FIA2016: OGMA & Saab Sign Long-Term MRO Service Agreement

OGMA and Saab have entered into a long-term MRO Service agreement. Under the agreement, OGMA will provide repair and overhaul services at its Alverca facility in Portugal, as well as on-site support to Saab and Saab customers. The initial scope covers RR AE2100A/P engines and components for SAAB 2000 commercial and defence operators.

OGMA is using its long-running experience of AE2100 overhaul capabilities to provide comprehensive ‘Reliability On Wing’ (ROW) support designed to achieve engine availability at competitive rates. OGMA has overhauled more than 750 RR AE2100 turbo-prop engines of different variants to date under its Rolls-Royce Authorized Maintenance Center contract

It is a starting point for a long and fruitful relationship benefiting both parties," Ronnie Candemark, VP Saab Procurement, said. "Saab is confident in OGMA’s capability to support Saab customers.”

Nelson Vaz, VP OGMA MRO Services, concluded by saying that, “we are pleased to formalise our relationship with Saab joining their network supporting the SAAB 2000 operation. Our philosophy is to be part of the team rather than just a service provider.”
