Honeywell, Mubadala Aero ink MRO pact
Farnborough, July 22, 2010
Mubadala Aerospace and Honeywell have expanded their existing agreement to form a Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) strategic partnership.
The deal will grant special rights and licenses to Mubadala’s Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) and SR Technics as authorised service providers for Honeywell.
Under the agreement, Mubadala's two units will become service providers for Honeywell mechanical components and avionics on various in-service aircraft, including the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 when the platforms come into service.
Honeywell will provide materials, training and technical support to ADAT and SR Technics to provide full service component maintenance services including asset management to airline operators.
As part of this partnership SR Technics will utilise its flagship Integrated Component Solution offering, to support customers operating Honeywell equipment. The Integrated Component Solution offering shall also be extended to ADAT.
The agreement builds on existing relationships with Honeywell for provision of technical and materials support for aircraft components at SR Technics and aircraft auxiliary power units at Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies.
“Honeywell is confident that Mubadala Aerospace’s extensive and growing MRO capability and expertise, geographic footprint, and customer relationships will ensure that operators of Honeywell’s equipment will receive seamless support for its customers,” said Tim Mahoney, CEO of Honeywell Aerospace.
“Honeywell Aerospace is a world-leading manufacturer which provides materials and components for both Boeing and Airbus aircrafts and this marks an important expansion to our global MRO capabilities,” added Homaid Al Shemmari, executive director of Mubadala Aerospace.-TradeArabia News Service
