Joint venture between Sabena technics and AFI KLM E&M finalize a partnership agreement with aerospace OEM around heat exchanger maintenance and overhaul.

Singapore Component Solutions (SCS), a joint venture between Sabena technics & AFI KLM E&M dedicated to component support for ATR and Airbus A320 aircraft fleets, and Liebherr-Aerospace, a leading supplier of systems for the aviation industry, finalized the signature of a cooperation agreement at the MRO Asia-Pacific event. Under the terms of the agreement, Liebherr-Aerospace will assist and support SCS in developing industrial capabilities dedicated to the A320 heat exchangers manufactured by Liebherr. SCS will thus join the Liebherr worldwide network for heat exchanger maintenance.

Combining OEM and MRO expertise
Through this partnership agreement, SCS will be qualified to carry out maintenance work on Liebherr-designed heat exchangers – more precisely from cleaning up to repairs, excluding renovation and reconstruction. In exchange, the Air France-KLM Group will make use of Liebherr services for work requiring the “recoring” (renovation, reconstruction) of defective heat exchangers.
In combining the know-how and expertise of a world leader in aircraft maintenance and those of a major OEM, AFI KLM E&M, via SCS its joint venture with Sabena technics, and Liebherr are now able to offer high level dedicated heat exchanger support solutions in terms of TAT and cost, for the benefit of their client airlines.

“We are very pleased to join forces with a major player in the global multi-product aircraft maintenance market. This agreement sets out the framework of a win-win partnership for both parties that will allow Liebherr in particular to further develop its repair network in Asia.”

said Charles Thoyer-Rozat, Vice President Customer Services Liebherr-Aerospace.

“AFI KLM E&M is delighted to be working with Liebherr, an internationally-reputed OEM whose products equip a large number of aircraft fleets. Liebherr’s experience and know-how will be most valuable to the Group, and to SCS in particular, for developing our industrial capabilities – a major objective of ours as we continually strive to better and more extensively satisfy our customers’ needs.”

added Anne Brachet, Executive Vice President AIR FRANCE KLM Engineering & Maintenance.
