S7 Technics Unveils Facility for Embraer Aircraft Heat and Sound Insulation Repairs

Our Bureau - : Nov 25, 2021 - : 2:58 am

Russian MRO provider S7 Technics has launched a new facility within its cabin interior repair shop for the maintenance and repair of thermal acoustic insulation mats. The facility is at the company’s maintenance base at Moscow Domodedovo Airport (DME).

The new shop, the first of its kind in Russia, gives operators of Embraer aircraft in Russia and wider CIS have an option of repairing these components locally. Technicians at S7 Technics have undergone training with Safran, and the Russian provider has successfully completed all internal and external audits prior to winning EASA approval for this newest addition to its capability list.

Thermal acoustic insulation (TAI) mats are located between fuselage skins and cabin’s interior panels, as well as inside doors, in baggage holds and beneath the floor in lavatories.

Inspection of TAI is part of heavy maintenance checks, such as C-check, and if some defects are found, a repair or replacement bulletin is issued. Since these operations were earlier unavailable in Russia, aircraft operators had to order new kits from producers abroad. Now, with the new facility, the costs of maintenance will decrease several-fold.

“Several aircraft are scheduled for their C-checks soon, and we expect to be busy” said Tatyana Kharitonova, interior repair shop manager for S7 Technics. “The new capability will be in high demand with all Embraer aircraft operators in the region.

S7 Technics is currently approved to repair TAI mats on all Embraer aircraft. The company will soon expand its TAI capabilities to include Airbus aircraft.
