Cologne / Ashgabat, August 2018. CETel has signed a cooperation agreement with Turkmen hemrasy CJSC, a closed joint stock company and the national satellite operator in Turkmenistan. The aim of this cooperation is to mutually create a business environment that helps customers to precede with their communications requirements on fixed satellite services in the region. Türkmen hemrasy satellite TurkmenAlem 52.0°E covers not only the territory of Turkmenistan but Central Asia, Iran, Turkey, North Africa and most part of Europe. It carries 38 Ku-Band transponders and is specifically designed for satellite communications and TV broadcasting. The east and west beam provide major opportunities for companies operating in this region.
With the cooperation signed, the two companies bundle their competences and customers can easily proceed with their projects, allowing effortless management of end-to-end connections, including backhaul, regulatory requirements, and local field support. Customers will mutually benefit from having a strong satellite operator in the region with ideal coverage, paired with a WTA full-certified Teleport located in the heart of Germany.
“We are very happy to sign this cooperation and our team will put full efforts in bringing life into this agreement. The region of Turkmenistan is of particular interest as it carries vast amounts of mineral resources. Also, Turkmenistan with the desert of Karakum, which covers 80% of the country, necessitates rural communications based on satellite,” explained Guido Neumann, Managing Director of CETel.
Batyr Orazdurdyyev, Acting Director of Türkmen hemrasy added “This cooperation will further strengthen our powerful coverage in the region by offering CETel’s customer base attractive payload for their projects, especially in the mineral resource sector. Further to that, in CETel we have found an industry-known Teleport awarded for excellence multiple times, and are looking forward to realize many large scale projects for multi-national customers in our coverage.”
