MTU Maintenance, global market leader in customized solutions for aero engines and valued customer Saudi Aramco celebrates the delivery of the facility’s 9,000th engine, a CFM56-7B from the Saudi Aramco fleet. The ceremony was carried out in a virtual ceremony between the two parties due to the on-going pandemic.

Saudi Aramco is the world’s largest listed and a state-owned petroleum and natural gas company based in Saudi Arabia. The company has been sending CFM56 engines to MTU Maintenance since 2004 and relies on MTU for excellent technical support and cost-efficient maintenance solutions for the specific requirements generated as a result of the harsh environment in which they fly. MTU Maintenance also supported Saudi Aramco’s CF34-8E engines before they were phased-out and has been taking care of their LM2500 industrial gas turbines since 2009.

“We are delighted to have achieved 9,000 shop visits and be able to share this special event with our long-term and valued customer Saudi Aramco,” adds Holger Sindemann, Executive Vice President MRO operations at MTU Aero Engines and Managing Director of MTU Maintenance Hannover. “We are engine experts and dedicated to achieving maximum performance and optimal engine life for our customer’s engines. We thank all our customers for their trust in us, without whom, we would have been unable to reach such a milestone.”

MTU Maintenance introduced the CFM56 family into its portfolio in 2000. As the number one independent CFM56 service provider worldwide with over 10 percent market share, the MTU Maintenance network has serviced well over 2,000 engines in the past twenty years. CFM56 Services are carried out at MTU Maintenance Hannover and MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, and MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg is in the process of introducing this engine to its portfolio, with the first induction expected this summer.
