In Środa Śląska near Wrocław, Poland, Lufthansa Technik and GE Aviation have officially launched their new MRO facility, XEOS. The USD$250m state-of-the-art facility will overhaul GEnx-2B and GE9X engines.

Construction of the 32,500 sq. m. plant, a joint venture of the two companies, began in August 2017. Lufthansa Technik owns 51% of the venture, and GE Aviation 49%.

The GEnx-2B engines power Boeing's 747-8 aeroplanes. GE has developed the GE9X for Boeing’s new 777X twinjet series, with flight tests set to begin in early 2020. XEOS expects to begin servicing the GE9X in 2021. By 2023, the plant plans to be servicing 200 engines annually.

PM Group's Polish team of approx 50 people provided engineering design and construction management services for this development. The facility received its operational permit in December 2018.
