S7 Technics Holding, Russia’s largest independent maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services provider, has launched a new line station at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, Russia’s biggest, which currently serves more than 300,000 aircraft movements a year.

The new station is managed by S7 Technics’ subsidiary S 7 ENGINEERING and is the first located outside of its two main bases at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport and at Mineralnye Vody. The latest station is fully approved for the provision of line maintenance, non-destructive testing (NDT) and structural repairs on the Airbus A320 family of aircraft, as well as for Boeing 737NGs and Russian-built Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional jets.

“The highly qualified engineering and technical staff of this line station, working in four shifts at Sheremetyevo to provide 24/7 service, is ready to render full support to customers, and is supplied with the complete range of equipment and tools necessary for servicing aircraft on any call within S 7 ENGINEERING’s capability list,” reveals Vladislav Kotenko, S 7 ENGINEERING’s line station management director. “We offer round-the-clock logistics support, including a portable store of spare parts and components, etc,” he adds.

Several Russian charter carriers, which base their aircraft at Sheremetyevo, have become the new line station’s first customers.

Three line maintenance stations within S7 Technics Holding are run by its other subsidiary, Novosibirsk’s Tolmachevo-based Sibir Technics. They are located at the large airports of Siberia and the Far East region, at Irkutsk, Yakutsk and Vladivostok. Sheremetyevo is the fourth MRO location for the specialist company, and the first in the European region of Russia.

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: S 7 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, Sukhoi Superjet 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.
