MTU Aero Engine URS

URS for new maintenance company together with Lufthansa Technik AG

MTU Aero Engines and Lufthansa Technik AG decided to establish a new maintenance centre for aero engine fans together. The partners both hold a share of 50 %.

OPM devised the URS (User Requirement Specification) for the Joint Venture to determine the requirements in regard to dimensioning, functional and room design as well as the size of the planned production facility. This includes the scope and allocation of the necessary equipment in the building layout.

Moreover, a test facility with a GFA of 46.000 sqm belongs to the newly built MRO shop as well. In 2020 the facility will start operating with more than 500 employees at the new location. The total investment amounts to ca. 150 m EUR.

During the initial stage OPM assisted both JV partners in the successful completion of the joint URS. This included that the BIM Master Model (Building Information Modelling) not only contains the requirements for the workshop building and its building services, but also the ones for the equipment showing their interfaces as preparation for the design and realisation process.

What distinguished us during the process? Where did the particular challenges lie?

  • Moderation and mediation between both project partners considering and focussing on the objectives defined at project start
  • Support in devising room and functional concepts to develop a production layout
