StandardAero awarded C-130 propulsion system maintenance, engineering support contract

StandardAero has been awarded a multi-year contract for maintenance and engineering support of the Royal Netherlands Air Force’s C-130H and C-130H-30 Hercules propulsion systems.

The award endorses StandardAero’s global, market-leading position on Hercules and Orion propulsion support.

It also recognizes the benefits StandardAero can deliver to C-130 and P-3 operators over their life cycle; including improved performance and reduced support costs.

The RNLAF has a fleet of four C-130H and C-130H-30 aircraft and the contract includes propulsion support for the Rolls-Royce T56-A-15LFE Engines, Lockheed Martin Quick Engine Changes, Hamilton Sundstrand 54H60 Propellers and all related components.

“This contract award represents a key strategic opportunity for StandardAero to expand our regionally-based support for both C-130 and P-3 propulsion systems within the European market,” said Harinder Grewal, senior vice president, Government and Military, StandardAero.  “This regional expansion offers European C-130 operators with the benefits of our industry-leading services and extends our reach to the broader international T56/501D community.”

The primary support activity will be provided by StandardAero’s combined Rolls-Royce T56/501D Authorized Maintenance Center and Lockheed Martin authorized C-130 QEC Service Center located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Domestic support will be provided by StandardAero from their European Service Center located in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Since 1960, StandardAero has maintained Canada’s C-130 propulsion systems. Through an innovative and sophisticated aftermarket approach they have grown their market share to become the largest C-130 propulsion maintenance company supporting operators around the world including the United States Air Force, Royal Canadian Air Force, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Taiwan Navy, Royal Thai Air Force, Indonesian Air Force and United States Navy.
