Safran Helicopter Engines signs support-by-the-hour contract with ADAC Heliservice

Safran Helicopter Engines has signed a support-by-the-hour contract renewal with ADAC Heliservice for the engines powering ADAC Luftrettung and ANWB Medical Air Assistance H145 helicopter fleets. This SBH® contract covers in-service support and MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) for around 50 Arriel 2E engines. ADAC Heliservice, a subsidiary of the non-profit ADAC Luftrettung, is a leading German helicopter MRO company.

The contract will be managed by Safran Helicopter Engines Germany in Hamburg, which monitors and supports 300 helicopter operators in Germany, Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, for a total fleet of 2,000 engines.

"We are delighted to renew this partnership with ADAC Heliservice, which supports ADAC Luftrettung and ANWB Medical Air Assistance operations, leading actors in helicopter rescue and medical transport in Germany and Netherlands. This demonstrates the relevance of our SBH® model for these operators, who carry out particularly demanding missions", said Mathieu Albert, Director of Support and Services at Safran Helicopter Engines.

SBH® is Safran Helicopter Engines' maintenance-by-the-hour service. It provides visibility on engine operating costs and smoothes financial flows, while making scheduled and unscheduled maintenance operations more flexible. SBH® is integrated into a range of high value-added digital services such as Health Monitoring, Expert Link and Online SBH®. Today, 50% of Safran Helicopter Engines' engine flight hours are covered by the SBH® service.
