SIA Engineering (SIAEC) and Rolls-Royce have signed a 10-year agreement in which the MRO company will provide line maintenance and in-field services for Trent 7000, 1000, 900, 800, 700, 500 and XWB engines.
SIAEC will provide in-field services at its facilities for Rolls-Royce customers in Singapore including Singapore Airlines, supported by solutions through its global line maintenance network.
The new agreement is an extension of SIAEC’s existing on-wing care services with Rolls-Royce, covering on-wing support, borescope inspections, engine changes and engine build-up services for Trent 1000, 900, 800 and 700 engines. It will be expanded to include new capabilities for the Trent 7000 and Trent XWB engines.
“With this new agreement, SIAEC will be able to provide line maintenance and in-field services support for a wide range of Rolls Royce Trent-powered aircraft,” said SIAEC’s chief executive officer Ng Chin Hwee.
“It represents the continued growth of our engine MRO services under our Engine Services Division, which was set up earlier this year. We will continue our focus on bringing enhanced service value to our OEM partners and airline customers in engine MRO services.”
Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace’s services director Dominic Horwood commented: “We welcome this agreement with SIAEC, which will enhance our operational efficiency and allow us to provide our customer network with greater on-wing services support at a time when many airlines are seeing their fleets return to more robust levels of activity. Partnerships such as these help us help our customers as they recover from the impact of Covid-19 and continue to grow into the future.”
SIAEC noted that the transaction was not expected to have a material impact on earnings per share or net tangible assets per share for the financial year ending 31 March 2022.
