N3 Engine Overhaul Services
Specialist for Rolls-Royce Trent
N3 Engine Overhaul Services (N3) is the European competence center for the maintenance and repair of Rolls-Royce Trent engines and their components. The company also has one of the world's largest and most powerful engine test stations.
The name of the joint venture with Rolls-Royce plc, "N3", is derived from the three waves that Rolls-Royce turbofan engines have, and at the same time it represents the company's product profile: the repair and overhaul of these engines. The current portfolio encompasses Trent 500, 700, 900 and XWB engines, used to power the Airbus A330, A340, A350 and A380 — currently the world's largest passenger aircraft.
N3 is integrated in the global Rolls-Royce network, consisting of operative sites in Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Within this network and, indeed, throughout the aviation industry, N3 quickly established itself and earned a strong reputation. Dependable delivery, excellent quality and oustandingly well-trained personnel have enabled N3 to prevail in the competitive international market, so that the company can now claim more than 40 international airlines from all over the world as established long-term customers.
A great milestone in difficult times
The first Rolls-Royce Trent XWB refurbishment engine has successfully passed the engine test. "A great and important milestone in these difficult times, which the N3 team is very proud of," Managing Directors Nicole Fehr and Stefan Landes are pleased to say. In 2020, N3 had to adapt more quickly than planned to a change in the portfolio towards the Trent XWB: in June, we delivered the last Rolls-Royce Trent 500 engine for the time being after a regular overhaul in the previous business model. But the future, belongs to the latest and most modern engine type for long-haul, the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84k. This year, a total of 40 Trent XWB engines are already to be processed .
