HAESL prepares for XWB

Hong Kong Aero Engine Services Limited (HAESL), the Group’s engine services facility in Hong Kong, is expanding to meet the needs of servicing the new Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine. HAESL is constructing a new four-storey, 13,000 square-metre building, which will house engine overhaul workshops, offices and training rooms. The new Phase VI facility is being constructed with optimisation of operational and material flow and sustainability in mind.


In addition to facility expansion, HAESL staff will receive On-the-Job Training on the engine strip and build activities in Rolls-Royce, Derby, UK later this year. Required tooling for the new engine type has been ordered, and two essential sets of test cell hardware, Special Purpose Test Equipment (SPTE) and the Test Adapter, were delivered in November, to enable test cell shakedown and cross-calibration for the new engine type.
