Safran signs NH90 engine support contract

14th December 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Safran Helicopter Engines has signed a contract to support engines powering French, Belgian and Netherlands NH90 helicopters with the NATO Helicopter Management Agency (NAHEMA). The ten-year contract was announced on 12 December.

The Global Support Package contract covers support for RTM322-powered NH90s operated by the French Army Light Aviation, the French Navy, the Belgian Army and Navy, and the Royal Netherlands armed forces.

In total 130 aircraft will be supported over the ten year period.

The GSP package will ensure the availability of engines during search and rescue and military operations, both at home and on deployment. The package guarantees turboshaft availability at a fixed price per engine flying hour, for customer budget control during the contract period.

Fortunato di Marzio, NAHEMA general manager, said: ‘This GSP will allow the French, the Belgian and the Dutch NH90 operators to benefit from a very effective engine-support for their RTM322 engines, especially during their operational tasks. The contract is the result of a very good and fruitful partnership between NAHEMA and Safran Helicopter Engines.’
