CRMA, the AFI KLM E&M subsidiary, has launched an €8 million expansion plan called Project Apollo to extend its capacity by 25 percent. It currently specialises in the regeneration of mechanical components, engine assembly repairs and component maintenance.
Investment has added 2,500 square metres of additional surface area and new, ultra-modern equipment. Recent projects include new parts and engine assemblies, especially in the field of Very Big Engines (VBE). CRMA has also developed capabilities for GEnx engines, powering the Boeing 787, and is currently industrialising Rolls Royce engine part repairs, including for the A350’s Trent XWB powerplant.
The new capacity is scheduled for delivery in the spring of 2018.
