MOSCOW, June 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The Sea Launch Consortium has a full order portfolio, Energia Corporation President Vitaly Lopota said after the successful space launch on Friday.
He hopes that the corporation would be making four to five space launches per year by 2014. There will be no less than two launches this year, the first of them in August. The corporation also has an order for orbiting Intelsat 21 satellite. “I would rather not speak about other launches now. That is commercial information, and clients are sometimes unwilling to make public announcements,” he said.
“Sea Launch is an illustrative example of the capacities of Russian spacecraft, including Energia products,” Lopota said.
A Zenit-3SL rocket carrying Intelsat 19 blasted off the floating platform in the Pacific Ocean at 9:23 a.m. Moscow time on Friday. The DM-SL booster developed by Energia brought the satellite to the orbit.
