Magnetic Engines in Tallinn, Estonia, has more than doubled the size of its aircraft engine shop. With the expansion, the shop has grown from 300 sq m (3,229 sq ft) to more than 1,000 sq m (10,764 sq ft). The larger facility provides for more shop and office space, as well as engine and engine components storage.
“This is, indeed, an important strategic step for Magnetic Engines,” said executive sales director Alexey Ivanov. “Moreover, it is welcome news for our customers, too, as we had experienced a surge in demand for a while now. Thus, the ability to serve more customers and offer increased flexibility is just a natural way to fulfill the requests from customers who entrust their assets with us.”
Magnetic Engines also has more space to complete “Lego projects,” in which the company assembles a serviceable engine using modules of engines that are no longer serviceable. “Such a concept was popular for years on the CFM56-3 and now gaining popularity on CFM56-7B/-5B engines,” Ivanov added. With the increased space, the company also plans to add new tooling and offer room for customers to store their engines before or after repair.
