Rolls-Royce opens defence SDC in UK

22nd June 2017 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rolls-Royce has opened a new service delivery centre (SDC) at Royal Air Force Lossiemouth in Scotland, the company announced on 19 June.

Established in partnership with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and the UK Ministry of Defence, the SDC will support the resident fleet of Typhoon aircraft.

From the centre the company will deliver tailored support services for the Typhoon aircraft’s Eurojet EJ200 engines. Rolls-Royce provides engine availability and readiness for the EJ200 fleet under a MissionCare contract.

The SDC can also use live video links to Rolls-Royce's operations centre in Bristol, enabling faster decision making on engine issues to further increase aircraft availability.

The new centre uses a support system that puts engineering and services staff on-base, working closely and collaboratively with the service to increase efficiency and communication.
