A letter of intent has been signed between MTU Maintenance Lease Services and Advanced Ground Systems Engineering (AGSE) to cooperate as equal partners to offer engine transport stands for lease starting in January 2024.
AGSE will produce and supply transport stands for a variety of engine models, and the leasing branch of MTU Maintenance will handle all commercial leasing aspects of these stands.
The engine models will include, but not limited to, CFM International’s LEAP and CFM56, International Aero Engines’ V2500, and Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engines, in addition to widebody models such as GE Aerospace’s GE90-110/115B, GEnx-1B and CF6-80, and Engine Alliance’s GP7000.
Patrick Biebel, managing director at MTU Maintenance Lease Services, a subsidiary of MTU Aero Engines AG specialising in engine leasing and asset management, said: “It’s all about a one-stop-shop principle where MTU Maintenance has the right setup to support its customers with any engine-related issue.
“This stand leasing service enables us to be even more responsive to our customers across the globe.”
Eric Henderson, vice president of strategy and business development at AGSE, says MTU Maintenance shares the essential values his company seeks in a partner: an unrelenting focus on product quality and customer service.
“With its global leasing infrastructure and MRO network support, MTU Maintenance Lease Services can deliver the right stand to the right location for our customers.
“We see an increasing demand for more flexible solutions, so it makes sense to partner with a global player such as MTU Maintenance to expand our services further and provide an engine stand leasing solution.”
