Written by  | Published in: Aviation News

Engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce has opened a new £50 million ($72 million) London Heathrow service center to provide round-the-clock maintenance and support for its powerplants.

The 95,000 sq. ft. facility includes a state-of-the-art engine workshop four times larger than the previous Rolls-Royce service center at Hatton Cross, Heathrow.

The new center will be capable of handling operations on up to 13 of the company’s Trent engines at any one time, double the capacity of the previous facility.

In addition, the center will be capable of storing up to 30 large gas turbines, available for supply to operators worldwide.

More than 90% of Trent engine orders include TotalCare services support that maximizes engine availability. Services accounted for more than 50% of Rolls-Royce civil aerospace revenue in 2012.
