Biman Bangladesh Airlines has issued a tender seeking MRO services for the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines that power its two Airbus A310-300s.
The Bangladeshi carrier says in the tender document that the selected firm will be responsible for the scheduled and unscheduled repair and/or overhaul of five engines, including a spare, for four years.
Bidders must be approved MRO firms capable of in-house repair and overhaul of the PW4000 engines, with certification either from the US Federal Aviation Administration, European Aviation Safety Administration or a local regulatory authority.
The bidders will also need to have experience repairing or overhauling a minimum of six engines over three years, five years' experience in repairing or overhauling aircraft gas turbine engines, and have a major in-house repair capability for the breakdown parts at piece part level. Firms without an in-house engine test cell with certified test capability will not be considered as capable.
The airline says that submissions from joint ventures, consortiums or associations will not be accepted.
Tender responses are due by 14 August,
