Safran awards engine test services contract to SIA Engineering

Safran Aircraft Engines (SAE) has awarded a 10-year engine MRO contract to SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC).

SIAEC will provide engine test services for SAE’s CFM LEAP-1A and -1B engines at its engine test facility, which will be upgraded with the latest data acquisition and control system from Safran Test Cells.

SIAEC’s chief executive officer Ng Chin Hwee said: “The addition of the engine test capabilities for CFM LEAP-1A and -1B engines is a step forward in the growth of our engine MRO services under our Engine Services Division (ESD), which was established earlier this year.

“Through ESD, SIAEC is well-poised to increase value to our OEM partners and airline customers, as well as enhance our integration across the engine MRO value chain.”

The new agreement will supplement SIAEC’s existing engine maintenance agreement with SAE which includes engine on-site support, quick turn and boroscope inspection services for the CFM LEAP-1A and -1B engines.

SAE’s chief executive officer Jean-Paul Alary added: “We are delighted to support SIAEC in the development of its capabilities for the LEAP engine. It will enhance the expertise that SIAEC is bringing since the LEAP’s entry into service in 2016 to better optimise our customer operations while reducing the environmental footprint.”
