“Another key milestone”: Delta TechOps completes first shop visit and test of Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engine

Delta TechOps MRO has completed the first shop visit and test of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engine at its maintenance facility in Atlanta.

During the visit, the engine was disassembled to replace high pressure turbine systems and blades, and several reliability improvement service bulletins were incorporated.

“The successful test of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engine is a great achievement for Delta TechOps, and we’re proud of our world-class team and our Rolls-Royce support partners for their hard work to further our engine programs,” said Delta’s vice president – maintenance operations and Delta material services – Mike McBride.

“This is yet another step that advances our MRO offerings and capabilities, and TechOps will continue enhancing our next-generation engine types for our MRO customers worldwide.”

Prior to the engine visit, departments within Delta TechOps worked in tandem with onsite support partners from Rolls-Royce to complete the first production of the Trent 100 TEN model.

In 2020, Delta TechOps team members participated in virtual differences training on the Trent 7000 High Pressure system that reads across to the Trent 1000 TEN model.

Rolls-Royce’s senior vice president – service delivery – Paul Keenan said: “We are delighted to celebrate another key milestone in the engine overhaul capability for the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN, which adds to the existing portfolio of Trent products within Delta TechOps.

“The whole programme delivery for this product, which has been during a challenging year due to the pandemic, is a testament to our collective teams’ determination, underpinned by a collaborative partnership focused on supporting our growing Trent fleet.”

In October 2015, Delta and Rolls-Royce signed a formal agreement for Delta TechOps to become an authorised maintenance centre for the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000, Trent 7000, Trent XWB and BR715 engines.
