Aviation Equipment holding belonging to Rostekhnologii will invest 30 million dollars into the aircraft component overhaul distribution system. The first center is to open this November in Sheremetyevo airport.
"This is the first large-scale project in Russia for foreign aircraft component distribution", underlines CEO of Rostekhnologii, Sergey Chemezov, "It will improve the service we are rendering to our partner air carriers. The centers we plan to set up are expected to substantially facilitate Russian aviation companies in terms of reducing the overhaul and repair time and diminish the demurrage."
Similar center constructions are projected in Russian regional centers. Investment outlay will amount to 30 million dollars. Foreign partners will contribute innovative technologies for effective logistic system management and component distribution.
Currently component delivery for foreign aircrafts takes from 1 to 3 days as they are to be shipped from European warehouses. "New distributive center branching out will reduce the delivery time to 6 hours", reported CEO of Aviation Equipment, Maksim Kuzyuk. "This will reduce costs connected with demurrage. For example, the 1 day demurrage of single-aisle aircraft like Boeing 737 exceeds 35 thousand dollars."
"We are convinced that Aviation Equipment Concern has the potential required for effective component distribution system setting up and that we can provide our partners with high technologies for successful development," says Vice President, Sales, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, Rick Andersen.
At the first stage we are to arrange the Boeing aircraft component distribution. At the next stage the centers are to deliver spare parts for the most common Russian and foreign aircrafts.
According to Airclaims, 23 Russian air carriers use over 300 Boeing airplanes. Aviation repair and overhaul market turnaround in Russia is estimated to be 2 billion dollars per year.
