NewSat Bagged $AU7.5 Million in Satellite Contracts
The satellite provider bagged $AU7.5 million in contracts from oil, mining, gas and construction and public sectors.
- (1888PressRelease) February 01, 2012 - NewSat, Australia's independent satellite communications provider, won new clients from oil, mining, gas, public and construction sectors. The recent deals, which involve the provision of satellite and teleport services, are worth $AU7.5 million.
The new clients are based in Australasia and the Middle East, including the north-west shelf Wheatstone Project and Gorgon Projects off the Western Australia coast, an unnamed engineering and construction company and US government staff in the Middle East.
The Middle East deal further boosts the reputation of the company as a military satellite partner. The Australian Department of Defence is currently using NewSat's teleports in Perth and Adelaide. These facilities have duly accredited secure global access points, using certified classified networks to allow for the transmission of confidential data to government clients.
"This is outstanding revenue growth for the first half of the year, setting us up for a fantastic 2012," said the company's CEO and founder, Adrian Ballintine. The new $AU7.5 million billion worth of contracts will further improve the prospects of the company's Jabiru-1 satellite project. Its launch will be a ground-breaking achievement for NewSat, transforming the teleport provider into a global independent satellite operator capable of serving more government institutions and industrial clients.
