A Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine powering an Airbus A380 of Korean operator Asiana Airlines is the 1.000th aircraft engine that has undergone maintenance in the workshops of N3 Engine Overhaul Services (N3) in Arnstadt, Germany. The joint venture of Lufthansa Technik and Rolls Royce has been in operation for 11 years and currently employs over 700 people. "This is another significant milestone of our German-British success story" says Nicole Fehr, Director and General Manager. "With this experience and over 40 international airline customers we are now an inherent and mature partner within the global Trent MRO network". The capacity of the modern plant with its own test facility is between 150 to 200 engines per year. Besides being the repair and overhaul experts for Trent 500, Trent 700, Trent 900 and most recently the XWB, N3 also continues to grow its engine component repair capabilities. N3 is currently training over 50 young people to become engine specialists and logistics experts.
