Europe's Spaceport: industrial service contract opportunities

on 11 May 2022

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) is inviting European space and non-space companies to get involved in the industrial service contracts of the French space agency, CNES, in its operational and maintenance activities at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.

Europe’s Spaceport, also known as the Guiana Space Centre, guarantees independent, reliable and competitive access to space for Europe. The upcoming arrival of ESA’s two new launch vehicles, Ariane 6 and Vega-C, will further increase performance and versatility supported by a modernised launch range.

The renewal of industrial service contracts in force since 2018 are now published on the esa-star portal for a competitive tendering process which is foreseen to be carried out in the second half of 2022.

The current launch range operational and maintenance activities, as well as the companies currently performing them, can be found here.

An interested organisation should register with ESA via the esa-star portal to demonstrate their further involvement and participation to the bid.
