MTU begins Serbia plant construction


Leading German aircraft engine manufacturer MTU Aero Engines began construction of its new repair facility at an industrial park near Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport yesterday. At the new site in Nova Pazova MTU Maintenance Serbia, a wholly owned subsidiary of MTU, will focus exclusively on the repair of commercial engine parts. MTU plans to start operations at the end of 2022. “Commercial maintenance business accounts for more than 60% of our business volume - and the trend is rising. The new facility in Serbia will add efficiency to our high-performance network of MRO locations in Europe, Asia and North America”, Michael Schreyogg, MTU Aero Engines' Chief Program Officer, said. He added, “The ramp-up of this additional capacity in Serbia is an essential element in our ability to offer competitive services in the global market. MTU stands for quality and reliability among partners and customers. The basis for this is professional training and development, which has been the focus of our efforts in Serbia since the beginning of our project. We greatly appreciate the excellent support and partnership of the Serbian government”. Over the past two years, MTU has worked with the Serbian Ministry of Education to develop the Aviation Academy in Belgrade into a leading training center for aviation professions. In line with the quality standards of the aviation industry, job profiles specially tailored to engine technology were implemented as early as September 2020, and the first MTU Maintenance Serbia specialists have now been trained. Additionally, employees are also already learning additional skills in on the job training at MTU locations in Germany and Poland. At present, MTU Maintenance Serbia has more than 60 employees on board. Over the next few years, the number of employees at the site is expected to grow to around 500. MTU Maintenance and Air Serbia signed an exclusive V2500 engine maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) contract last year. The six-year agreement covers MRO, engine trend monitoring and spare engine services for Air Serbia’s v-powered A319 and A320 aircraft fleet.
