Vesconite contributes to a communication satellite launch
February 7, 2023
Vesconite Bearings, through its supply of marine rudder bearings to the MN Colibri charter vessel in June, is proud to be associated with an exciting communication satellite launch that took place in September 2022. The MN Colibri has historically transported launcher components, including communications satellites, for various heavy-lift space launch vehicles, and outfitted with the Vesconite rudder bearings allowed it to transport the Eutelsat Konnect VHTS satellite, which is regarded as an important addition to global telecommunications infrastructure.
Andries Keyser built his first steam locomotive at the age of 19 and completed the project five-years later. It was named after his mother, Doreen and is based on a Beira Railways Lawley design from way back in 1895.
