HAESL’s Trent XWB project

Since officially opening its new four-storey Phase VI Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine overhaul facility in December last year, Hong Kong Aero Engine Services Limited (HAESL) has made good progress towards full operational capability.


The facility has now received approvals from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HKCAD), European Union Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the relocation of engine overhaul workshops and offices from Phase II to Phase VI has completed in Q2 2019.


HAESL now has full capability on the Trent XWB-84 and to date, has successfully completed overhauls on four engines of this type. Meanwhile, progress is being made on the development of capability for the Trent XWB-97 variant. While most of the specialised tooling required is available on-site, the next step is to complete personnel training by Rolls-Royce and obtain the relevant technical manuals. The first batch of HAESL engineering staff have already undertaken on-the-job training courses with Rolls-Royce at Derby, in the UK.


With the new Phase VI facility set to be in full operation in the near future, HAESL is well-prepared to provide best-in-class engine repair and overhaul services to its customers around the world.
