MTU Maintenance launches ON-SITEPlus, a larger group of on-site, near-wing and quick-turn services. This development and rebranding of the portfolio underscores the importance of on-site and near wing activities as a means to reduce maintenance cost and extend on-wing times – a trend that has been particularly prevalent during the COVID-19 crisis and is expected to continue as the industry recovers post-pandemic.
MTU Maintenance’s growing ON-SITEPlus team carries out AOG support, on- and near-wing repairs from borescope inspections to module swaps as well as hospital shop visits for a large engine portfolio, including the popular CF6, CF34, CFM56, GE90, LEAP, and V2500 engines. The company has six on-site facilities across the globe and over 120 authority approvals.
Its largest ON-SITEPlus facility MTU Maintenance Dallas, which can dispatch teams to customers or provide workscopes up to hospital shop visits, has recently expanded its available dock space by 40,000 ft² to provide short and long-term engine storage to support customer needs. MTU Maintenance Dallas is an MTU center of excellence for on-site and quick turn repairs for CF34, CF6, CFM56, GE90, V2500, PW2000 and PW4000 engines on the American continent.
