It still looks like a back up satellite will be required here to fulfil the transponder contracts assigned to 5 west,
The move by Mediasat to 9B @ 9 east may only be temporary measure,
Eutelsat Quantum was built for this specific purpose to back up or replace a damaged satellite.

Eutelsat’s mitigation plan for the lost capacity also includes optimizing the capacity on Eutelsat 5 West B, and shifting customers to satellites at other orbital locations. The company estimates it will incur up to 10 million euros in antenna repointing costs as it redirects customer dishes to link with other satellites.

So in short due to a broken solar array its no longer possible to pick a signal for MIS channels since they are already all moved to 9 East on a tight enuff Italian Beam so its basically mission accomplished plus a year or two work to Re-align dishes without the need for Eutelsat Quantum ??
10 million euros wasted i am pretty sure would have went a long,long way to doing the job properly instead of sticking a plaster on the situation and hoping it will hold : )

Mediasat will remain on 5 West A for some time 0.2 inclined orbit as it is going to take a while to relocate all the customers dishes to 9 East,

I will not be surprised if 7A moves to 5 West for a couple of years this has to be a cheaper & better solution to the current problem.

Mediasat will remain on 5 West A for some time 0.2 inclined orbit this will buy enough time for 7A to move to 5 west for a couple of years this has to be a cheaper & better solution to the current problem.

As it is going to take a while to relocate all the customers dishes to 9 East I cannot see this happening in the short term.
