HAECO Composite Structures (Jinjiang) Co. Ltd. (“HAECO Composite Services”), a member of the HAECO Group, has added capability for preventive maintenance inspections and associated repairs on fan stator modules for GE90 engines on Boeing 777 aircraft.
Established in 2009 and located in Jinjiang, Fujian province, Mainland China, HAECO Composite Services is a dedicated composite maintenance, repair and overhaul (“MRO”) facility for aircraft nacelles, radomes, and aerostructures. GE Aviation is the GE90 engine’s original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”).
The scope of work includes ultrasonic inspections of composite panels and other metallic components of the fan stator module. Preventive maintenance inspections of the fan stator modules for GE90-100/115 engines are mandated by the OEM to be performed upon specified engines once they reach 50,000 flight hours. This new capability has been deployed by HAECO Composite Services on a number of Asian customers’ fan cases.
