Inauguration of Chilean Satellite Ground Station Punta Arenas

As part of the expansion of the Global Ground Network, KSAT has established a new station in Punta Arenas, Chile. Last week the station was officially inaugurated by Norway´s Ambassador to Chile, Mrs Beate Stirø.

The establishment of the CSGSP station in Punta Arenas is an extremely important addition to KSAT´s Global Network. Strategically located on the far south tip of the American continent, it completes the global coverage footprint. The station in Punta Arenas also operates perfectly in concert with the KSAT Antarctic Station, Troll, located at 72 degrees South. They complement each other and in combination, they provide a unique capacity in the southern hemisphere that is unparalleled in the market said Dr. Martin Krynitz, Director of Business Development, KSAT in his welcoming speech.
