Collins Aerospace expands the10-year On-Site Support agreement with Chinese aircraft maintainer Ameco for Air China’s fleet. The agreement will add support for Collins’ Integrated Drive Generator (IDG) and other generators for multiple aircraft platforms, including the B787, A320neo, A350 and ARJ21. With this expanded contract, Collins will extend its onsite inventory management services to all of Ameco’s IDG and generator capabilities.

Collins’ IDG provides primary electric power for the aircraft electrical system by converting variable engine input speed to a constant output speed, thus enabling the generator portion of the IDG to produce alternating current at a constant frequency.

With the expanded agreement, Collins’ global aftermarket supply chain team will provide onsite inventory management, offer predictive parts forecast, manage the availability and distribution of parts and provide 24/7 technical support. As the original equipment manufacturer, Collins will leverage its deep understanding of its products and its commitment to quality customer service to help Air China optimize fleet performance.

“This agreement will streamline Ameco’s supply chain operations by applying cutting-edge technology and inventory support to guarantee piece part availability and reduce repair turnaround time, thus helping Air China improve operational efficiency,” said Mike Yue, regional director, China Aftermarket for Collins Aerospace. “Collins is dedicated to providing world-class service to our customers in China, and we’re pleased to continue building on our longstanding relationship with Ameco and Air China.”

ZHU Xiao, Chief Marketing Officer at Ameco, said, “The sound cooperation with Collins Aerospace in the past has given us the confidence to bring our cooperation to a new level. This expanded agreement builds upon a more than 10-year relationship between the two companies. Working together with Collins Aerospace, we hope to provide our customers with MRO services with higher quality and a shorter repair cycle.”

Earlier this year, Collins also expanded its support agreement for avionics with Ameco onboard all of Air China’s Boeing and Airbus aircraft, and added support for sensors and fire protection equipment.
