SSAMC Inaugurates New MRO Facility, Adds LEAP Capability

Mar 29,2018


Sichuan Services Aero Engine Maintenance Company (SSAMC), the joint venture between Air China and CFM International (CFM), has inaugurated a new 43,880 -square meter facility, expanding its maintenance, repair, and overhaul capability for CFM56 and LEAP engines to 300 engines per year.


The expanded capacity of the new facility will further enhance SSAMCs capability to provide world-class MRO services to customers from China and around the world, said Chai Weixi, senior vice president of Air China and chairman of the board of SSAMC.


The brand-new facility, located in the Chengdu Free Trade Zone, benefits from the latest standards in terms of equipment and lay out, is the largest CFM engine maintenance facility in Asia.


I am honored to be part of this celebration, said Olivier Andris, CEO of CFM parent company Safran Aircraft Engines.  SSAMC has grown to be a highly valuable asset for our partner, Air China, and for Safran Aircraft Engines, as we support our CFM customers in Asia and around the world.  The quality of the work and turnaround times this facility has achieved prepares it well for future LEAP MRO capability as this engine continues the fastest fleet ramp-up in aviation history,


SSAMC was officially established as a 60/40 joint venture between Air China and CFM in 2010.  Since then, the company has serviced more than 1,000 CFM56-3, CFM56-5B, and CFM56-7 engines for more than 40 customers throughout China and Asia.  SSAMC successfully combines Air Chinas extensive expertise with that of CFM to create a truly world-class maintenance facility that has been certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, and the European Aviation Safety Agency.


The increase of Chinese aero engine MRO industry needs to stand on the shoulder of giants, needs to be open to the international leading companies and seek double-win working pattern through cooperation. Civil Aircraft Operation Support Technology International Forum 2018 is the annual aero support event in China. The forum is aimed to accelerate the process of the Chinese aero engine development, sharing the technical breakthrough and barriers in the aero engine MRO phase.
