ST Engineering's Commercial Aerospace business has deepened its support for Safran Aircraft Engines by entering into a two-year agreement, with an option for extension, to provide module repair offload support for the CFM -1A and LEAP-1B engines.

Under the agreement, Aircraft Engines will offload module repair work on the high-pressure turbine (HPT) rotor assembly and stage 2 HPT nozzle assembly of the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines to ST Engineering. This addresses the growing MRO demand for LEAP engines as operators ramp up their flying operations. ST Engineering's offload support augments Safran Aircraft Engines' MRO capacity and optimises the turnaround time of engine shop visits for customers.

In addition to the module repair offload agreement, ST Engineering will reinforce its support to Safran Aircraft Engines in LEAP-1B engine maintenance offload services.

ongoing offload support ST Engineering provides for Safran Aircraft Engines includes maintenance for the -5B, CFM56-7B, and LEAP-1A engines, underscoring the strong trust and partnership between the two companies.

“Expanding our partnership with ST Engineering is part of our strategy to develop our global capacities for LEAP MRO activities,” said Nicolas Potier, VP Support & Services at Safran Aircraft Engines. “The LEAP fleet has experienced the fastest ramp-up in the commercial aviation industry with a growing fleet of over 3,300 aircraft, which means that we will need to rely on our valued MRO partners as part of our growing network to keep providing our customers with the highest CFM standards.”

ST Engineering was the first independent MRO provider in Asia to join the LEAP open MRO ecosystem under the CFM branded service agreement in 2023. Its Commercial Aerospace business currently has LEAP-1B engine testing capabilities and is progressively adding more LEAP engine services at its Singapore facility. This will enable the business to soon provide the full suite of MRO services for both LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines, including LEAP-1A engine testing, which is expected to be ready in 3Q2024.
