“Nominal Mission Lifetime” means, with respect to the Express AM4R Satellite, (based upon a Proton phase 4 performance) a period of 15 (fifteen) years after completion of the Final or Provisional Acceptance of the Satellite in orbit (whichever occurs first).

8K82KM Proton-M (93545) arrived at Baikonur on February 28. After passing the required customs procedures the train with the launcher stages, fairing and additional equipment was transported to the assembly and testing building 92A-50.

No signs of the satellite at Baikonur? It's only 3.5 weeks till the April 6 launch date.... (or is that going to slip?)

Noticed a similar tender for Ekspress-AM7? Looks like they are paying International Launch Services (ILS) to support this launch?

$931,200

http://www.zakupki.gov.ru/223/purchase/public/purchase/info/documents.html?purchaseId=931084&&purchaseMethodType=ep

There are four documents; these two appear relevant:-

Express-AM4R has been delivered to Baikonur: http://www.khrunichev.ru/main.php?id=1&nid=3034

The delay of the launch from early April was apparently due to delays in the repair of pad 200/39's ground electrical umbilical unit 8U259, which if you remember caused one Proton rocket to lift off half-a-second early on its ultimately 30 seconds of looping flight last July from pad 81/24. This was also the reason the launch of Turksat 4A was moved to pad 81/24.
