Specifically, ATTAR has been tasked with delivering advanced NDT for key helicopter components under a recognised global standard, at Leonardo’s helicopter main gearbox Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Facility (MROF).

The work is expected to include support for both ADF projects and emergency services platforms.

“Our Fishermans Bend facility is a state-of-the-art centre built to service our Australia commitments,” Giorgio Mantegazza, the managing director of Leonardo Australia, said.  

“The partnership with ATTAR strengthens our position in the Australian market and will provide greater service for Leonardo commercial, public and defence clients locally and in the regional market.”

ATTAR CEO Glenn D’Costa added, “This agreement is testament to the effort and investment made by both companies over the past 30 years in supporting the Australian Defence force.
