QUETZSAT-1 is a Mexican satellite to provide services to EchoStar Corp. of Englewood, Colo., and EchoStar's Dish Mexico affiliate. EchoStar has leased the entire capacity of QuetzSat-1—32 Ku-band transponders with 20 kilowatts of power—to EchoStar for 10 years to provide broadcasts in Mexico, the United States and Central America. The satellite is thus fully leased, and will begin generating revenue for SES, as soon as it completes in-orbit testing. It is a key component of SES's major expansion program currently under way. The 5,600-kilogram QuetzSat-1 was built by Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, Calif., and was financed through a direct loan from the U.S. Export-Import Bank. The loan, valued at US$171.5 million, paid for the satellite's construction and for a portion of its insurance coverage, arranged by Aon of Chicago.
