The American company Globalstar is a mobile satellite services company that offers almost global coverage using low-orbit satellites.
To further enhance the coverage in Europe, Merko will build a ground station for Globalstar in Saarde Rural Municipality. The ground station will include three 6-metre antennas communicating with satellites and the equipment necessary for their operation.
Merko will prepare the site and build the control facility, the foundations for the antennas and the station infrastructure, including connecting the power supply for the equipment to be installed.
On 1 July 2021, Merko Ehitus Eesti acquired a stake in Connecto Eesti, and the Merko electrical construction business line merged with Connecto. Acting jointly under the Connecto brand makes it possible for us to offer a significantly broader range of services – in addition to the design, construction and maintenance of low, medium and high voltage electricity networks, Connecto also operates in the field of telecommunications and gas networks.
