JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 8th November 2017. Solenta Aviation has selected Rusada’s engineering and maintenance technology to support the management of airworthiness across their fleet of 45 aircraft in an agreement signed this week.
The Johannesburg based ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance) operation will use Rusada’s Envision® nGen technology initially within their CAMO department, before rolling out additional functionality for procurement, logistics stock management, production as well as personnel scheduling and training – all as part of a 5-year agreement.
Solenta operates several regional cargo routes on behalf of DHL, humanitarian missions for the Red Cross, regional airlines and passenger flights for the oil and gas industry across Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean.
Solenta conducted an extensive review of the major players in this technology space before clearly identifying Rusada as being their preferred long-term partner to deliver on their business objectives.
Mike Gaylard, Managing Director of Solenta Aviation Workshop said: “Providing a first-class service for our customers whilst delivering the highest standard of safety is Solenta’s primary focus. As the requirements of our customers and regulators evolve, we recognized that our existing tools wouldn’t deliver the flexibility and agility we need as our operations grow.”
Julian Stourton said: “During the technology review, Mike and his team exposed limitations within the legacy system which would mean reporting, situational awareness and operational optimisation would become increasingly difficult as the airline’s operation expanded.”
Julian continued: “Because of Envision nGen’s modular approach, it integrates a number of the previously disparate process into a single platform that improves reliability and enables a more responsive, agile environment.”
The deployment of Envision nGen is expected to kick-off in December and the phased implementation will mean Solenta will be live with components of the system before the end of Q2 2018. Full scope implementation, across the entire organisation is expected by mid 2019.
