ADAT quick to the mark for independent GEnx MRO

Posted 22 November 2013 · 1 Comment

Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) has received UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) approval for its newly established GEnx engine quick turn operation, the world's first independent MRO quick turn operation for this engine type.


The GEnx is General Electric's (GE) latest turbofan engine, built to be the ‘workhorse engine’ of the 21st century for medium-capacity, long-range aircraft.

Abdul Khaliq Saeed, ADAT’s president, said: “The ADAT team built the GEnx facility from the ground up and made it ready for certification in record time. This included training, tooling validation, building the facility and installing a made-to-order 18-tonne crane. We worked in close coordination with GE from planning a world-class facility to training our people at the GE and ADAT premises, to ensure the smooth and successful activation of this world class platform.”

The GEnx team consists of avionics specialists and licensed engineers with years of experience and proven expertise in engine maintenance, overhaul and repair. The operation at ADAT received the UAE GCAA approval in September 2013, and is now proceeding to secure the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approvals, as well as further expanding the capability of the facility.

Today’s announcement follows the news earlier this week that GE Aviation and Mubadala have signed a Joint Venture with a view to further enhancing the GEnx MRO relationship, including studies to explore opportunities such as the establishment of a regional GEnx logistics centre in Abu Dhabi and a direct investment by GE in the existing GEnx engine shop.

Muhammad Al-Lamadani, senior sales executive and vice president for GE International said: “GE selected ADAT as a GEnx quick turn MRO provider due to its demonstrated MRO expertise. The GEnx engine is the fastest selling engine for GE, and ADAT’s operation will ensure customers who operate GEnx engines in the region have access to an OEM-authorised resource for quick turn MRO needs.”
