HSC is all set to maintain Ansat engines
Helicopter Service Company is poised to perform maintenance of power units, provide mobile repair teams and engine maintenance training for the PW207K that powers the Ansat helicopter.

The Helicopter Service Company of Russian Helicopters, a part of Rostec, has become a designated maintenance facility for PW207K Ansat helicopter engines in Russia and the CIS countries. The agreement was signed with Pratt & Whitney during the Dubai Airshow. HSC is responsible for aftermarket support of Russian-made helicopters, as it is a subsidiary of Russian Helicopters.

The documents are valid for five years and can be extended for five more years. HSC will perform the maintenance of power units, provide mobile repair teams and engine maintenance training. In addition, to ensure timely and quality service, HSC will form an inventory of new spare parts from Pratt & Whitney.

“Listening to the needs of our customers and bringing them the right solutions is of the utmost importance to Pratt & Whitney,” says P&W VP of customer service Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam. “With the rapid growth of civil helicopters in Russia, we want to ensure our customers have more local and personalised service. Helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) are a growing priority in the region. This is one way we are supporting HEMS and other critical missions.”

“Pratt & Whitney has been supporting the development of the Ansat project for many years; to date, about 70 such rotorcraft have been delivered to customers. The agreement we signed today will bring the maintenance of this fleet to a new level and lay the foundation for expanded supply to the Russian and the CIS markets,” comments Andrey Boginsky, director general of Russian Helicopters holding company.

HSC will support customers in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and will offer engine maintenance training, line maintenance and mobile repair team (MRT) services. HSC will also keep an inventory of new spare parts from Pratt & Whitney for line maintenance to best support customers.
