S7 Technics' aircraft engine repair shop at Domodedovo Airport has expanded its capabilities in CFM56-5B/7B MRO. The shop's technical and engineering staff has received approvals for complete disassembly and reassembly of these popular engines, which power Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737 aircraft.

The shop is now entitled to provide repairs of high and low pressure compressor and turbine units, replacement of combustion chambers, high pressure turbine nozzles and other units.

"We are now virtually limited to, basically, overhaul. Up until that level we can perform the entire range of works, and offer our customers such benefits as optimal costs and terms of visits," Alexey Starkov, head of S7 Technics' engine repair shop comments.

In this move to the next level in engine MRO S7 Technics was assisted by its long-time partner, Swiss SR Technics, one of the leading engine maintenance providers globally.

"One year into operations after launch in 2016 we realized that the demand for engine repair services in Russia and CIS market had surged. And there were some requests that were not covered by our capabilities. For instance, there were many requests for combustion chamber replacement or for works on the fan. So we asked SR Technics to help us grow in that direction. As a result we have acquired additional competences, allowing us to completely disassemble engines and rectify the defects," Alexey Starkov notes.

S7 Technics Holding’s facilities are certified by EASA, Bermuda DCA, the Russian Aviation Authority, and a number of other national authorities to carry out maintenance for different types of Boeing, Airbus, Embraer and Sukhoi Civil Aircraft airliners.

The company comprises two MRO subsidiaries: S7 ENGINEERING and Sibir Technics, which service aircraft at Moscow (DME), Novosibirsk (OVB) and MineralnyyeVody (MRV), as well as through several line outstations across Russia. S7 Technics Holding’s production facilities are certified under EASA, Bermudan, Russian and other countries’ aviation requirements to provide maintenance on Boeing, Airbus, SukhoiSuperjet 100, Embraer and Cessna aircraft.

The company’s scope of work includes heavy maintenance (up to and including D-Checks), engine hospital repairs, line maintenance, structural repairs, engineering services (including modification under EASA Part 21J and interior components manufacture under EASA Part 21 G), component repairs, aircraft painting services, and training services (under EASA Part 147 and Russian FAR-289).

The company aims for ongoing improvement of its products, partially supported by joint projects with OEMs.

The company delivers its services to Russian airlines (S7 Group, Aeroflot Group, UTair, Ural Airlines) and to carriers from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, providing its clients with over 100 heavy maintenance forms and over 1000 light maintenance forms per year.
