Vector Aerospace to overhaul T56 engines
Vector Aerospace has signed a contract with an unnamed European nation to overhaul the customer's Rolls-Royce T56 turboprop engines, the company announced on 19 January.
The multi-year contract will see Vector Aerospace carry out work to overhaul T56 engines, modules, components and accessories.
Simon Jones, vice president business development at Vector Aerospace, said: ‘This success once again highlights Vector Aerospace’s position as an industry-leading Rolls-Royce Authorised Maintenance Centre for the T56 engine family, and further strengthens our global position within the market.
'Our comprehensive range of in-house repair schemes for high-cost engine components, combined with our competitive rates and turnaround times, ensures that we can deliver a product which meets our customers’ budget expectations without sacrificing quality.’
The Rolls-Royce T56/501-D engine powers a range of military aircraft, including the C-130 Hercules transport family, P-3 Orion anti-submarine warfare platform, and the E-2 Hawkeye early warning aircraft.
