Air New Zealand’s Gas Turbines business has won a third significant contract to service US Navy LM2500™ Power Turbines, worth more than USD$17 million.
The contract will see the Auckland-based Gas Turbines team carry out maintenance on LM2500™ Gas Turbines which power the US Navy’s cruiser fleet.
Work on the 10 power turbines under the new contract is expected to commence in August 2019 and the overall body of work is expected to conclude in late 2021.
The contract was competitively bid for and Air New Zealand’s Chief Ground Operations Officer Carrie Hurihanganui says the contract win further builds on a longstanding relationship dating back to the late 1990’s the airline has with the US Navy.
“This is the third consecutive US Navy contract Air New Zealand has been awarded. This latest successful bid is testament to the efforts of our Gas Turbines team. The contract is a significant body of work for our business and demonstrates the robust working relationship we have built with the US Navy.”
Since 2017 the Air New Zealand Gas Turbines business has secured USD$38 million worth of confirmed work covering 22 engine units. This latest contract brings the total committed US Navy work to date to USD$55 million.
Air New Zealand Gas Turbines is a business unit of Air New Zealand and a General Electric “Authorised LM2500™ Service Provider” providing LM2500™ gas turbine overhaul and repair services to clients across a range of industries. The business began sourcing work in the industrial and marine sector more than 35 years ago and has since supported several of the world’s navies, offshore oil and gas platform operators and power generation companies.
