Vallair, provider of integrated support for mature aircraft, engines and major components, is undertaking a comprehensive teardown of a 23-year-old Airbus 330 airframe on behalf of Danish spare components specialist, CORAX.

Previously operated by Hong Kong Airlines, disassembly is 80% complete and when finished, Vallair claims that over 1,500 parts will have been removed as used serviceable material (USM).

Vallair says that its logistics team is currently processing, listing, and crating all parts for assessment prior to repair and sale by CORAX.

Morten Espenhein, president of CORAX, said: “Realising the value of mature assets relies on fast and efficient disassembly practices that protect each part throughout the inspection and evaluation process.

“Our global customer base enjoys unlimited access to one of the fastest growing aircraft component inventories in the world.

“We have a commitment to innovation and expansion and that means sourcing both narrow and wide-body aircraft for teardown and managing the streamlined transition to USM in a cost-effective way.”

François Biarneix, operations director at Vallair MRO in Châteauroux, said: “We are recognised as a leading independent provider of teardown services and have an extensive network for sourcing and disposal of assets.

“Our teardown facility in Châteauroux, France, employs skilled and certified mechanics to identify, store and manage parts properly for maximum efficiency and asset value realisation.

“We work in partnership with parts brokers, investors, lessors and MROs.”
