Russian Helicopters, which designs and manufactures civil and military rotorcraft, and France’s helicopter engine maker Turbomeca signed an agreement on Wednesday to service and repair Turbomeca engines in Russia.
Russian Helicopters will provide “engine support services in Russia for the engines manufactured by Turbomeca and used in Russian Helicopters’ new light-class Ka-226T and medium twin Ka-62 models operated by Russian military and government customers.”
The Russian company will also repair Turbomeca engines in its Urals subsidiary under a license agreement.
“This agreement reflects the high quality of the technical support … It also means that we can offer even better service to our customers across the world through enhanced after-sales care,” Russian Helicopters CEO Dmitry Petrov said.
“This general agreement on support cooperation lays the groundwork for joint aftersales service of Russian rotorcraft fitted with Turbomeca engines. Once this agreement being operational, it will allow to ensure the best service for state of the art Turbomeca engines used in Russia,” Turbomeca Chairman and CEO Olivier Andries was quoted in the statement as saying.
