SINGAPORE --- Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering) today announced that its Aerospace sector secured new contracts worth about S$590m in the third quarter (3Q) of 2018 for services ranging from airframe, engine and component maintenance to engine wash.
New multi-year contracts
A number of the contracts secured in 3Q2018 are multi-year agreements, including a 4-year ATR 72 landing gear overhaul agreement from an Asian airline, a 5-year contract extension to maintain the PW4000 thrust reversers and inlets of an European operator’s A300-600 fleet and heavy maintenance agreements from American freight operators.
Redeliveries and capabilities development
The Aerospace sector redelivered a total of 208 aircraft for airframe heavy maintenance and modification work in 3Q2018. Additionally, a total of 11,992 components, 35 landing gears and 45 engines were processed, while 2,644 engine washes were conducted.
The sector continued to expand its aftermarket services in nacelle systems by successfully setting up MRO capabilities for A320’s V2500 and CFM56-5B nacelles.
