Rolls-Royce opens service delivery centre in Bengaluru
Co-located with the Rolls-Royce Engineering Centre, the SDC will offer localised engineering support to improve frontline capability of aircraft belonging to the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Indian Navy, and to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
The centre will provide defence customers in India with services such as fleet management, services engineering and supply chain co-ordination. It will also be the base from which Field Service Representatives can be rapidly dispatched to frontline bases, subject to contract coverage, to provide on-ground support.
With SDC, the company aims to deliver optimum support to over 750 aircraft engines which power the armed forces, including: the Adour, which powers both the Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer and the Jaguar; the Gnome engine, which powers the Sea King; and the Dart, which powers the Hawker Siddeley HS 748. It also provides coverage for AE2100 and AE3007 engines that power the C-130J and the Embraer 145, respectively.
