In response to a burgeoning demand for the long-term conservation of aircraft engines – with many Coronavirus crisis-hit airlines having to prematurely return aircraft or leased engines to lessors – S7 Technics, Russia’s largest independent maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider, has launched a dedicated comprehensive re-delivery service for aircraft engines.

With the company specialising in the re-delivery of CFM56-3/-5B/-7B engines to ensure their further proper storage during the current hiatus, Kirill Khilevich, sales director of S7 Technics’ aircraft engine repair services, reveals that this sector is now experiencing quite high demand, and several requests have already been received from airlines for complex servicing for the re-delivery of their aircraft engines.

“Normally, this kind of work is performed on those engines removed abroad. Closure of the lease contract cannot [usually] be confirmed until the engine is fully equipped, inspected and declared as serviceable. Our advantage is that we do all the necessary work before returning the engine to its lessor. This saves time, money and also allows [customers] to close their lease contracts and stop paying the rental fees,” Khilevich states.

Each serviced engine comes with an EASA Form 1 certificate, which allows the next operator to re-install the engine and continue its operation. For the lessor this means it can more quickly find a new client for an engine and continue to receive lease payments.

For this project, all the relevant equipment and tooling has been purchased and installed at S7 Technics’ engine shops at Moscow and Mineralnye Vody, where up to three engine-shop specialists are required to prepare the engine for lease return. It takes about 3-6 days to complete the full range of works, the company says.

S7 Technics also reveals that it is prepared to send its specialists to perform engine re-delivery servicing at a customer’s own facilities.
