For Rolls-Royce Trent XWB Basic Engine Stand

The Basic Engine Stand for Trent XWB engines allows storage and local on-site movement and is available in two different configurations. One for bootstrapping, local transport and storage, and the second one for transport and storage only.

Product features

Absorbers for protection

Shock absorbers, shock absorbing and retractable castors, as well as a hydraulic leveling system isolate the engine from environmental vibration. They reliably protect the Trent XWB from any damage.

Time-saving and safe

The Basic Engine Stand is ready for bootstrapping of XWB engines, but can also be used in combination with our COBRA-system. The local transport is time-saving and safe: Integrated forklift tubes and forklift limiter allow a fast as well as safe maneuvering process.

Flexible and comfortable

For transporting purpose the Basic Engine Stand includes a tow-bar as well as rigging points. The trunnions can be safely stored in an integrated box. Optional lifting adaptor and a sling allow lifting and maneuvering of the stand either with or without an engine. A lot of different options are available and are easily retrofittable.

„I would like to take this opportunity to express my personal thanks and that of Virgin Atlantic, for an excellent professional piece of work that was carried out recently on one of our Trent 1000 Basic Engine Stands.
The challenges of the very tight time frame, the complexity of the task in hand and the organisation of the logistics, showed that your ability to respond to our requirements, was exceptional.
The professionalism and speed of the repair ensured that Virgin Atlantic did not encounter any delays to our Engine change programme."
