MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, a joint venture between MTU Aero Engines and China Southern Airlines, has completed its facility expansion to increase existing capacity by 50% to 450 shop visits per year and adding 13,600 m² as well as employee sport and parking facilities. Teams will start moving into the office buildings from December and the shop will ramp up initially to full capacity as market demand increases post COVID-19 crisis.
“We’re extremely confident in the recovery of the Chinese and Asian market region, as underlined by our commitment to building a second facility in the region announced earlier this week,” says Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines. “Despite a slow second quarter, MTU Maintenance Zhuhai is back operating at nearly 100% and assuming this trend continues, we’re very optimistic about 2021 at the facility.”
The shop just completed its 3,000th engine, a V2500 from its joint venture partner.Email Post to a Friend
