AMMROC Makes Maiden Aircraft Delivery from MRO Facility

AMMROC, which specialises in military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services in the region, recently made its maiden delivery of the first C-130 aircraft from its new state-of-the-art depot in Al Ain.
 
The aircraft underwent a Programmed Depot Maintenance (PDM) to increase its capability by extending the lifecycle. This is the first of many PDMs scheduled to take place at this facility.
 
The company is set to deliver nose-to-tail advanced MRO services, and has the capability to modify and upgrade multiple aircraft types. 
The AMMROC facility can support more than 35 different aircraft types, both fixed and rotary wing, and offers one of the region’s largest military and civil MRO hangar capacities — spanning an area of 36,500 sq. m. 
 
It is also the only certified Lockheed Martin Service Centre for C-130 aircraft in the region, and is at the forefront of aircraft PDM and integrated fleet sustainment services.
 
AMMROC had inducted a CN235 and an A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft in March 2020, marking the launch of the 1-square-kilometre operations facility.
 
S. Khalid Al Breiki, President of Mission Support at EDGE and Chairman of AMMROC, elaborated: “AMMROC is leveraging its engineering excellence and cutting-edge solutions to establish new regional benchmarks for military operations. The delivery of the first C-130 aircraft from our state-of-the-art facility highlights our capacity to meet the dynamic needs of our customers as we strengthen our credentials as a leading MRO innovation hub.”
 
Al Breiki insists that the facility is testament to AMMROC’s vision to be the leading regional centre of excellence that provides aircraft sustainment solutions in MRO and upgrade services. “Progressing on the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, we look forward to building on our STEM initiatives and creating a highly skilled local workforce that takes the national aerospace and defence industry to new heights.”
 
Black Hawk Depot
AMMROC’s MRO hub serves as a dedicated Black Hawk depot facility that provides nose-to-tail MRO capabilities, inclusive of rotors and transmissions, blades, engines, components and aircraft sub-systems.
 
It incorporates four multi-purpose hangars, over 30 back shops and a specialised environmentally controlled strip/paint facility.
 
AMMROC provides industry-leading MRO services and integrated logistics support for the military and civil aviation sectors. 
 
With superlative facilities, innovative partnerships, and a highly qualified workforce, AMMROC is currently one of the world’s only third-party MRO service providers capable of managing a fleet-wide Performance Based Logistics programme.
