With teamwork on the C919 program, we’re ready for the future
October 11, 2016
As the C919 program moves into its flight test and industrial phases, Nexcelle is demonstrating our joint venture’s reactivity to support its role as the innovation nacelle system supplier for China’s newest jetliner.
Using in-country resources of Nexcelle’s parent companies, along with the staff based in Shanghai, we carried out a quick-turnaround integration that was highly appreciated by our customer.
By bringing personnel from Safran Nacelles’ Xian SAVI Nacelles operation in the city of X’ian – supported by Nexcelle’s full-time engineering/support staff at Shanghai, and the on-site assistance of GE Aviation MRAS – the work was performed in a matter of days from the go-ahead.
Such teamwork sets the stage for the future, and I’m confident Nexcelle will continue to prove its readiness to meet tasks ahead in the increasingly busy C919 program.
