S7 Technics is setting up a new shop for overhaul of CFM56 engines and Honeywell auxiliary power units (APU). This one-of-its-kind facility in Russia and the CIS will be located at the premises of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport. It will specialize on overhaul of the most popular engines operated by Russian airlines – CFM International’s CFM56 and Honeywell APUs.
S7 Technics’ Sheremetyevo facility will perform overhaul of CFM56-5B and -7B engines, which power the world’s most popular aircraft families – The Airbus A320ceo and the Boeing 737NG. S7 Technics’ specialists will carry out complete disassembly of the engines, clean parts and units, and inspect them for further repairs or replacement. After reassembling, engine performance will be checked on a test bench.
As a partner to Honeywell, S7 Technics will initially perform authorized repairs of APUs type 131-9А/B, installed on the same aircraft types. The new facility with the total floor area of 14,000 square meters will consist of two blocks – for engine and APU overhaul, wash lines, inspections, component repairs, parts warehouse and a test bench for testing APUs after repairs.
