Lufthansa Technik will expand the worldwide network of specialized repair stations for its innovative Mobile Engine Services with a fifth location. Located in the major center of the EMEA aircraft leasing community and close to the company's airline customers in the British Isles, the new facility in Dublin will commence operations in early October. This doubles the number of European repair stations for Lufthansa Technik's smart surgical engine repair solutions. These solutions extend an engine's time-on-wing and, during these times of crisis, enable airlines to postpone or even avoid cash-intensive major overhaul shop visits for their valuable assets.  The new facility will have five repair bays covering 600 square meters of floor space and will employ more than 20 engine mechanics. The availability of such highly skilled technicians, with more than 20 years of experience on average, was one of the critical factors in choosing Dublin as a location. The new repair station will begin operations with InFIELD and InSTATION services for the CFM56-5B engines used in the Airbus A320ceo family and the CFM56-7B engines powering the Boeing 737 Next Generation.  

Presenting the opportunity to avoid or postpone major overhaul events, Lufthansa Technik's Mobile Engine Services comprise a broad portfolio of smart engine repair solutions. These range from on-wing and on-site services (inFIELD) performed by Airline Support Teams (AST®) directly at the customer's location to surgical repair solutions, derived from the customer's required workscope and carried out in a global network of five repair stations (InSTATION). In addition to the new repair station in Dublin, these are located in Montréal (Canada), Tulsa (Oklahoma/USA), Frankfurt (Germany), and Shenzhen (China). Mobile Engine Services in the various locations have already received authorizations from more than 40 international airworthiness authorities. 

"In these uncertain times, our goal is to support our customers' control of their cost exposure to engine maintenance and to optimize the operational life of their engines and engine components. This is the smart solution in times of ‘cash is king'," said Michael Kirstein, Vice President Engine Parts Repair and Mobile Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik. "The new repair station deepens our investment and belief in our network of Mobile Engine Services, signaling Lufthansa Technik's strong commitment to help our customers through this unprecedented crisis."
