S7 SPACE OFFER WILL HELP KAZAKHSTAN SPACE PROGRAM

LV Zenit was offered to Kazakhstan by S7 Space company to accelerate implementation of a space program and to perform the first commercial launch not in far 2025-2026 but, perhaps, already in 2019. All technical and organizational capabilities for this purpose are available.

"I emphasize that LV Zenit is created and it flies with use of Ukrainian and Russian enterprises, Kazakhstan Cosmodrome and sea platform capacity. In fact, it is universal and international launch vehicle. Its production and delivery are performed by request of private company. I hope for efficiency of private project management", Nurlan Aselkan (an expert and Editor-in-Chief of "Space Research and Technologies" magazine) reported.

"In May 2018 during KADEX-2018 exhibition the offer on cooperation surfaced from S7 Space Company to our Kazkosmos. S7 Space is a private structure, which purchased SRC Sea Launch in property some time ago. To both S7 Space and us, complex use of Zenit will be profitable both from the sea and by means of Baikonur launch on the right flank. There is another way. S7 Space undertakes launch vehicles production organization through its private structure by delivery of necessary components to the plant in Dnipropetrovsk and through subsequent delivery of a launch vehicle to Baikonur. It will allow to settle almost solved political problem", the expert said.
