ST Aerospace seals $38 million deal for B757 conversion

Singapore Technologies Aerospace Ltd (ST Aerospace) announced that its US facility, ST Mobile Aerospace Engineering (MAE), has been awarded a contract by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence. The contract, worth US$38m (approximately S$65m), involves a cargo conversion and avionics upgrade programme for two of the Royal New Zealand Air Force’s (RNZAF) Boeing 757-200 aircraft. Targeting to induct the first aircraft in October 2006, MAE will convert the aircraft from an all passenger arrangement to a multi-role configuration that allows the carriage of passenger, freight, mixed passenger-freight, Very-Important-Persons (VIPs) and Aero-Medical Evacuation. Completion of the programme is expected to take about two years.
