On the third day of the 2016 International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS), Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with a French company.
Speaking to GEO News, Air Commodore (AC) Sajid Mahmoud Aman said that the MoU would provide PAC with the capability to manufacture hot area harnesses for use with engines such as the Klimov RD-93. Aman added that this is part of PAC’s effort to localize its maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) base.
Notes & Comments:
The French industry giant ECA Group is exhibiting at IDEAS. It is likely that ECA Group is the vendor from which PAC will be procuring the hardware outlined in the MoU.
