According to the press release, “Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation and Mubadala Aerospace have finalized a wide-ranging strategic agreement under which Mubadala Aerospace will be a key part of the support network for servicing Hamilton Sundstrand products and systems on the Boeing 787. The deal, a first for Hamilton Sundstrand, includes a licensing agreement for Mubadala Aerospace to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), through Mubadala-owned companies Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT), SR Technics and Sanad Aero Solutions (Sanad), based on Hamilton Sundstrand’s technical expertise. The agreement gives 787 operators an additional choice for their maintenance needs for Hamilton Sundstrand products and systems, which make up a majority of the systems on Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner.

Mubadala Aerospace is a business unit of Mubadala Development Company, the strategic investment arm of the Abu Dhabi government. Hamilton Sundstrand is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

Under the license agreement, ADAT and SR Technics will provide integrated component solutions (ICS) to Boeing 787 airline customers, while Sanad will provide financing of rotable components, all with the technical support of Hamilton Sundstrand. Mubadala Aerospace is developing a global network covering the entire MRO value chain, including engine, component and airframe capabilities, in addition to spare engine and rotable leasing through Sanad.

“Hamilton Sundstrand is pleased to establish this key relationship with Mubadala Aerospace to equip Mubadala MRO companies with the required resources to service Hamilton Sundstrand systems and particularly components for the Boeing 787,” said Matthew Bromberg, vice president and general manager, Hamilton Sundstrand Customer Service. “This arrangement will allow Hamilton Sundstrand to extend its reach of OEM world-class service by building on Mubadala Aerospace’s capabilities in both the Europe and the Middle East. The Boeing 787 has a diverse customer base and demands diverse maintenance solutions.”

Homaid Al Shemmari, executive director of Mubadala Aerospace, said, “We are delighted to sign this strategic agreement with Hamilton Sundstrand, which brings essential component capability to ADAT and SR Technics for the Boeing 787 and financing opportunities for Sanad. Hamilton Sundstrand is one of the largest players in the aerospace components industry, and shares our global ambitions. Importantly, this expands our relationship with UTC and complements our existing partnership with Sikorsky in AMMROC. We are excited about the overall opportunities this relationship brings to both parties.””
