The aeroplane engine service centre is to be located in Lower Silesia
POLAND The foundation stone ceremony has taken place for the Xeos aeroplane engine service and repair centre in Środa Śląska in Lower Silesia, which is being developed in a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik AG and GE Airplane.Investment costs will come to PLN 1 bln.

“During the Paris Airshow in June 2015 the two global aviation industry leaders made the decision to establish one of the most modern aeroplane engine service and repair centres. Today we are realising this dream,” declared Thomas Böttger, the managing director of Xeos, at the ceremony.

“The choice of Poland as the location for the most modern airplane engine service and repair centre is no accident. Its well prepared infrastructure, but first of all its qualified labour force and stable political situation are major factors,” added Tadeusz Kościński, the undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Development.

The centre already employs 86 people and by the time of the launch of the production plant in spring 2019 it will have app. 140 members of staff eventually growing to 600. The company has earmarked PLN 60 mln for staff training sessions. Construction work on the app. 14 ha site started at the beginning of August, where the surface has been smoothened out and a substantial part of the foundation has been poured. The structural work is to start in mid-October. The lock-up stage of the plant is to be completed in March 2018 and the first equipment should be installed in the summer of the same year. The buildings are scheduled for delivery in December 2018, with the plan being for the first few engines to be service in spring 2019. The general contractor is Budimex with the general designer is PM Group.
