Volartec announced two new firsts for Alkym. With Helitrans AS selecting Alkym Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance to replace their existing system, they become the company’s first customer in Scandinavia and also their first Helicopter operator in Europe.
Helitrans AS will begin the on-site phase in March 2012 which will involve a 6 week project in Trondheim Norway. The 3 person team from Volartec will lay the ground work for 3 weeks prior to that visit to ensure Helitrans get the maximum support whilst the highly experience professional team are at their facility. This phase will see the full training provided as well the Alkym configuration and data set up. Helitrans will have Alkym Live and on-site support provided prior to the departure of the Volartec team.
Lasse Andersen, director maintenance with Helitrans pointed to “The professional approach that was shown by Volartec throughout our rigorous search for a replacement system gave them the edge. To have a product with such functionality that we could fit to our budget was important. However the knowledge that we will be working with a professional provider was the deal clincher for us. My team exhausted every avenue to ensure we only made this move once. We wished to ensure our selected system would stand the test of time and based on the complexity in fleet composition, it was extremely important for Helitrans to choose a comprehensive flexible system.”
Helitrans have selected a 10 concurrent user licence utilising 11 of the 15 available Alkym modules.
