Delta TechOps, has new engine shops opening this year to help optimize repair processes and save costs, the company says. Two shops at the top of their list include the Life Limited Parts (LLP) shop and brand-new Geared Turbo Fan (GTF) Engine Shop.
The LLP shop will open at the end of the June and will industrialize not only the legacy engine lines we work, but the Geared Turbofans and the Rolls-Royce Trent engine lines.
The new GTF shop is currently under construction and scheduled to be complete at the end of 2022, with our first PW1500 line in the new shop slated to begin early next year. At 155,000 square feet and expansion opportunities for an additional 50,000+ square feet, the new shop allows us to perform engine maintenance on the most sophisticated and advanced technologies. When the shop is up and fully running, it will support the repair of more than 300 GTF engines a year, across the PW1100 and PW1500 platforms.
