IGB delivers on the total certification package for 15 large monuments.
The standards regarding design and finish as well as overall project management were very high.
Initially, the client wanted to divide the certification activities between several subcontractors due to the tight lead time and number of units (15!) to be certified.
The Complete Package
IGB convinced the client that all certification work, including the windmilling* could be outsourced to us as a single sub-contractor and have the following benefits:
- One partner, thus one single point of contact
- One reporting standard
- Centralized communication with the regulatory authorities (Airbus)
- Streamlined critical processes with project delivery the milestones
Furthermore, IGB improved procedures and standardized the client’s reporting. Together with the application of IGB ModelSource, this combined effort resulted in on-time delivery of high quality reports and calculations that could be swiftly approved by the authorities.
* Airbus models A340-500/-600 must comply with the windmilling requirements in order to prove the endurance of the unit in case of a fan blade-off event. For this purpose, dynamic response calculations have to be performed and fatigue analysis has to be done on critical fixture locations. This work is carried out in close co-operation with the aircraft manufacturer.
