AMES sets its sights on future expansion in engine nacelle repair services

January 21, 2013 - Aerostructures Middle East Services (AMES) will further expand its jet engine nacelle repair capabilities as this joint venture of Safran’s Aircelle and Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance builds on two successful years of operation from its technical base in Dubai.

AMES supports key airlines in the Middle East, the Gulf Arab states and South Asia – with the company uniquely positioned to accommodate the region’s very large nacelles and thrust reversers for Engine Alliance GP7200s that power Airbus A380s, and General Electric’s GE90 engines used on Boeing 777s.

Also in AMES’ core business portfolio are nacelle and thrust reverser services for Rolls-Royce Trent 700 and 500 engines that equip Airbus A330s and A340s, as well as well as for the A340 and A320 family’s CFM International CFM56 powerplants.

In addition to its in-shop repair and overhaul at Dubai, AMES has successfully developed on-wing support activities that involve the deployment of teams into the field.

As a next step, the company is preparing to implement service capabilities for CFM56 nacelles on Boeing 737s, along with a broadening of its on-wing support for various engine nacelle types.

“We forecast double-digit expansion of our business in the coming years as AMES builds its services and responds to Middle East airline growth,” explained François Vitti and Alexandre Mule, the General Managers at AMES.

Headquartered at Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone, AMES provides a unique commercial and industrial offer that is backed by Aircelle’s capabilities as a leading original equipment manufacturer of small, medium and large engine nacelles; and the expertise of Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance as a top provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services.
