Eutelsat Konnect VHTS satellite lift-off

Manufactured by Thales Alenia Space, Konnect VHTS will lift-off from Kourou on the 7th of september 2022, aboard an Ariane 5 rocket.

EHP is very proud to see its thermal control products flying on this satellite, enabling Thales Alenia Space to build always greater and more powerful spacecraft.

This is the most powerful telecommunications satellite ever built in Europe.

This outstanding satellite, which measures 9 meters high (a 3-storey building!) and weighs 6.5 tons, will provide very high speed internet services across Europe, particularly for the existing “white spots” where no or little coverage is available today.
