MTU Maintenance achieved a historic mark of 10,000 completed shop visits at its Hannover location in Germany, nearly half of the over 22,000 shop visits completed by the MTU Maintenance network. MTU Maintenance Hannover redelivered a GE90-110/115B engine to DHL Network Operations Ltd., the courier service’s United States-based aircraft operations with whom the MRO service provider has an exclusive fly-by-the-hour contract for that engine model.

During a celebration of the historic milestone, Jaap Beijer, Managing Director and Senior Vice President of MTU Maintenance Hannover, ceremonially handed over the engine to DHL and underscored the importance of the achievement. “This feat is the accumulation of more than 40 years in the daily pursuit of excellence,” Beijer says. “It is because of our collective effort, both here and across all MTU Maintenance locations, that we are trusted by industry leaders like DHL and continue to be the world’s number one independent engine MRO provider.” 

DHL’s Vice President of Fleet Management, Edward Jung, says that operating a fleet of 80 engines requires tailor-made services with many variables, for which MTU Maintenance, with its expertise and agility, is perfectly suited. “DHL operates in a demanding business environment and having MTU as our MRO partner makes us confident that we can run our operations smoothly,” says Jung.  “We congratulate everyone on this milestone.”

MTU Maintenance Hannover is MTU Aero Engine’s original MRO location and has been the centerpiece of the MTU Maintenance group since its foundation in 1979, with a focus on medium- and large-size commercial engines. More than 2,400 engine experts conduct close to 400 shop visits a year and the facility is MTU’s center of excellence for high-tech repairs, continuously developing novel repair techniques. In recent years, it has expanded its workshop area by 27,000m2 in order to accommodate an increase in future demand for capacity.
