EPI signs TP400 engine support contract

28th March 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Europrop International (EPI) and the Malaysian Ministry of Defence have signed a contract for the support of TP400 turboprop engines powering the Royal Malaysian Air Force's (RMAF) A400M transport aircraft fleet, the company announced on 27 March.

The contract follows a Memorandum of Agreement signed on 21 March by EPI and Global Turbine Asia (GTA), a Malaysian joint venture with Safran, which provides maintenance, repair and overhaul services for helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft engines.

EPI was created by four European aero-engine companies: Industria de Turbo Propulsores, MTU Aero Engines, Rolls-Royce and Safran Aircraft Engines to manage the TP400 engine programme. Together with GTA, EPI will provide support services for the TP400 engines powering the RMAF's four A400M aircraft until the first phase of the contract ends in October 2017. At that point, GTA will become the prime contractor for these support services.

GTA will provide local support services, and EPI will support GTA to obtain Approved Maintenance Organization certification from EPI, as well as certifications from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA-Part145) and the Malaysian airworthiness authority.
