Delta TechOps achieved a major milestone by completing the first shop visit and test of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engine at its state-of-the-art Technical Operations Center in Atlanta. As a powerplant option for Boeing 787 aircraft operators, the test marks the first production of this model through Delta TechOps’ maintenance facility.
During the shop visit, the engine was disassembled to replace high-pressure turbine systems and blades and several reliability improvement service bulletins were incorporated. To successfully pass the test, the engine had to meet multiple performance parameters such as thrust, balance and temperatures.
Prior to the engine visit, many departments within Delta TechOps worked in tandem with onsite support partners from Rolls-Royce to complete the first production of this model.
