N3 has delivered the last Rolls-Royce Trent 500 engine after a regular overhaul under the current business model.
As the only remaining location in the Rolls-Royce network, the joint venture company of Lufthansa Technik and Rolls-Royce will maintain its capacity for the Trent 500 for the time being and continue to offer its services. Between 2007 and 2020 a total of 540 Trent 500 engines have been overhauled at N3.
The future, however, belongs to the latest and most modern engine type for long-haul, the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84k. The team has started to expand its capacity for the overhaul and repair of the Trent XWB – faster than planned. By next year ,the XWB is expected to form the majority of the overhauled engines at N3.
