Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) has announced a two-year agreement with an option for extension between its commercial aerospace (CA) business and French-aerospace engine manufacturer, Safran Aircraft Engines, to provide module repair offload support for the CFM leading edge aviation propulsion (LEAP) 1A and LEAP-1B engines.

Under the agreement, Safran Aircraft Engines will offload module repair work on the high pressure turbine (HPT) rotor assembly and stage two HPT nozzle assembly of the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines to ST Engineering. 

In addition to the module repair offload agreement, ST Engineering will reinforce its support to Safran Aircraft Engines in LEAP-1B engines maintenance offload services.

The collaboration addresses the growing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) demand for LEAP engines as operators ramp up their flying operations. 

Other ongoing offload support ST Engineering is providing for Safran Aircraft Engines includes maintenance for the CFM56-5B, CFM56-7B and LEAP-1A engines.

Nicolas Potier, VP support and services at Safran Aircraft Engines, says: “Expanding our partnership with ST Engineering is part of our strategy to develop our global capacities for LEAP MRO activities,”

He adds: “The LEAP fleet has experienced the fastest ramp-up in commercial aviation industry with a growing fleet of over 3,300 aircraft, which means that we will need to rely on our valued MRO partners as part of our growing network to keep providing our customers with the highest CFM standards.”

“We are well positioned to address the rising demand for quick-turn and performance restoration shop visits for LEAP engines, having made the investments in equipment such as shroud grinding machinery, and built up a strong team of skilled technicians. We will continue to ramp up our LEAP engine capabilities and look forward to providing even greater support to Safran Aircraft Engines and airlines so that they can maximise their operations,” concludes Tay Eng Guan, SVP, engine services, ST Engineering.

As at 3.40 pm, shares in ST Engineering are trading six cents higher or 1.41% up at $4.32.
