Middle River Aircraft Systems and Lufthansa Technik sign Thrust Reverser MRO partnership agreement

Middle River Aircraft Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of GE Aviation, has signed a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) agreement with Lufthansa Technik under which LHT will be MRAS’s authorized service provider for the thrust reverser on the GEnx-2B engines that power the Boeing 747-8 aircraft. This long-term partnership will cover the 24/7 product support, asset leasing/exchange and maintenance service offerings to worldwide 747-8 operators. Lufthansa is currently the largest operator of the 747-8 aircraft with 19 total aircraft ordered. Boeing offers the 747-8 in both freighter and passenger aircraft configurations all powered by the GEnx-2B engine. Under the agreement, LHT will provide various GEnx-2B nacelle MRO services, including but not limited to warranty repairs and modifications on behalf of MRAS. Initially LHT will set up repair capability at its Hamburg, Germany and Shenzhen, China facilities. With more than three decades of experience within the area of advanced composites and bonded material repair technology, Lufthansa Technik has the proven experience to support customers through the entire life cycle of the nacelle – from the entry into service up to major and complex repairs. LHT will provide and maintain an adequate pool of spares to offer customers exchanges and or leases while their thrust reverser is being repaired. These serviceable spare thrust reversers will be available to worldwide customers on a 24/7 support basis
