Rolls-Royce enhancing CareNetwork capability

Posted 18 January 2018 · Add Comment

Rolls-Royce is continuing to develop its CareNetwork capability to service existing fleets as well as ensuring it is ready to meet the future ramp-up in engine service requirements.



As part of this process, Rolls-Royce has signed an agreement with StandardAero to provide maintenance service for RB211-535E4 engines from its base in San Antonio, Texas. The first engine inductions will take place in early 2019.

Around 1,000 RB211-535E4 engines are in service, powering Boeing 757 aircraft, with half of the fleet in service in North America. RB211-535E4 engines are anticipated to remain in commercial airline service until the year 2040.

This marks a further milestone in Rolls-Royce’s strategy to develop a competitive, capable and flexible network to meet the changing needs of customers across the lifecycle of engines and to support the growing Trent engine fleet. Recent additions to the CareNetwork have included Air France Industries KLM Engineering Maintenance, Mubadala Development Company, and Delta TechOps.

Tom Palmer, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Services, Civil Aerospace, said: “We are continuing to evolve our CareNetwork to make it ever more competitive, capable, and flexible and this agreement strengthens the level of service support we can offer our customers. I know that, in StandardAero, we have a service provider that will be able to meet the needs of our RB211-535E4 customers both now and in the future.”

Peter Turner, President of StandardAero’s Airlines and Fleets division, said: “The RB211-535E4 will be the highest thrust engine in our commercial MRO portfolio. Winning this large, long-term commercial contract is a true demonstration of our strong customer relationships, trusted service partnerships and proven abilities to successfully stand up engine MRO programs.”
