A new Engine Change Service agreement with Delta TechOps is set to benefit the Trent 1000 programme. Delta TechOps joins a growing number of partners who support Rolls-Royce in delivering the Engine Change Service, where Rolls-Royce acts as a one-stop shop to organise labour, parts and/or tooling for any Trent engine change event.
The Delta TechOps team will support engine changes for Trent 1000, Trent 7000 and Trent XWB engines in the Americas.
The Engine Change Service is offered as a Foundation Service within the Rolls-Royce CareStore, and customers are able to request a quote for their engine change event requirements from our 24/7 Aircraft Availability Centre, be that a home base or remote site location.
It further improves our ability to ensure aircraft are available for service, supporting our vision that every Rolls-Royce powered aircraft departs and lands on time, every time, as efficiently as possible.
Our partnership with Delta TechOps has allowed us to increase maintenance capacity for the Trent engine family, starting with the Trent 1000. The first Trent 1000 engine repaired at the overhaul facility is back in service, with engineers continuing to perform maintenance on Trent 1000s.
Rolls-Royce recently joined Delta TechOps as it opened the largest test cell in the world. Once the first Trent 1000 engine is calibrated at the test cell, it will speed up recovery efforts further, implementing fixes and testing them under the same roof, so engines can get back on-wing sooner.
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.
