Groundbreaking of GAMECO landing gear overhaul base in Qingyuan
On December 8th, 2014, a groundbreaking ceremony for the new landing gear overhaul facility of GAMECO was held at its Qingyuan branch in Yingfu Industrial Park, Taiping County, Qingxin District, Qingyuan. GAMECO plans to invest over CNY 200m on its Qingyuan Landing Gear Overhaul Base with the main facility to be located in Yingfu and the plating and machining center close by in Longwan. The project land in Yingfu takes up 45 Mus with a total construction area of 10,818 m² for Phase I, including shops to disassemble, clean, repair, assemble and test the landing gear as well as supporting facilities. The design capacity is more than 120 sets of landing gears, which can be overhauled every year. After establishing capabilities for machining and plating in 2015, GAMECO Landing Gear Overhaul Base will become one of only few comprehensive one-stop landing gear overhaul centers in China for aircraft like B737, B777, A320 and A330.
