertexRSI 9.0m Earth Station Antenna for RBB in Potsdam, Germany

VertexRSI 9m Earth Station Antenna de-installation

In March 2022 Skybrokers was contracted by Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB), headquartered in Berlin in Germany, to de-install and remove a VertexRSI 9m Earth Station Antenna from the site. The antenna system was located in the Potsdam Wildpark and was disassembled in June 2022 with a three-member project and installation team and great help of crane company Engel-Krane, GmbH.

Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (Berlin-Brandenburg Broadcasting, RBB), is the national broadcaster in Berlin and Brandenburg in Germany. RBB was established in Potsdam on May 1st 2003 through the merger of the SFB (Sender Freies Berlin) and the ORB (Ostdeutscher Rundfunk Brandenburg). The company has studios in Berlin, Potsdam, Cottbus and Frankfurt (Oder).

Potsdam (former DDR), capital and largest city of the German state of Brandenburg, was a residence of the Prussian kings and the German Kaiser until 1918. The 1,000-year-old city is widely known for its palaces, its lakes and its overall historical and cultural significance. Landmarks include the parks and palaces of Sanssouci, Germany’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as other beautiful Palaces such as the Orangery Palace, the New Palace (Neues Palais), the Cecilienhof Palace and the Charlottenhof Palace.


Thank you very much for the assistance in the removal of the 9m antenna from the Potsdam Wildpark on such a short notice. We are pleased with the work that has been carried out and the way the project was managed.
