ST Engineering has reported that its Commercial Aerospace business has secured CFM56-7B engine maintenance contracts from two established airlines based in Asia. Under these contracts, ST Engineering will carry out heavy maintenance of CFM56-7B engines for the two airlines at its engine MRO facilities in Singapore and Xiamen, China.
Tay Eng Guan, SVP/GM of Engine Services at ST Engineering, said, “As flying activities continue to climb back up towards the pre-pandemic level, maintenance needs for the CFM56-7B engine are expected to rise in the next few years. These two airlines have been ST Engineering’s longstanding customers for over ten years and we are pleased to continue our support for their engine maintenance needs and to help see through their recovery and growth.”
ST Engineering will be providing new engine solutions to better support customers by expanding capabilities into LEAP engines which power new-generation aircraft. The group started offering quick-turnaround services for the LEAP-1B engine at its Singapore facility in early 2022 and will provide the same service at its Xiamen facility this year. ST Engineering will soon also provide solutions for the LEAP-1A engine, starting with quick-turnaround services in 1H 2023.
