Aircelle reinforces its partnership with HAIC in Asia on the Silvercrest® Engine nacelle fan cowl door
The delivery to Aircelle of the first serial Silvercrest® engine nacelle fan cowl door is the proof that the company deploys its supply chain in Asia. This step strengthens a partnership already existed since 2012 with HAIC on the PW307 engine nacelle fan cowl door.
With the objective of meeting customer needs, Aircelle strengthens supply chain management in Aisa. AVIC HAIC has successfully delivered the first new-generation Silvercrest engine nacelle fan cowl. Currently this new generation of fan cowls is mainly manufactured in China and has been redesigned for WRP configuration (weight reduction configuration), with the sandwich panels and mechanical parts manufactured in China. It is a major milestone for the program and represents an important success in the cooperation between Aircelle and the partner.
In addition, AVIC HAIC, in Harbin (Heilongjiang), provides now complete nacelle fan cowls for PW307 engine.
