Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1

Located on New Zealand's Mahia Peninsula, Launch Complex 1 is set to enable the highest frequency of space launches in history.

The facility will be the primary site for launches of Rocket Labs Electron vehicle, designed to lift a 150 kg payload to a 500 km sun-synchronous orbit.

New Zealands remote island location and low volume of marine and air traffic create ideal conditions for frequent launch opportunities.

In addition, launches from the site can access a uniquely wide range of orbital inclinations - from 39 degrees through sun-synchronous.
