PARIS, 19 June 2013. OEM Defence Services has signed a five-year maintenance contract with Eurocopter covering more than 100 equipment items, including avionics, hydraulics, and mechanical systems, installed on all versions of the NH90 helicopter in service worldwide.

The single contract covers through-life support services for equipment and systems manufactured by five major players in the aerospace sector that are shareholders in OEM Defence Services: Diehl Aerospace, Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation, Safran, Thales, and Zodiac.

Through this new agreement, based on a shared-services model with contractual commitments on performance levels and costs, OEM Defence Services is helping to drive the simplification of onboard equipment maintenance and improve the overall performance of through-life support for the NH90 fleet.

With the conclusion of this contract, Eurocopter and OEM Defence Services deploy an optimized model of industrial cooperation that will improve the operational efficiency of NH90 customers and help to control their through-life support budgets.

The NH90 is a modern tactical and utility helicopter for land and naval operations. As of today, more than 500 firm orders of the NH90 helicopter have been received by the NHI consortium (Eurocopter, AgustaWestland, Fokker) from 14 countries.

The NH90 is available in two main versions, TTH (Tactical Transport Helicopter), and NFH (Nato Frigate Helicopter).
