Including these orders, Boeing has awarded a total of eleven contracts under its long-term agreement with Saft signed in 2009 to produce Li-ion GEO satellite batteries. The contracts, along with associated support and management, represent more than $20m of satellite batteries. The seven satellites worth of battery packs will be delivered from mid-2014 to 2015.

Saft currently powers 75 GEO satellites in orbit using the company’s Li-ion technology.

The Boeing satellites in production will offer high-performance communications coverage in geosynchronous orbit (GEO) for their intended customers.
