Singaporean MRO firm ST Aerospace has secured maintenance contracts worth S$540 million ($432 million) in the first quarter of 2012 for its Aircraft Maintenance and Modification, Component Total Support and Engine Total Support businesses.

These include an order for 15 Boeing 757-200 passenger-to-freighter (PTF) conversions, says the MRO firm.

Between January and March, ST Aerospace redelivered 90 aircraft for airframe-related maintenance and modification work.

For PTF conversions, it redelivered three Boeing 757-200 converted freighters to FedEx Express.

ST Aerospace serviced 51 engines and 15,720 components for both commercial and military customers.

During the quarter, ST Aerospace received two Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) for its Boeing 757-200 passenger-to-passenger and cargo (PTC) conversion programme from the European Aviation Safety Agency and the US Federal Aviation Administration.
