Also present at the Spaceport are Ariane 5 components for Flight VA236, which were delivered earlier this month by one of two sea-going roll-on/roll-off ships used for the transportation of launch vehicles from Europe to French Guiana. The launch of this Ariane 5 is scheduled for the second half of March with two telecommunications satellites that will be deployed into geostationary transfer orbit.

Aren't the satellites for the VA-236 mission SGDC 1 and Koreasat 7?

Now that we have confirmation that the second payload is Koreasat 7, I think the thread title can be updated.

everything is proceeding according to plan. There will be less processing news regarding SGDC since it is a military sat and the picture above of SGDC is showing only the civilian antenna side of the Spacecraft.

There also seems to be very little coverage or promotion of Koreasat-7.
