RCC "Progress" expects to resume launches under the OneWeb program in the IV quarter


The enterprise is ready to carry out about 10 launch campaigns by the end of 2020
MOSCOW, August 20. / TASS /. The Progress Rocket and Space Center (Samara) expects that launches under the OneWeb program will be resumed in the fourth quarter of this year. This was reported to TASS in the press service of the enterprise.
"<...> We look forward to the resumption of launches under the OneWeb program in the IV quarter of this year", - noted in the RCC.
The press service emphasized that the enterprise is ready to carry out about 10 launch campaigns by the end of 2020. "According to the OneWeb program, the exact number of launches of Soyuz-2 carrier rockets will be determined by the customer," the company explained.
OneWeb currently has 74 satellites in low stationary orbit and plans to launch hundreds of others. However, in March, the British company was forced to file for bankruptcy and reorganization after it failed to receive about $ 2 billion from a group of investors, including Japanese SoftBank.
In April, OneWeb asked the UK government for a £ 500 million (about $ 645 million) loan as part of a broader $ 2.2 billion funding package from private investors. However, London turned down the company, and has now decided to invest in its share capital to establish control over OneWeb.
