MTU Maintenance celebrates 25 years of V2500 engine maintenance

Posted 30 October 2014 · Add Comment

MTU Maintenance is celebrating 25 years of engine MRO on IAE's V2500, the world's bestselling engine powering the A320 aircraft family.

MTU Maintenance’s parent company MTU Aero Engines is part of IAE with a 16 percent share. It has developed and manufactures various parts of the low pressure turbine. 

“For MTU, the V2500 has been and will continue to be our most important commercial engine program”, said Dr. Stefan Weingartner, president MTU Maintenance and member of the Executive Board at MTU Aero Engines. “Up until today, more than 6,000 V2500s have been delivered to over 200 customers around the world. The success of this engine also drives considerable revenues in our maintenance and spare parts business. We are very proud of our success and are looking forward to continue our fruitful collaboration with IAE in the future.”

Simultaneously with the first V2500 entering into service in 1989, MTU Maintenance started offering overhaul services for the engine at its location in Hannover, Germany. Today, about one third of all shop visits are performed by MTU Maintenance, either in Hannover or at its facility in Zhuhai, China. MTU Maintenance thus ranks number one worldwide for MRO work on this engine type. So far, the company has handled about 3,700 shop visits and serves around 50 V2500 operators and leasing companies around the globe. 

V2500 customers benefit from MTU’s high-tech repair processes, a considerable amount of which are developed in-house and are patented under the brand name MTUPlus repairs. In addition, MTU Maintenance offers customised service packages, including on-wing and on-site services, accessory and LRU management, engine condition monitoring, engineering support as well as lease services via its newly founded MTU Maintenance Lease Services B.V. All offers can be combined individually under the modular service package Total Engine Care (TEC), which guarantees operators cost-effective and fully tailored solutions for their engine needs. 

MTU Maintenance is confident that it will continue to perform maintenance services on the V2500 for many years to come. “Despite the fact that the PW1100G will enter into service next year on the A320neo, the number of V2500 engines in service is expected to increase to 6,000 by the end of the decade”, added Weingartner. “Reason enough for us to stay optimistic and continue our excellent services.”
