Sanad, the global aerospace engineering and leasing solutions company owned by Mubadala, and Triumph have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on the provision of next-generation engine MRO capabilities in the UAE.
Through the relationship, the companies will collaborate to provide MRO solutions for multiple engine types for operators across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.
The partnership would advance Sanad’s service offerings beyond engine overhauls while simultaneously providing Triumph with an immediate footprint in the Middle East & Africa. The two companies will establish a “Center of Excellence” in Abu Dhabi, to offer their MRO capabilities for next generation engines to global customers. The parties also intend to jointly provide MRO solutions for V2500, CFM and GE90 engine accessory repairs and overhauls.
“Aside from offering a mature business environment and strategic geographical proximity at the intersection of Europe, Asia and Africa, Abu Dhabi is very active and well-known as a global aerospace hub,” said Jim Berberet, President of Triumph Product Support. ” Sanad, a well-established leader in global MRO services, also boasts significant in-market skillsets to support the strategic relationship.”
“As part of our ongoing expansion efforts across the Middle East and emerging African markets, our strategic alliance with Triumph will amplify Sanad’s ability to offer best-in-class MRO solutions to major industry players across two continents – and beyond,” said Mansoor Janahi, Group CEO of Sanad.
