TS&S signs on Asiana Airlines

TS&S secures three major maintenance contracts

FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 20, 2018

Abu Dhabi-based Turbine Services & Solutions (TS&S),  a leading maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider for gas turbines and driven equipment, has announced engine maintenance contracts with three major international airlines.

Wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company, TS&S has added Atlasglobal, Yemen Airways and Asiana to its network of international customers, the company said on the sidelines of Farnborough International Airshow 2018

Commenting on the announcement, Mansoor Janahi, acting chief executive officer at TS&S, said: “Rapid advances in technology and a strong forecasted growth in air travel are bringing business prospects to the forefront. The expansion of our global footprint underscores our priority in identifying these diverse opportunities as we direct our expertise and resources to focus on strategic, emerging and promising aviation markets. In line with our long-term growth strategy, TS&S is pursuing opportunities that will expand its presence across several continents.

“It is a great honour to be selected to work alongside some of the fastest growing airlines in the world,” Janahi added. “These agreements are a testament to the industry-leading capabilities of TS&S’ innovative MRO solutions and strong track record of timely deliveries. Together with our partners, TS&S continues to enhance its offerings and create value for its clients, tailoring solutions to meet their dynamic needs,” he added.

TS&S has seen a threefold increase in business volume in the last four years, and has serviced more than 300 engines for both local and international customers. The MRO services on the V2500 engines that power the Airbus A320 fleets flown by Atlasglobal, Yemen Airways, and Asiana will be conducted at the TS&S world-class MRO complex in Abu Dhabi. The facility is approved by International Aero Engines (IAE) as an overhaul base, and remains the only V2500 engine repair facility in the Middle East and North Africa region.

In addition to its MRO services, TS&S acts independently as a third-party market supplier, as well as a sub-contractor, to IAE’s global original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers. Through the support of nearly 300 specialists of 30 different nationalities, TS&S has inducted over 175 V2500 engines since 2014.

As part of its core MRO functions, TS&S also specialises in overhauling the Rolls-Royce Trent 700 that powers the Airbus A330, as well as the GEnx engines that are carried on the Boeing B747 and B787 aircraft. The business is also embracing digitalisation to ensure that operations remain as efficient as possible, having already integrated Voice Recognition and Smart Connect Assembly technology throughout its operations. - TradeArabia News Service
