UEC carries out licensing for engine repair in Egypt

Klimov, being a part of the United Engine Corporation (UEC), has finished the procedure to license repair facilities for helicopter engines in Egypt. Implementing this project will enable the repair of Russian engines installed on the Mi-8/17 and Mi-24 helicopters, in accordance with the developer’s requirements, thereby improving operational safety in the North African region.

The licensed repair of the TV3-117 engines is based at ABECO (Arab British Engine Company). There are currently more than 100 Russian helicopter engines in operation in Egypt. They are used in the Egyptian Air Force, as well as broad civilian application.

“One of UEC’s priorities is creating systems for aftersales servicing of engines in operation in various regions around the world. We are interested in a systematic and comprehensive approach to market demands for servicing,” said UEC general director Vladislav Masalov. “Implementing this project in Egypt will allow us to expand the areas covered by our repair program in North Africa and improve the quality of helicopter engine servicing.”

The contract with ABECO was signed in the interests of the Egyptian Air Force in 2010. Following an inspection of the partner’s production capacity, the Russian company confirmed that the Egyptian side possessed the necessary equipment, quality control, and qualified personnel, which are required to carry out major repairs on engines. Under the project, Klimov will supply spare parts needed for engine repair, and also full oversight supervision.

More than 85% of the leading companies specializing in the development, mass production, and aftersales servicing of gas turbine technology are integrated into UEC, as well as key companies which are selectors of the field.
