Delta TechOps partners with Rolls-Royce to provide worldwide On-Wing Care Services

Delta TechOps has partnered with Rolls-Royce to provide worldwide On-Wing Care Services for various Rolls-Royce Trent engines. “This collaboration with Rolls-Royce expands our existing relationship and provides customers with round-the-world support from our expert field teams,” said Jack Arehart, V.P. — MRO Services.

Under this agreement Delta TechOps will provide engine line maintenance support services at remote sites for Trent 700, Trent 800, Trent XWB, Trent 1000 and Trent 7000 operators. The services range from entire engine removal and install, to video borescoping, fan blade changes and main gearbox replacement.

The Rolls-Royce On-Wing care network ensures the highest-level of service in locations that are convenient to its customers. On-Wing Care rapid response services maximize aircraft engine operational availability thereby minimizing potential impact to customer fleet schedules.

In October 2015, Delta and Rolls-Royce signed a formal agreement for Delta TechOps to become an Authorized Maintenance Center for Rolls-Royce engines. Under the agreement, the airline provides engine services for the latest generation Trent XWB, Trent 1000 and Trent 7000, in addition to the BR715, which had already been added to engine capabilities.

To further enhance engine maintenance capabilities, Delta TechOps has invested in other major projects. This fall, the maintenance provider opened its new 127,000-ft² state-of-the-art engine shop, which enables Delta to perform maintenance on engines with the most sophisticated and advanced technologies. At the end of the year, Delta TechOps will also open the largest test cell, with its first engines testing in early 2019. When it opens, the new test cell will be capable of safely running a mounted, stationary engine at full power with 150,000 pounds of thrust.
