AFI KLM E&M engine shop completes first GEnx overhaul

The AFI KLM E&M engine shop at Schiphol recently completed its first “Quick Turn” shop visit on a GEnx-1B engine. This first operation is important as it marks the beginning of a product offer slated for substantial development in the years ahead. AFI KLM E&M has actively geared up to get ready for the entry into service of the latest addition to the family of GE power plants in order to offer top quality service explains Ton Dortmans, EVP KLM Engineering & Maintenance “In May 2014 we began to develop our GEnx capabilities, our 3-phase program was designed to train personnel, bring facilities to operational readiness, acquire the tooling, and deploy procedures as rapidly as possible. This meant we have been able to launch our offering in six months only, and the three phases of the program have all been finalized by EASA certification.”
