Airbus Helicopters reaffirms its confidence in Safran Engineering Services
Airbus Helicopters has recently renewed all Safran Engineering Services Vitrolles and Donauwörth activities. This is an important milestone for the company, which also foresees an extension of its field of activity and thus new development opportunities.
“This is a real sign of confidence and customer satisfaction. This renewal shows that we have been able to demonstrate our technical capabilities and our day-to-day commitment to Airbus Helicopters, our long-standing customer,” says Adrien Trocherie, director of the Vitrolles site.
This renewal, planned for at least 3 years, covers all of Airbus Helicopters' design engineering office activities and more specifically electrical activities: architecture, definition, design, installation and support; mechanical activities: design, aerodynamic and vibratory calculations, monitoring of mechanical equipment; and systems activities: monitoring of the development of electrical/electronic equipment, safety and environmental qualification. These activities are managed from the Vitrolles branch but also by a German team based in Donauwörth. “The challenge will be to continue to demonstrate to our customer that we are able to work transnationally, with greater flexibility and synergies between our German and French teams,” explains Adrien Trocherie.
This renewal was also an opportunity for Safran Engineering Services to broaden its field of activity, “particularly in mechanical calculations and the monitoring of new equipment, and we are also going to relaunch our structural design activities. The start-up on these new areas will be gradual, but our customer has informed us that the load will increase in 2022. This is good news for the teams who have been able to do an exemplary job over the years and have the right arguments in this tender phase,” concludes Adrien.
