TS&S Aerospace Expands Regional Capabilities with GE
Increased capacity for the GEnx engine product line.
Abu Dhabi, UAE: Turbine Services & Solutions Aerospace LLC (TS&S Aerospace), a specialized and leading solutions, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider for aircraft engines in the Middle East, today announced that it has successfully performed services across more than 20 GEnx engines for various global airlines.
The announcement was made during MRO Middle East, the Gulf region's leading conference and trade show for commercial aircraft maintenance, taking place at Dubai World Trade Center – February 8-9.
TS&S Aerospace, located at its state-of-the-art facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport, has developed one of the most sophisticated independent original equipment manufacturer (OEM) MRO facilities for the GEnx product line. The GEnx capability was achieved by TS&S Aerospace in 2013 and since then has more than doubled the capacity and increased its investment in new tooling solutions.
TS&S Aerospace has emerged as one of only four GE Aviation licensed repair stations worldwide, and the only one in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Speaking on the sidelines of the MRO Middle East event, Abdul Khaliq Saeed, CEO at TS&S commented: “TS&S has long proven its position in the aerospace community as one of the most advanced but, crucially, independent MRO facilities, on a global front. We are pleased to work with GE to expand the nation’s aerospace credentials to provide the most expeditious service to many of the world’s leading airline brands."
The GEnx is one of the most advanced high-thrust jet engines within GE Aviation’s portfolio. The engine powers the four-engine Boeing 747-8 and is also the best-selling engine for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
TS&S Aerospace also partners with leading OEM, Rolls-Royce, and is the only independent Trent 700 overhaul base in the world, following capability establishment in late 2012. In 2016 it was announced that TS&S had reached a milestone via the induction of its 100th V2500 engine.
