RUAG is strategically targeting new markets in the helicopter sector and investing in optimising the maintenance of dynamic components. The upcoming investments in the future of the dynamic component workshop at the Alpnach site are expected to improve planning, adherence to schedules and reliability of maintenance work, the company writes in a press release.
At the Alpnach site, the overhaul of dynamic components for the SUPER PUMA, AS332 and AS532 MKI is one of the core competencies at this location. Improving throughput times in the component shop and the availability of spare parts needed at short notice are believed to be success factors for ensuring the shortest possible delivery times. By optimising internal processes and ensuring the availability of exchange parts and components, this key requirement is expected to be met better in the future. The groundbreaking ceremony for the new rotor blade shop took place on 11 February 2022. From the end of summer 2022, the building is to be ready for rotor blade maintenance.
