Safran Nacelles is all set to open a new MRO facility in Suzhou, China. The facility is currently being set up and operational in the second quarter of 2022. This facility will be located in the heart of the Suzhou Free Zone, one hour west of Shanghai. This strategic location simplifies the material import and export processes for customers in the Asia region.

Alain Berger, Safran Nacellesí» Vice President of Support and Services, commented í░I am very pleased to announce the upcoming opening of our repair station in Asia. Our customers in the region will benefit from timely, local support and services while reducing transport costs. The services offered range from preparation for entry-into-service to withdrawal of their aircraft from the operation. Safran Nacelles can support them at every stage of their fleetí»s life. The new repair station enhances our NacelleLife service offer even further.í▒

The new site also complements Safraní»s MRO network, covering Europe, the Middle East, the Indian peninsula, and the Americas. It will also be used as a storage base for significant nacelle components (air inlets, thrust reversers, exhaust, etc.) for the entire Asia region.

The site is equipped with a dedicated MRO workshop and highly qualified personnel to repair nacelles and Line Replaceable Units (LRU). The on-site engineers are mainly experts in repairing composite and metal aerostructures. They can also work on-wing, on aircraft operatorsí» sites and offer Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) guaranteed repair solutions.

Upon opening, the repair station will be certified by the Chinese (CAAC) and European (EASA) Air Authorities to repair nacelles and thrust reversers for the Airbus A330ceo A320neo aircraft equipped with CFM International LEAP-1 engines, and soon for the COMAC C919. The site teams are already supporting COMACí»s final assembly line to prepare the entry-into-service of their medium-haul airliner.
