Direct Maintenance receives EASA Part-145 "C6" approval for air cargo containers
Direct Maintenance has received another significant extension of its EASA Part-145 'Scope of Work', by obtaining the 'C6' approval from its regulatory authority CAA/NL. This latest addition allows Direct Maintenance to maintain, repair and overhaul, including signing Certification of Release to Service, of air cargo containers. Direct Maintenance has in particular focused on active cooling cargo containers for its launch customer CSafe Global, the USA based OEM of the renowned 'RKN'. The maintenance and repair services provided on our customer's equipment can be released be either an EASA Form-1 or an FAA Form 8130.
CSafe Global's RKN is the only compressor-driven refrigeration unit with precise temperature management of 4°C – 25°C, for shipment of pharma products on either upper of lower belly of wide body aircraft. The robust insulation and thermal capabilities of the RKN will withstand extended hold times and delays in transit. The battery life is over 100 hours at 25°C and, because there is no dry ice, there are no special handling charges or charges for hazardous goods. In addition, the data tracking device monitors and verifies the payload temperature to aid regulatory compliance and data is easily downloadable via USB. CSafe Global has a worldwide service and support network and flexible leasing options. Direct Maintenance is proud being CSafe Global's MRO partner for The Netherlands, operating a large state-of-art facility at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
