SAIFEI - A joint venture destined for the Chinese market


SAIFEI, 51% owned by COMAC and 49% owned by Safran Electrical & Power, is responsible for the development, production and support of the EWIS cabling system on the C919 through a partnership agreement.

Since its establishment in 2012, SAIFEI, the joint venture between Chinese aircraft manufacturer COMAC and Safran Electrical & Power, has continuously developed. SAIFEI's engineering teams in Shanghai now consist of over 200 employees spread across the Yongda and SADRI sites. They all work on designing C919 data and power interconnection systems, dealing not only with engineering (3D), but also integration (functional design and harmonization), using the e-Centric tool developed by Safran Electrical & Power and IGE XAO.

The manufacturing of the best harnesses takes place, according to SAIFEI, in the Zhuqiao factory, bringing together around two hundred staff across around 4,000 m².
