StandardAero has received a $36 million delivery order from
the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) for overhaul of
Taiwanese T56 Engine and Quick Engine Change (QEC). The award was
made to StandardAero's Government & Military sector based in
San Antonio, Texas.
"The Taiwanese T56 engine MRO contract further bolsters
StandardAero's expertise in repairing and overhauling C-130
powerplants," said Rob Mionis, StandardAero President and Chief
As part of a Foreign Military Sales agreement between Taiwan and
the U.S. Navy, Taiwan has agreed to purchase twelve P-3's plus
eight spare engines. Under a multiple delivery order contract,
NAVAIR held a competition for the Taiwanese T56 engine and QEC
workload, and determined that the proposal from StandardAero
provided the best value for the U.S. Government. The workload,
which includes 56 engines and QEC Assemblies, will be performed
over the next four years.
"We are pleases pleased with the NAVAIR's decision to select
StandardAero to perform the Taiwan engine requirements under the
contract," said Harinder Grewal, Senior Vice President, Government
& Military of StandardAero. "Today's announcement is a
first-hand testimonial to the cost and quality of our services and
the confidence the U.S. Government has in StandardAero."
