July 2, 2011 – Ariane Flight VA203

Arianespace’s Ariane 5 mission with the ASTRA 1N and BSAT-3c/JCSAT-110R satellite will be delayed to allow a valve replacement for the launcher’s cryogenic core stage, which follows an anomaly that interrupted the final countdown yesterday in French Guiana.

To replace this valve – which did not function properly – Ariane 5 will be transferred from the Spaceport’s ELA-3 launch zone back to the Final Assembly Building.

Arianespace estimates that the valve’s replacement, along with the associated operations, will require approximately 20 days, with a new launch date to be announced shortly.

During the current operations, the Ariane 5 and its two satellite payloads are being maintained in fully safe conditions.
