Changes in the product portfolio at N3 Engine Overhaul Services

  • N3 becomes volume shop for the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84k but also remains the only shop for the Trent 500 worldwide

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 even though will maintain its capacity for the Trent 500 for the time being and continue to offer its services. As Trent 500 Volume Shop N3 has a lot of experience. 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. With great energy and enthusiasm the team is now starting 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.
