SIA Engineering has entered a 10-year agreement with Rolls-Royce PLC to provide line maintenance and in-field services for certain engines for Rolls-Royce’s customers in Singapore, including Singapore Airlines, the aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service provider said in a filing to SGX Tuesday. 

Ng Chin Hwee, SIA Engineering’s CEO said in the statement: 

“With this new agreement, SIAEC will be able to provide line maintenance and in-field services support for a wide range of Rolls-Royce Trent-powered aircraft. It represents the continued growth of our engine maintenance, repair and overhaul services (MRO) under our Engine Services Division, which was set up earlier this year. We will continue our focus on bringing enhanced service value to our OEM partners and airline customers in engine MRO services.”

The new agreement extends SIA Engineering’s existing on-wing care services with Rolls-Royce, including On-Wing Support, Borescope Inspections, Engine Changes and Engine Build-Up services for the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000, 900, 800 and 700 engines, which will be expanded to include new capabilities for the Trent 7000 and Trent XWB engines, the filing said. 

Dominic Horwood, services director for Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace, said the deal will improve his company’s operational efficiency and allow it to provide its customers with greater on-wing services support as many airlines are seeing greater activity levels. 

SIA Engineering provides aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services in the Asia-Pacific region. The company provides line maintenance services at more than 25 airports across seven countries, and offers airframe and component services on commercial aircraft.
