AAR selected by AMMROC to support design of new military MRO facility in the UAE
AAR has been selected by AMMROC (Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center), the Abu Dhabi-based Joint Venture between Mubadala Development Company, Sikorsky and Lockheed Martin, to support the design, outfitting and integration of key areas of AMMROC’s state-of-the-art facility in Al Ain, UAE. The new facility will be one of the largest dedicated military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) centers and will be an anchor tenant at Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park (Nibras), the free-zone project being jointly developed by Mubadala and Abu Dhabi Airports Company to support the establishment of a sustainable aerospace hub in Abu Dhabi. AMMROC was formed by Mubadala, the Abu Dhabi-based investment and development company, Sikorsky, and Lockheed Martin, to serve as a leading provider of MRO services to the UAE Armed Forces, as well as other military providers across South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. AMMROC’s new facility is being built in Al Ain, the second largest city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The approximately 1.2 million-ft² facility will support more than 40 different types of military aircraft. AMMROC contracted AAR to design support areas including hangars, work areas, and machine and special processes shops for this military maintenance center.
