THE aerospace arm of Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) announced on Wednesday it has secured some S$510 million in new contracts - ranging from heavy maintenance to engine wash - for the first quarter of 2018.

ST Aerospace was awarded the heavy maintenance contracts by "North American operators" to support their Boeing 757 and 767 fleet, ST Engineering announced in a media statement.

For the Boeing 787, ST Aerospace said it had received its first order for component support on that aircraft's thrust reverser's translating sleeve.

The company has also been awarded contracts from a number of customers for its EcoPower engine wash solution, which ST Aerospace said has been expanded to include engine manufacturer CFM International's LEAP engine.
