Bondholder Rolls-Royce has opened a new data centre, which will help the aerospace firm monitor thousands of engines across the world.
The Airline Aircraft Availability Centre will plan engine operations, ensuring that Rolls-Royce powered aircrafts are available for service 24/7, with the right parts and people.
The new centre will help to increase engine efficiency, and potentially help to save thousands of dollars.
The centre will allow engineers to carry out complex tasks on the engine by remote control.
Tom Palmer, Senior Vice President – Services, Civil Aerospace, said: “We are entering a new era of digital connectivity and new services technology which allows us to greatly expand the type of services we can offer, with aircraft availability a key objective.
"As the industry services innovator, our Airline Aircraft Availability Centre incorporates the advances of today and tomorrow to support our vision of every Rolls-Royce powered aircraft taking off and landing on time, every time.”
