Delta TechOps completes first Trent 1000 overhaul

Posted 30 January 2019 · Add Comment

The first Trent 1000 engine repaired at Delta TechOps’ engine overhaul facility in Atlanta, Georgia is ready to return to service.

Delta TechOps is a Trent Authorised Maintenance Centre. The first Trent 1000 engine was taken into the facility in late 2018. As well as completing the engine shop visit, engineers took the opportunity to learn more about the engine.

In addition to working on the Trent 1000, the 127,000 sq ft facility will also carry out services on the latest generation Trent 7000 and Trent XWB engines. There is now increased capacity for maintenance of Rolls-Royce engines, supporting a wider services strategy of an increasingly capable, competitive and flexible CareNetwork. The improved network will minimise time engines spend being maintained, and maximise flying time.

Rolls-Royce has expanded its service capacity, reduced turnaround times, developed innovative inspection techniques, and accelerated new part introduction to minimise disruption to customers as a result of increased inspections on Trent 1000 engines.

Tom Palmer, Rolls-Royce, Director of Services – Civil Aerospace, said: “Delta TechOps is an important and valued partner, working closely with us to improve aircraft availability. The facility will also benefit customers of the wider Trent family, expanding our network and continually reducing engine maintenance turnaround times, so airlines can keep passengers flying.”

Don Mitacek, S.V.P. – TechOps at Delta said: “Having completed maintenance of our first Trent 1000 engine, we’re looking forward to supporting Rolls-Royce across its engine programs. We’ve learned a lot over the past few months and are confident we can continue to expand alongside our partners.”

The new facility, in Atlanta, Georgia, was created by converting several large aircraft hangar bays and building a new test facility. The workshop consists of areas for engine assembly and disassembly; kitting parts; engines work in progress; shop materials and supplies, life limited parts and repair and support. A new test cell will open later this year, capable of testing engines to 150,000lb thrust.
