Following the contract signed between Eurocopter and the Brazilian Army and Navy for 50 EC 725 helicopters to be delivered between 2010 and 2016, Turbomeca do Brasil will be the partner of the local military forces, providing notably support for the Makila 2A engines.

The Makila 2A engines, powering the twin engine EC 725 helicopter, will be assembled, tested and overhauled at Turbomeca do Brasil, Rio de Janeiro.
The first Makila 2A engine, assembled and tested in Turbomeca do Brasil, is intended to be delivered in June 2010.

“This contract represents a major achievement for Turbomeca do Brasil, consolidating our position as the preferred partner of the Brazilian military forces and demonstrating the value of the local support provided since 26 years.”, said François Haas, general manager of Turbomeca do Brasil.

Turbomeca do Brasil, provides, together with Turbomeca Sud Americana based at Montevideo, the support services for 850 engines operated in Brazil and South America.

Created in 2002, the Turbomeca do Brasil repair center overhauls and repairs the Arrius, Arriel and Makila engines that equip the majority of the Eurocopter Ecureuil, EC 135, Super Puma and Dauphin helicopters.
