MTU Maintenance Canada has completed its move from Richmond, near Vancouver Airport, to Boundary Bay, Delta, British Columbia. The move provides the company with additional space of around 60 percent and consolidates all of its repair activities in one location.
“We are delighted to have now fully moved into our new home,” said Uwe Zachau, Managing Director and CEO, MTU Maintenance Canada. “Over the past two years, MTU Maintenance Canada has introduced the extremely popular V2500 and CF6-80C2 engine programs to its portfolio. In addition, the facility was highly successful in securing the military versions for these engines types, the F108 and F138 contracts from the United States Air Force. The additional space will help us ensure the success of these programs and give us the flexibility to perform highly-customized engine maintenance repair and overhaul for our customers.”
“Design and building upgrades as well the transition into our new Boundary Bay facility were mastered by our highly-motivated internal team on top of normal operations,” said Christian Ludwig, Chief Operating Officer and project leader. “Now that we are fully moved in, we look forward to using this new space to further strive for operational excellence.”
MTU Maintenance Canada holds licenses for work on the CF6, CFM56 and V2500 engine families. The new facility offers 237,000 square feet of space and is within thirty minutes of Vancouver airport, where testing continues to be carried out in the existing test cell. Alongside engine and accessory repairs, MTU Maintenance Canada also offers Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) management services that play an increasing role in MTU’s service offerings.
