The new Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 APS engine transportation stand
Transporting aero engines by air, land or sea is unfortunately necessary and very challenging, due to the complexity, size and weight of these jet engines. Rolls-Royce’s Trent 1000 engine weighs about 6 tones. So it needs dedicated and reliable equipment for safe transportation and peace of mind. That’s what HYDRO engine transportation stands are for.
Over the years, HYDRO has set the standard for safe engine transportation and was selected in 2010 to become the approved supplier of engine transportation stands for the Trent 1000 engine to Rolls-Royce and their customers.
At the end of last month, the second generation APS (All-Purpose Stand) for Trent 1000 started rolling off the production line in our facility in Auburn, WA, USA. This new transportation stand has a number of new features that will deliver increased value to our customers.
