Total 276 RTM322 Under Safran GSP Programme
Safran Helicopter Engines has signed a support contract with the NATO Helicopter Management Agency (NAHEMA), to support 276 NH90 engines owned by Germany and Norway. The RTM322 engines will be covered by Safran’s Global Support Package (GSP) under NAHEMA management.
Giorgio Gomma, General Manager of NAHEMA, explained that “[…] the Global Support Package and its philosophy as a service-by-the-hour contract based on an availability commitment for the supported engines represents a further step in the direction of unifying in-service support of [the] NH90 community.”
Olivier Le Merrer, Safran Helicopter Engines EVP Support and Services, added “[…] this new contract is founded on the excellent service experience we have developed with the German and Norwegian armed forces. It also marks a major milestone in our partnership with NAHEMA and European NH90 users […] We are committed to offering world-class support to all European armed forces.”
In 2017, Safran Helicopter Engines and NAHEMA agreed a support programme protecting RTM322 engines installed on NH90s operated by the armed forces of Belgium, France and the Netherlands.
GSP is part of EngineLife Services, Safran’s range of solutions for helicopter engine operators. Under a GSP, the customer receives a commitment to engine availability. Other benefits include budget stability, a fixed price per engine flying hour and a technical partnership with the OEM.
