Otvorena fabrika u Rumuniji
Citat:The 10,000 m 2 facility, representing an investment of EUR52 million (USD58.4 million), will be responsible for producing the H215 helicopter in both the C1e and L1e variants - formerly known as the AS 332 Super Puma. Currently, the helicopters are produced in Marignane, France.
An Airbus Helicopters spokesperson told IHS Jane's that "Providing a significant order arrives soon, the first H215 could come out of the final assembly line in 2018."
Speaking to IHS Jane's representatives in late 2015, Airbus Helicopters representatives claimed that the factory could produce up to 15 H215s per year, once full-rate production is achieved. Operators of the helicopter include Starlite Aviation Group, the Bolivian Air Force, and the Finnish Border Guards.
The facility will support 350 new jobs once full production is reached, in addition to the 150 jobs supported by the neighbouring Airbus Helicopters Romania maintenance, repair, and overhaul joint venture operated in conjunction with Romania's IAR Brasov.
