"Firstly, the Holding company has to identify customers for its aircraft maintenance services. This will determine the specific locations for the centers," said Maxim Kuzyuk, CEO of Technodinamika. "As a pilot project, we are looking at establishing an ASC in Peru, where we will set up a center for component repairs, as well as a return and replacement stock for the most frequently repaired products." He also mentioned that this will presumably be generators and converters for all types of aircraft, including airplanes and helicopters. In the future, the Holding company will expand its ASC network in these countries.
"The air force fleet in Latin America includes more than 400 Russian-made units of equipment," said Maxim Kuzyuk, CEO of Technodinamika. "However, about two-thirds of this equipment are currently out of service and require maintenance and repairs." He added that the establishment of service centers would make it possible to meet the demand for repairs of Russian-made aircraft equipment.
According to the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, the supply of Russian-made products to Latin American countries will expand. This includes all types of helicopters, MiG and Sukhoi fighter jets and combat training aircraft.
Technodinamika has already reached an agreement on establishing service centers in India. The parties are currently in the process of determining specific locations for these centers and agreeing the product range.
