On 25 November Hylas-1, Intelsat 17 and the launcher carrying them were transferred on a huge 2000-tonne mobile launch platform to the Ariane Launch Complex No.3. A powerful diesel truck pulled the platform along the 2-km long road to the launch site, sticking to a maximum speed limit of 5 km/h. The entire journey took about half an hour.
