VertexRSI 7.2m antenna fro Marlink

In February 2022 Skybrokers Project and Installation team delivered, installed and commissioned an used and refurbished VertexRSI 7.2m Earth Station Antenna with RF chain to Marlink in Cayenne, French Guiana. The project was complex and required lots of procurement, planning and logistics. We encountered some challenging times during the COVID-19 events that caused unexpected delays but our team could finish the installation successfully.
