The joint venture between AFI KLM E&M and Sabena technics has finalised a partnership agreement with Liebherr-Aerospace on heat exchanger maintenance.
Singapore Component Solutions (SCS) — the joint venture between AFI KLM E&M and Sabena technics dedicated to component support for ATR and Airbus A320 aircraft fleets — and Liebherr-Aerospace have finalised 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.
Through this partnership agreement, SCS will be qualified to carry out maintenance work on Liebherr-designed heat exchangers, including cleaning up and repairs, but 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.
The two partners say the agreement will enable them to offer dedicated heat exchanger support solutions that are optimised in terms of turnaround time and cost.
