If the condition of an older engine is found to be such that repair is no longer economical considering the number of operating hours left, an exchange engine with sufficient residual service life is an attractive option. An alternative to leasing and the Smart Repair offerings, this model is particularly suitable for operators looking for medium-term solutions.
Just like under a leasing arrangement, MTU Maintenance will provide the customer with an engine in the desired configuration and with an adequate remaining service life. In contrast to leasing, however, the customer acquires the exchange engine from MTU. Under the terms of an exchange arrangement MTU Maintenance buys the old engine and, as a parts dealer, sells components that are still in serviceable condition on behalf of the customer. Upon request, MTU Maintenance also offers financing solutions and exchanges the engine on wing.
- Smooth engine replacement and minimum downtime
- Fixed-price system for full cost transparency
- Value creation from parts that are no longer serviceable
