Es’hailSat and Nilesat have signed an MoU to work more closely together. The partnership brings Qatar’s and Egypt’s biggest satellite companies together to work on a variety of projects.

Nilesat operates multiple Geostationary Orbit (GEO) satellites, all of which are stationed at 7 degrees West. This partnership aims to benefit a diverse set of customers across applications such as video broadcasting, enterprise connectivity, telecommunications, and other digital services. The two companies extend their cooperation with each other into areas such as training, pricing, and collaborating with each other as preferred partners.

This partnership marks a significant development in the MENA satellite industry. By combining expertise and resources, Nilesat and Es’hailSat are well-positioned to address the evolving needs of the region’s customers and contribute to its economic growth,” Sameh Katta, president and CEO of Nilesat, said in a statement.
