Navantia and General Electric (GE) have signed a licensing agreement authorizing the latter to perform the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of the GE LM2500 marine gas turbines.
The agreement was signed by General Electric’s International Sales Director, Dave Nelson and Navantia’s President, Esteban García Vilasánchez. This followed a previous agreement signed on July 7.
According to the statement from Navantia, this long-term agreement will enable it to develop a new line of activity with the Spanish Navy and worldwide. The agreement will also reinforce Navantia’s value proposition with regard to Life Cycle Support for both Navantia and other Navy ships.
The first result of this license is the next collaboration agreement between the Spanish Navy and Navantia to provide support and technical assistance in the maintenance of the LM2500 turbines of all its ships of the Spanish Navy.
The Ferrol Turbine Plant is being equipped with the necessary skills for the development of this activity with personnel of high qualification. In this sense, six technicians from the Ría de Ferrol have recently completed their training phase at the General Electric facility in Houston.
