Snecma Morocco Engine Services Expands Engine MRO Capabilities


Snecma Morocco Engine Services (SMES) today inaugurated its expanded maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities at the Mohamed V Airport in Casablanca. The new 3,000 square meter workshop will enable SMES to expand its range of activities, including disassembly and reassembly of engine modules, cleaning and deoxidation of parts using chemical and mechanical processes, non-destructive testing of these parts and certain repair jobs. The construction of the new facility reflects the Moroccan government’s support of the domestic aviation industry.
