AMMROC Announces Contract to Support Etihad Engineering

Abu Dhabi-UAE: 22 February 2021 – 
AMMROC, a leading provider of military maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services in the region, have signed a contract to offer a comprehensive range of support services to Etihad Engineering, part of the Etihad Aviation Group (EAG), an industry leading aircraft maintenance and engineering solutions provider. The contract enables AMMROC to extend aircraft parking support and other services to Etihad Engineering, at its state-of-the-art MRO facility in Al Ain.

Hareb Thani Aldhaheri, the CEO of AMMROC and Abdul Khaliq Saeed, CEO of Etihad Engineering announced the contract at the ongoing International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX 2021) that runs until 25 February at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

In line with their longstanding commitment and partnership to strengthen the UAE’s aerospace industry and to enhance its contribution to the national economy, the two companies will collaborate to overcome the downturn witnessed by the industry in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and enable Etihad Engineering to park and store a growing number of both wide- and narrow- body civil aviation aircraft at the AMMROC facility.

Testifying to its industry-leading credentials, AMMROC’s engagement also reinforces its efforts to expand the breadth and depth of MRO Al Ain operations, while ensuring that the aircraft maintenance and parking project is retained within the UAE.

Speaking on the new contract, Hareb Aldhaheri, the CEO of AMMROC, said: “We are pleased to support Etihad Engineering in meeting its operational requirements at this uncertain time for the aviation sector.

This new synergy also confirms our status as an industry leader and marks a step in widening the scope of the traditional MRO services we provide our customers.

In doing so, we are also enhancing the potential and capability of our world-leading MRO facility in Al Ain, as we partner with entities in civil aviation as well as military stakeholders – reiterating our long-term commitment to the sustainability of the MRO sector in the UAE.”  

Abdul Khaliq Saeed, CEO of Etihad Engineering, said: “As we continue to add more capabilities to our comprehensive range of MRO solutions, we are seeing an increasing number of aircraft from global customers arriving in Abu Dhabi.

We are delighted that our partnership with AMMROC not only supports the local economy but strengthens the UAE’s vision of leading the aviation and aerospace sector.”

With a scope to support more than 35 different aircraft types, both fixed and rotary wing, AMMROC’s facility offers one of the region’s largest military and civil MRO hangar capacities – spanning an area of 36,500 sq. m.

Incorporating four multi-purpose hangars, over 30 back shops and a specialised environmentally controlled strip/paint facility, AMMROC’s MRO hub provides nose-to-tail MRO capabilities,
