Skybrokers de-installed the Reuters teleport with 5 large Earth Station Antennas in New York City USA

Skybrokers de-installed the Reuters teleport in New York City USA

In April 2016 Skybrokers was contracted to dismantle and remove five large Earth Station antennas (VertexRSI 6.1m, VertexRSI 7.2m, Andrew 7.3m, VertexRSI 9.0m and a RSI 9.2m) at the Reuters teleport facility in Hauppauge on Long Island close to New York City, USA.

Over the course of three weeks Skybrokers technicians de-installed the antennas and loaded them into ocean going containers and the site was cleaned up. This project was subject to detailed planning and logistics. We could not have done this without the help of our logistic partners and local help. Special thanks to John Knight of CTS Media who made this project happen.

The antennas were transported to our antenna facility in Europe for refurbishment. The majority of the antennas found a new home in Greenland, Italy, UK and Cyprus.
