Rolls-Royce introduced a new Trent XWB Engine Change Service, with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (“HAECO Hong Kong”) as its launch partner.

The service enables Rolls-Royce customers to access its OEM expertise and supplier network, with Rolls-Royce acting as a one-stop shop to organise labour, parts and/or tooling for any Trent XWB engine change event.

Offered on a time and material basis, Rolls-Royce customers are able to request a quote for their engine change event requirements from its 24/7 Aircraft Availability Centre, be that a home base or remote site location.
HAECO Hong Kong has been selected as the first service provider to support Rolls- Royce in delivering the Engine Change Service, providing established capabilities and a long-standing relationship with Rolls-Royce.

Lee McConnellogue, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Aircraft Availability Services, Civil Aerospace, said: “We are constantly looking at ways we can further improve aircraft availability and this service gives us additional capability to do just that. We wanted to launch with a partner who has a heritage of delivery and engineering expertise and HAECO Hong Kong fits that requirement perfectly.”

Patrick Wong, HAECO Hong Kong’s Executive General Manager, Line Services, said: “We are looking forward to working with Rolls-Royce on this new service. We know airlines are looking for efficiency improvements that get their aircraft back in service faster, and that is what we can offer.”

Rolls-Royce plans to continue to develop the service over time by creating a global network of service support providers, full integration with the CareStore services, including Foundation Services, and expansion of the service coverage to initially the Trent 7000 engine family, and potentially across the full Trent engine family.

Established in 1950, HAECO Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading independent aircraft engineering and maintenance groups. It is one of the largest independent Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul service providers in terms of capacity.
