EVRY (BNS): Arianespace has announced that it will launch the ABS-2 communications satellite for an Asian satellite operator in 2013.

The satellite will be launched by an Ariane 5 rocket from the European spaceport in French Guiana in 2013, the European space company said.

The satellite will weigh over 6,000 kg. at launch and will be placed in geostationary orbit at 75 degrees East where ABS-1, ABS-1A and ABS-1B are currently located.
