N3 has delivered the last Rolls-Royce Trent 500 engine after a regular overhaul under the current business model. As the only remaining location in the Rolls-Royce network, the joint venture company of Lufthansa Technik and Rolls-Royce will maintain its capacity for the Trent 500 for the time being and continue to offer its services. Between 2007 and 2020 a total of 540 Trent 500 engines have been overhauled at N3.
The future, however, belongs to the latest and most modern engine type, the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84k, powering the Airbus A350. The team is currently expanding its capacity for the overhaul and repair of the Trent XWB and by next year the XWB is expected to form the majority of the overhauled engines at N3.
