ST Engineering secured new contracts worth $443 million in the first quarter of 2016, for projects ranging from airframe maintenance and cabin interiors, to engine wash and component repair and overhaul. The first quarter value took in Elbe Flugzeugwerke’s new orders for the first time, following the completion of the additional equity interest in the Dresden-based company in February this year.


Included in the first quarter contracts are line and heavy airframe maintenance agreements for various customers, as well as cabin interior modifications for both commercial airlines and VIP customers. For component support, the aerospace sector secured several ATR landing gear contracts from customers in the Asia Pacific region. It has, at the same time, secured a long-term contract to support a European customer’s Bombardier Q400 components. Multiple contracts have also been sealed with customers in Asia Pacific, Europe and the US, for EcoPower engine wash services.


The aerospace sector redelivered a total of 524 aircraft for airframe maintenance and modification work in the first quarter of this year. This included cabin interiors modifications for both VIP aircraft and commercial airliners, an Airbus A380 cabin overhaul for a European customer, as well as Virgin Galactic’s Boeing 747-400, upon completion of a series of D checks. Additionally, a total of 9,742 components, 28 landing gears and 30 engines were processed, while 1,548 engine washes were conducted for both commercial and military customers.


On aircraft capability, the aerospace sector’s airframe facility in Guangzhou, China, received maintenance organisational approval from the Maldives Civil Aviation Authority for Boeing 767 aircraft, extending the facility’s rapidly expanding range of maintenance capabilities.


Spotlighting freighter conversions, ST Aerospace received the Supplemental Type Certificates from both the CAAC and EASA for the 15-pallet 757-200SF freighter conversion, on top of a similar certification obtained from the FAA in 2015.


On component MRO, the aerospace sector continued to add new capabilities to support the Boeing 787 operators. The newly added capabilities cover electrical systems and nacelle components. Separately, on engine MRO, ST Aerospace continues to build its in-house engine accessory testing capabilities in Xiamen, China.
