Volga-Dnepr Technics has extended its aircraft maintenance and repair services in the Middle East with the addition of a new wheel and brake maintenance division in Sharjah, UAE.
Represented in the region by Volga-Dnepr Gulf Company, Volga-Dnepr Technics says its new production capabilities in Sharjah include its investment in advanced maintenance equipment from the German equipment manufacturer, KUNZ. This enables Volga-Dnepr to offer wheel and brake servicing for various aircraft types including Boeing 747, Boeing 737Cl and NG, as well as Airbus A300, A310 and A320 aircraft.
All operations at the CAR-145 certified wheels and brakes workshop are performed in accordance with the requirements and standards of the Gulf Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). Among other services Volga-Dnepr Technics provides are the complete inspection of wheels and brakes including non-destructive testing (NDT), tyre replacement, wheel overhaul, friction pad replacement and brakes overhaul.
Volga-Dnepr has successfully completed its first series of maintenance checks on aircraft wheels and brakes for several airline clients in Sharjah. The company says it also plans to continue to expand its aircraft components maintenance and repair operations at the facility.
