Rolls-Royce facility takes flight
Singapore – Global power systems company Rolls-Royce has opened its largest Asian facility at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park capable of producing 250 engines per year at full capacity.
The 154,000 square metre campus is expected to hit the mark within the next two years, compared to its current Derby campus which produces 200 engines per year.
The S$700 million investment is projected to significantly increase the company's manufacturing capacity and proximity to customers in the Asia Pacific region.
Mike Terrett, chief operating officer of Rolls-Royce said the Seletar campus will allow the company to "produce [our] unique wide chord fan blades and assemble and test large commercial jet engines".
Lee Hsien Loong, Singapore's Prime Minister, said Rolls-Royce's new Singapore campus will enable Singapore to play a key role in supplying engines for aircraft, including the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The new facility includes an Assembly and Test Unit, a Wide Chord Fan Blade manufacturing facility, an Advanced Technology Centre and a Regional Training Centre.
