EPI signs support contract for TP400 engines powering Malaysia's A400M military aircraft
 

March 27, 2017: Europrop International GmbH (EPI) has signed an In-Service Support (ISS) agreement with the Malaysian government for the TP400 turboprop engines powering the Royal Malaysian Air Force's A400M military transport aircraft, at the 2017 Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA). The agreement was signed by Christophe Bruneau, President of EPI, and Dato' Sri Abdul Rahim Mohamad Radzi, Secretary General at the Malaysian Ministry of Defense.

This contract follows a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) signed on March 21 by EPI and Global Turbine Asia (GTA), a Malaysian joint venture with Safran that provides maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for helicopter and airplane engines.

EPI and GTA provide support services for the TP400 engines' fleet powering the Royal Malaysian Air Force's four A400M airlifters. The first phase of the contract runs until the end of October 2017, leading to the second phase, when GTA will become the prime contractor for these support services.

Under the terms of the agreement, EPI and GTA will provide local support services. GTA's Subang facility already deploys a Customer Support Representative (CSR), Field Support Representatives (FSR) and Logistics Support Representatives (LSR) to ensure that the Royal Malaysian Air Force continues to receive timely support for their engines.

"We are delighted to continue to build a successful partnership with GTA, which enables us to provide local support for the TP400 engine fleet," said Christophe Bruneau, President of EPI.

EPI will support GTA to obtain Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certification from EPI, as well as certifications from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA-Part145) and the Malaysian airworthiness authority DGTA.
