ST Engineering today announced that its Commercial Aerospace business has set up quick-turn services for the LEAP-1B engine by CFM International (CFM), a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines, at the Group’s aerospace facility in Singapore. The Group targets to expand its capability in LEAP-1B engine to full MRO services by end-2023.
Jeffrey Lam, Commercial Aerospace President at ST Engineering, said, “ST Engineering has a longstanding relationship with CFM as a licensed service centre for its CFM56-5B and -7B engines. The capability set-up for the LEAP-1B engine starting with quick-turn services builds on that relationship and expands our MRO offerings to better support customers’ fleet using CFM engines.”
“We are grateful for our longstanding relationship, and extend our sincerest congratulations to the ST Engineering team in recognition of this great milestone to provide quick-turn MRO services to our LEAP customers,” said Gaël Méheust, CFM president and CEO.
ST Engineering is showcasing its MRO and other aerospace capabilities at the Aviation cluster of the ST Engineering Pavilion (G01) from 15 – 18 February at Singapore Airshow 2022.
