AFI KLM E&M has announced that its Zephyr engine test cell unit team in Roissy-CDG ha successfully carried out a series of correlation tests for the GEnx-1B. Correlation involves comparing the engine's performance parameters with the reference measurements recorded on another test bench (here GE's for this engine).

Air France-KLM's MRO division added that for these tests, a stable performance engine provided by KLM was used in the test cell For almost a week.

The Roissy CDG test bench is now officiallyis now officially able to carry out the required engine test run after each maintenance shop visit carried out by the Amsterdam engine shop.

For AFI KLM E&M, this new development expands in-house processing capacities on the 787 engine. Around ten operators of this type of engine already entrust it with the maintenance of their GEnx-1B, with an offer covering under wing support, servicing, part replacement, replacement of an increasing number of elements and, now, engine tests.

Air France-KLM's MRO division also indicated that it was currently developing new repairs for this engine (combustion chamber, high pressure rotor) and that a first performance restoration inspection should be carried out before the end of the year at Schiphol.

"In terms of our offer and expertise, we clearly have a head start on the GEnx-1B maintenance market", emphasises Fabrice Defrance, Senior Vice President Commercial AFI KLM E&M. "We are the first airline/MRO to have mastered this product, with a broad experience of more than 40 quick turns of which the majority was operated by airlines operating in severe engine operation conditions" he added.
