Hispasat extended its European and American maritime market partnership with solutions provider Syntelix for another two years, the Spanish telecommunications satellite operator announced July 2.

Syntelix said it would use more Hispasat capacity from the H30W-6 satellite, located in the 30 degrees West orbital position, in order to expand its connectivity offering to the European and American regions. The agreement also includes a plan to cooperatively build and develop specialized distribution channels in maritime connectivity services in several countries in Latin America, including Argentina, Peru, Paraguay, and Chile, and possibly more countries.

Syntelix said that the contract extension was driven by an increase in regional demand from fishing vessels, coastal merchant, freight ferries, and yachts.

“The mobility market, and in particular the maritime sector, will continue growing at a good pace in upcoming years, and is undoubtedly a priority market for Hispasat,” said Hispasat Strategic Sales Manager Diego Lopez. “Collaboration agreements like the one we are renewing and expanding with Syntelix are essential in order to offer high-quality communications services in our areas of coverage.”
