MRO provider StandardAero is expanding its services in Winnipeg, reconfiguring the operation to better provide repair and overhaul work to operators of more types of engines.

The Winnipeg site, which the company calls SACS-Canada, is now configured to provide service to three additional engines: Rolls Royce T56 turboprops, M250 turboshafts and 501K gas turbines, say Cincinnati-based StandardAero.

In addition, the company has upgraded its component plating capability in Winnipeg, giving the company the ability to perform a range of services on Pratt & Whitney PW2000 and PW4000 turbofans.

StandardAero’s Winnipeg site already services International Aero Engines’ V2500, CFM International’s CFM56 and General Electric’s GE90, CF34 and CF6 and LM1600, LM2500 and LM6000.

“The expanded SACS-Canada facility will provide a substantial increase in StandardAero’s component repair offerings to meet the growing market and customer demands for customized component repair solutions,” says the company.

The announcement follows the May news that StandardAero will expand by 30,000 ft2 its composite processing and repair center in Cincinnati.

The site will have new equipment used to overhaul fan cases, acoustic liners, air and oil seals, fan platforms and guide vanes, says the company.
