Rolls-Royce has unveiled a revamped service-centre network for its widely used Model 250 turboshaft and turboprop engines. The network has been reduced from 27 locations to 20, with one new member added - Hellenic Aerospace Industry in Greece.

The new network includes Rolls-Royce-owned facilities in Brazil, the Philippines and the USA; independent service centres in Australia, Canada, Japan, Malta, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, the UK and USA; and companies in Germany, Greece, Italy and Taiwan focused on providing indigenous support to military operators.

Existing authorisations were up for renewal, and network members have signed new six-year agreements setting increased customer-service requirements. Centres are supported by an updated network of repair facilities authorised to overhaul Model 250 modules, says Rolls-Royce.
