Safran is proud to announce ÖAMTC (Österreichischer Automobil-, Motorrad- und Touring Club) as one of the first major customers to sign a Premium Health Monitoring contract. The Health Monitoring service for helicopter engines, launched last October at Helitech International allows customers to track engine life data and thus reduce unplanned events. Engine life can be improved with the early detection of low signals, prognosis analysis and maintenance plan customization.
ÖAMTC is going to use this service, in its Arrius 2B2-powered H135 fleet. Marco Trefanitz, ÖAMTC CEO, commented: “We look forward receiving from engines experts a large range of recommendations, from performance analysis to usage advises. We expect that Premium Health Monitoring will have a positive impact on our maintenance costs which helps to reduce our operation run rate. Additionally it will optimize the availability of our H135 fleet and will pay off in reduction of downtime costs and therefore costs for spare helicopters.”
Frédéric Bugeon, Safran Helicopter Engines VP Sales, Marketing and Customer Satisfaction, added “We are very happy to see an Austrian customer join the Health Monitoring community. By subscribing to the Premium solution, ÖAMTC will benefit from Safran analysis and maintenance reports. Over 100 of our operators are already using the Essential solution to visualize their Engine Power Check trends.”
Health Monitoring is available at an Essential level, where the customer is responsible for data collection and analysis, and a Premium one where maintenance recommendations by Safran experts are tailored to the customer’s fleet, missions and usage rates. Most of the parameters are gathered continuously by an electronic recorder designed by Safran partners.
The Health Monitoring service is made available online at the Safran Helicopter Engines Customer Portal, anytime, from anywhere with any device. Health Monitoring is part of Safran’s EngineLife® Services, a range of solutions for helicopter engines.
