NAHEMA and Safran agree NH90 engine support package for two more countries

26th June 2020 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Safran Helicopter Engines has signed a support contract with the NATO Helicopter Management Agency (NAHEMA), covering 276 engines for the NH90 helicopter.

The engines are owned by German defence procurement agency BAAINBw in Germany and its Norwegian counterpart NDMA.

The RTM322 engines will be covered by the Safran Global Support Package under NAHEMA management.

In 2017, Safran Helicopter Engines and NAHEMA agreed a support programme for RTM322 engines installed on NH90s operated by the French armed forces, the Belgian army and navy, and the armed forces of the Netherlands.

Under the latest framework agreement with NAHEMA, engines on NH90s operated by the German army and navy, as well as the Royal Norwegian Air Force, will be supported.

Giorgio Gomma, general manager of NAHEMA, said: ‘The Global Support Package and its philosophy as a service-by-the-hour contract, based on an availability commitment for the supported engines, represents a further step in the direction of unifying in-service support of [the] NH90 community.’
