Rolls-Royce Looks To Partnerships As Solution To Capacity Demands

British engine maker has built up a sizeable global MRO network comprised of specialist engine support shops.

Existing and potentially new partnerships could help Rolls-Royce meet the greater number of engines anticipated to go into service over the next decade.

Speaking at Aero Engines Europe in Madrid on Wednesday (Sept. 13), Scott Holland, regional marketing executive – aerospace at Rolls-Royce, said: “The increased volume of engines going into service is going to mean an increased level of capacity and we are going to need to satisfy that through partnerships with MRO providers in the industry.”

Holland said the level of investment required for setting up an MRO line for a large engine such as the new-gen Trent XWB is significant and partnering with independents has proved integral towards establishing building the right level of support for the in-service fleet to date.
