Technical issues / Supply issues •

Limited fleet & Flight plan => No major modifications



Part obsolecence & Decreasing industrial support – Longer lead times >< “Small” stock of spares @ BDEF • Risk of AOG-situation…

– Prices increasing exponentionaly >< Decreasing budget – Some examples: • • • • •



Shear Bolt P/N S6126-50108-1 Radar 1500B => Spare parts for repair of RxTx (Honeywell - P/N 4001973-0151) Indicators & Instruments => Indicator vertical (Meggitt Avionics - P/N L80801-10-025), … RNS-252 Nav Computer => Display units (Thales Avionics – P/N 80895/GBS020030) Compass Mk 7B => Repeater unit / Master indicator / etc.

Lead times / MOQ’s / Increasing prices – Difficult to determine the minimum stock level • Trade-off Budget >< Risk

Framework Contract •

• • •

Aim – Solve (some) supply issues – Supply of critical spare parts (No longer supplied by OEM) – Supply of second hand major items – AOG orders – Standard exchange Period – 2015-2016-2017 Kick-off Dec 2014 Interested? Please contact us: Robin[email protected]

Plans & Evolutions • •

Since Sep 2013: 3 Sea Kings operational Phasing out Sea King linked with IOC / FOC NH90 – BEL: 8 x NH90 → 4 x NFH (ordered in June 2007) – Final Configuration BEL NFH will be the same as the Dutch version (cooperation). No sonar & torpedoes, but pre-dispositions are installed – Deliveries • • • •

Aug 2013: 1st NFH Mei 2014: 2nd NFH Nov 2014: 3th NFH First half 2015: 4th and last NFH

– Missions • • • •

Search & Rescue IOC (Initial operational Capability) : Oct 2015 – SAR with Sea King and NH90 FOC ( Final Operational Capability): Dec 2016 – SAR only with NH90 Maritime operations: Reconnaissance and Anti-piracy missions

Plans & Evolutions •

Pending: increase of the Flight Plan with 650 Hrs >< Investments: – – – –



2 additional engines (>600 Hrs / engine) 1 additonal Tail Gearbox 1 additional Swashplate (1 additional intermediate Gearbox)

Possible problems – Repair: Turn around times – 2nd Hand • Available stock? • Log Cards, COC’s, …



Investments Sea king >< Operationality NH90 – SAR commitment

24

Challenges •

Small fleet >< operational requirements – Very short reaction time – Structural repairs: “Stn 290”,… • Limited capacity in-house



Manage obsolescence – Spare parts – Turn around times – High costs



Deal with incertainity – Phasing out Sea King >< NH90 • Material Management: Science => Art



Skilled personel 25

Conclusions •

Major challenges – Uncertainty: Phasing out linked with IOC / FOC NH90 – Sea King will continue flying in 2016-2017 – Manage obsolescence



Key objectives – Realize Flight Plan and maintain StdBy SAR until FOC SAR NH90 – Assure availability of 2 H/C
