Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow Awarded MRO Certification for Liege Station

Russian-based Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow (VDTM), a subsidiary of the Volga-Dnepr Group, recently completed the certification of a line maintenance station in Liege, Belgium.

The station in Liege is one of the largest Russian MRO providers and with this new certification, it is now able to carry out scheduled line maintenance for B737-300/400/500, B747-400 and B747-8 aircraft.

General Director for VDTM, Pavel Tereschenkov said, “The set-up of the line maintenance station in Liege is a huge step forward for us because it makes accessible the European maintenance market for B737-300/400/500, B747-400 and B747-8 aircraft. Our employees managed to accomplish the whole certification process in a record-breaking five months, half of which was spent on the preparation and provision of facilities with the necessary equipment. We intend to expand a range of services with a focus on quality and timely fulfillment of commitments.”

VDTM currently undertakes maintenance of AirBridgeCargo Airlines aircraft, which is part of the Volga-Dnepr Group and boasts a fleet of 18 B747 freighters. Later this year the station will also provide MRO services to B737 aircraft owned by Atran Airlines.

Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow has been providing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for Russian- and Western-built aircraft since the business began in 2008 with the initial focus on providing centralization and coordination of aircraft MRO activities within the Group and improve their quality of service throughout.

In their home country of Russia VDTM provides their MRO services in Krasnodar (Pashkovsky Airport), Krasnoyarsk (Yemelyanovo Airport), and the capital city of Moscow (Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo and Vnukovo Airports).

Each station within the company is MRO certified bases offering the highest quality maintenance service for Boeing 747, Boeing 737, Airbus A320 and Sukhoi SuperJet aircraft types.

A new workshop for loading equipment and aircraft interior maintenance has been created and will undergo continued development.
