India’s high power communication satellite GSAT-30 launched successfully Friday from a French territory in South America, said Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).

The satellite GSAT-30 would provide high-quality telecommunications, television and broadcasting services. It was injected by European space consortium Arianespace’s Ariane 5 vehicle.

The 3,357-kg communication satellite went off from the Ariane Launch Complex in Kourou in northeastern coast of South America.

Upon the launching at 2.35 am IST Isro tweeted, “#GSAT-30 successfully separated from the upper stage of #Ariane5 #VA251.”

Arianespace CEO Stphane Isral wrote on Twitter, “A strong start to 2020 as #Ariane5 successfully deploys its two satellite passengers EUTELSAT KONNECT and GSAT-30 into geostationary transfer orbit! I appreciate the trust from the two customers on this mission: @Eutelsat_SA and @ISRO #VA251 #MissiontoSuccess.”

Isro’s U R Rao Satellite Centre Director P Kunhikrishnan called the launching as an excellent start to 2020 to the Indian space organization.
