Volga-Dnepr starts to build new hangar at Sharjah Airport


Volga-Dnepr Group has commenced construction of a new hangar at Sharjah Airport in the United Arab Emirates that will soon be providing MRO services for freighter and passenger aircraft, according to the Shipping Gazette. 
The hangar is scheduled to be fully operational by January 2013 and will be operated by Volga-Dnepr Technics. It will offer maintenance and repair services to third parties for both Russian and western-built aircraft.
The group's Gulf branch was established in Sharjah in 1996 and its core activities include maintenance and repair services as well as the supply of components and consumables and the sale of aeronautic products and petroleum, oils, lubricants (POL) applicable to a wide range of aircraft. The new hanger facility will increase its capability still further.
The 20,000-square-metre hangar is in a future heart of the multi-functional MRO facility and will also be equipped with a range of facilities for additional services, including repair workshops such as wheels and brakes, batteries, structure repairs, extensive storage facilities and offices.
"We will be offering a range of services to cargo operators," said Victor Sherin. "The Sharjah Airport Free Zone is well known as a vast cargo centre for the whole Middle East region, and this investment will allow flight operators to effectively solve any maintenance-related issues that arise during the operations, from line maintenance to heavy checks."
The hangar has capacity to maintain up to six narrow body aircraft or two 747s at the same time. A wide spectrum of types such as Boeing 737-Classic, 737-NG, 747-200/300/400, AN-124, AN-74 and IL-76 are expected to be among the users.
