Sanad, based in Abu Dhabi, inaugurates the first certified Engine Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) center in the region

Abu Dhabi marks a historic moment in aviation for South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa as Sanad, a global aerospace leader under Mubadala Investment Company, inaugurates the Leap Engine Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) Centre. This 5,000 sqm facility stands as the region’s first certified engine MRO center, equipped with advanced technical capabilities and seamlessly integrating into the global Leap MRO network.

Strategic Collaboration for Aviation Advancement

Sanad’s Leap MRO Center emerges from a groundbreaking 11-year shop visit offload agreement signed with GE Aerospace and Safran Aircraft Engines during the Paris Air Show in June 2023. This strategic collaboration expands Sanad’s MRO services, now encompassing new-generation CFM International Leap-1A and -1B engines. The Leap MRO Center signifies a significant investment exceeding Dh100 million, reinforcing Abu Dhabi’s commitment to cutting-edge machinery, infrastructure, and technology for robust engine MRO capabilities.

Efficiency and Sustainability Take Flight

Designed to address the global Leap engine MRO ramp-up, the center contributes to sustainability and operational efficiency. flydubai, among the first airlines benefiting from this facility, applauds the partnership with CFM and Sanad for its positive impact on operational efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness for their growing fleet.

Operational Excellence and Global Recognition: Sanad

The center’s rapid induction of the first Leap engine within four months of signing the agreement underscores its operational efficiency and positions Abu Dhabi as a hub for aerospace excellence. With plans to receive over 450 Leap engines, the Leap MRO Center offers high-level sustainment and reduces the environmental footprint associated with engine transportation.

Job Opportunities and Talent Development

Anticipating the creation of job opportunities, the Leap MRO Center is set to contribute to Abu Dhabi’s talent pool, solidifying its position in the global aerospace industry. The center’s commitment to excellence and speed establishes it as a crucial part of the global Leap open MRO network, garnering recognition from industry leaders.

Abu Dhabi’s Leap MRO Center represents a significant stride in advancing the region’s aerospace capabilities, with a focus on sustainability, innovation, and operational excellence.
