Rolls-Royce is expanding its global network of engine overhaul services to support growth in its fleet of large aero engines.

With Rolls-Royce's fleet of in-service engines forecast to grow from more than 4,000 today to approximately 6,500 in the mid-term – and even further beyond that – it expects demand for overhaul services to increase over the coming years.

This planned expansion comes as the long-term focus of Rolls-Royce's business moves towards managing the aftermarket potential of its fleet of widebody aircraft engines, following successful expansion over many years. This further expansion of its network of engine overhaul facilities also underpins its commitment to reducing the impact on customers of in-service issues with the Trent 1000.

In Germany, part of the Rolls-Royce Deutschland site in Dahlewitz will transition into an overhaul services hub with the capability of handling widebody engine overhauls. Rolls-Royce's Canada site in Montreal, which currently services business jet engines, will also be repurposed to become a widebody engine overhaul facility.

These moves come in addition to ongoing investment in the UK, where its Derby site will become an engine overhaul Centre of Excellence, capable of overhauling the new engine types in its fleet.

Rolls-Royce's team in Derby is developing new overhaul techniques and will provide training to its wider network. Rolls-Royce will also continue to invest in overhaul facilities in Bristol and Inchinnan to enhance their capacity to undertake overhauls of Trent 700 engines.

Expanding capacity in our network of service facilities follows previous announcements on increasing provision for engine overhaul through Authorised Maintenance Centres at Delta Tech Ops, Sanad Aerotech and Standard Aero.

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Civil Aerospace Services Director, said: “We are focused on expanding our existing global network to address the growing demand for overhaul services and to provide our customers with even better service solutions both now and into the future.”
