Turbine Services & Solutions (TS&S) has received certification from China’s aviation regulatory body to service IAE V2500 engines. The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) approval allows the Abu Dhabi-based MRO to maintain these engines that power Airbus A320ceo aircraft, among others, for Chinese registered aircraft.
TS&S says it holds the largest number of aviation authority registrations in the Middle East and North Africa. It became an IAE-approved V2500 overhaul center in 2013.
In addition to the CAAC approval, it has also received aviation regulatory certification from Nepal, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Brazil, Chile and Argentina—which aids its goal of increasing international clients.
As an example, earlier in the year, TS&S won contracts to maintain V2500 engines that power the A320s operated by Latam Airlines Group, AtlasGlobal, Yemenia Airways and Asiana Airlines.
TS&S, wholly owned by Mubadala, provides MRO for engines powering Airbus A310, A320, A330, A310 and Boeing 747, 767, 777 and 787 aircraft— specializing in the V2500, Rolls-Royce Trent 700 and GE Aviation and GEnx engines. It holds partnerships with those engine OEMs, which allow it to perform repairs and subcontract work from the OEMs, as well as its airline customers.
Its business has grown threefold in the last four years.
