Rolls-Royce - Trent 700

TS&S Aerospace is the only independent Trent 700 Overhaul base in the world that is SABRe approved, the most stringent quality audit performed by Rolls-Royce. We have focused on modular split and repair since 2012 and continued to increase the volume of engines repaired year after year in line with predicted growth.

In March 2014, we obtained full overhaul capability, achieving targets set internally and in conjunction with Rolls-Royce, including releasing engines with fleet leading EGT margins. TS&S Aerospace will become the Middle East regional overhaul base for the Trent XWB which is a critical part of our future.

GEnx
GE90 (QEC)

Through our partnership with GE, we are one of only two independent GEnx overhaul bases in the world to date. The overhaul base is fully GE-audited and approved, and a sub-contractor to GE for global quick turn support.

TS&S Aerospace continues to be the only licensed GEnx repair station in the Middle East and one of five worldwide. The GEnx Hospital Shop Visit capability was achieved and today we continue to expand our experience and customer base, supported implicitly by GE.

Full GEnx overhaul capability is expected in 2018, including tier one supplier of manufactured parts.

In addition to the GEnx capability, we continue to overhaul our legacy product, the CF6-80C2 engines. We hold as much as 80 percent of in house repair capability, which we have built through our comprehensive history.

Most recently, Mubadala and GE announced a joint venture (JV) that will establish a dedicated GEnx parts logistics center through TS&S at the Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park.  The JV will expand our current GEnx capabilities and demonstrates our position as leading maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider for GEnx in the world.

IAE – V2500

TS&S Aerospace’s partnership with International Aero Engines (IAE) includes our accreditation as a   fully approved IAE Overhaul Base – the only repair facility in the Middle East region, which is also a sub-contractor to IAE for numerous global customers.

To date, we have repaired a significant number of engines, both third party and as a subcontractor for IAE and are continuing to expand our base load providing increased year on year experience.

In January 2013, we obtained complete airworthiness approvals with key regulatory agencies such as the FAA, EASA and GCAA.

We have been able to increase piece part repair capability, having completed more than 50 percent of accessible repairs to date and have an approved aggressive, yet achievable plan for the remaining repairs to be substantiated over the next two years.

In addition to our increasing capability, we have signed comprehensive agreements with all of the major OEM-approved suppliers for repairs that are not available to TS&S Aero or other MROs.

We offer flexible, price effective solutions providing competitive turnaround times and EGT margins through utilizing our strategic supplier base and consignment stock concept.
