Marshall to support Indonesian C-130H transfer

15th August 2013 - 16:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Marshall Aerospace Australia will provide engineering support services to the programme that will see the Indonesian Ministry of Defence take ownership of four of the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF’s) C-130H aircraft. The company will perform the work under contract to Qantas Defence Services (QDS).

Marshall has been supporting QDS’ maintenance of the RAAF’s C-130H fleet since May 2000. During this time Marshall has performed a variety of MRO and deeper maintenance activities, including structural and avionics repair design, modification and ILS technical support.

The company will draw on this experience for the Indonesian Transfer Program, to provide structural engineering support services, with avionics design and other systems support available. The majority of Marshall’s work will be performed in Australia. 

Steve Fitz-Gerald, CEO, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said: ‘Indonesia is the 32nd country in which Marshall has provided support to the C-130 and this particular contract with QDS is another recent example of us adding value through the provision of specialist design support for the platform. We look forward to continuing our role in Australia and supporting QDS and the Australian government in preparing the four aircraft for their duties in Indonesia.

‘Our selection by QDS to support the Indonesian Transfer Program is further testament to Marshall’s engineering excellence and capabilities, it builds on our long-standing relationship with QDS and is part of the strategic expansion of our international footprint.’
