 Defence minister Manohar Parrikar inaugurated a helicopter engines maintenance plant in Goa on Sunday. It is a joint venture of state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and Safran Helicopter Engines France located at north Goa’s Sattari district, according to a news report published in India Today.in. 

This venture will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for Safran TM333 2B2 and HAL Shakti engines installed on HAL-built helicopters operated by the defence services. The MRO centre plans to progressively support engines of international operators and other engines as mutually agreed between the partners. 
 
The minister said this is a step towards creating employment opportunities with a corresponding boost to the economic activities in Goa. “This is the right place for MRO activities related to helicopter engines. We have a local talent to meet the skill requirement for the project. There will be more expectations from all of us and we will progress," Parrikar said.
 
Safran has maintained a presence in India for over 60 years in its three core markets - aerospace, defence and security and its activities range from R&D to design, production and maintenance.
