Aircraft storage, disassembly, and transition services provider, ecube, has announced it has reached 400 aircraft disassemblies.
The activity started in January 2023 and was carried out on an Airbus A319 at ecube’s St Athan facility.
ecube states that ahead of the project starting, the aircraft was stored on site and went through numerous maintenance activities upon arrival, including engine inspections, MPA runs, and removal.
Lee McConnellogue, chief executive of ecube said: “We are delighted to be celebrating our 400th aircraft disassembly; to have had aircraft disassembled across three global locations contributing to this is a proud moment to really showcase how far we’ve come.
“It is important to remember that in addition to this achievement, we are seeing exponential growth across our storage and transition capabilities, all of which support these disassemblies taking place.
“Thanks of course goes to all our customers, all the airlines, lessors, and parts companies that trust us to deliver every project.”
Kevin VanDenBerg, executive vice president -c ommercial and asset management of ACS who delivered the aircraft to ecube, said: “ACS has partnered with ecube for many years, and we are proud to have delivered their 400th aircraft.
“Our longstanding partnership with ecube reflects ACS’ commitment to reducing our footprint and we look forward to our partnership for many more years ahead.”
