Safran Nacelles has signed a five-year agreement with TARMAC Aerosave to deliver support for nacelles on aircraft undergoing maintenance on TARMAC Aerosave sites in France (Toulouse and Tarbes) and Spain (Teruel). TARMAC Aerosave offers innovative solutions in aircraft and engine storage, transition, maintenance and recycling.
The nacelle specialist will deliver its OEM expertise to TARMAC Aerosave to support its maintenance services to aircraft operators and airframers on the Airbus A380, A330ceo, A330neo and A320neo powered by CFM International LEAP-1A turbofan engines.
TARMAC Aerosave will have access to spare parts and large nacelle components (air inlet, fan cowls, thrust reversers and exhaust systems). The company will receive engineering services for repair solutions alongside MRO3 services on the Safran Nacelles site in Pont Audemer, France, or directly on wing at TARMAC Aerosave locations. For its part, TARMAC Aerosave brings its expertise in the end-of-life management of aircraft parts. This close cooperation with Safran Nacelles will enable easier identification and optimised recycling of materials, thereby contributing to the eco-design process of future nacelles.
Alexandre Brun, President of TARMAC Aerosave noted: “By working together with Safran Nacelles, we are sure of delivering the highest quality of maintenance services on the nacelles of our customers. What is more, the proximity of our sites will enable swift and cost-effective services.”
Safran Nacelles’ repair services and spares resources are part of the company’s NacelleLifeTM support programme, which ensures responsive, cost effective and high-quality services that keep airliners in operational condition while minimizing costs
