Babcock signs up for helicopter engine monitoring

The new service will allow customers to track engine life data and thus reduce unplanned events, said Safran.

Babcock Mission Critical Services Onshore has become the first customer to sign up for Safran’s new health monitoring service for helicopter engines.

The new service will allow customers to track engine life data and thus reduce unplanned events, said Safran. Babcock MCS will benefit from the service in relation to its Arrius 2B2-powered H135 fleet.

Shaun Strain, Babcock MCS Onshore director of engineering, commented: “We have successfully tested the Safran solution for more than a year now. Receiving personalised reports directly from the manufacturer allows us to adjust our maintenance programme, resulting in cost and time savings.”
