SES signs capacity deal with Libyan group
Luxembourg, March 13, 2014
SES, a leading satellite operator, said it has signed a capacity deal with Alruya, a leading system integrator and VSAT operator based in Libya, to deliver connectivity to oil and gas fields in the country.
As per the deal, Alruya will utilise the capacity on SES’s NSS-7 satellite at 20 degrees West to provide highspeed internet access and voice over IP services over its VSAT network to its corporate customers’ offsite oil and gas locations in Libya.
"We are pleased to have found a new partner in SES, which has enabled us to provide
seamless connectivity to our customers," said Murad Tantush, the CEO of Alruya.
"Not only is SES’s NSS-7 coverage over Libya optimal, but also the professional SES team has made it easy for us to ramp up and double our capacity in the last few months," he stated.
Hussein Oteifa, the general manager (Middle East) at SES said: “In a vast country such as Libya, which has harsh terrain and limited infrastructure, satellite is seen as the most reliable form of connectivity - and demand for data connectivity is on the increase."
"We are honoured that Alruya has decided to work with us and we will continue to work closely with them to understand their needs and provide them the capacity they need to grow their expanding business," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
