The opening ceremony was attended by Jean-Paul Alary, CEO of Safran Aircraft Engines, Arnaud Feist, CEO of airport operator Brussels Airport Company, elected representatives from the local and regional levels in Belgium, and LEAP customers from around the world.

Safran Aircraft Engines has invested €24 million in the construction of the 8,500-square-meter workshop, which will round out its global MRO network and support the ramp-up of LEAP services activities. The majority of aircraft in the new-generation A320neo and B737 MAX single-aisle families are powered by LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines. The new site boosts Safran Aircraft Engine Services Brussels’ existing capability, which was established within the Brussels Airport Company ecosystem almost 25 years ago.

“We are delighted to expand our industrial footprint in the Brussels airport ecosystem, which offers a top-notch blend of skills and low-carbon infrastructure,” said Safran Aircraft Engines CEO Jean-Paul Alary. “This new site is a vital link in our global MRO network, helping to support the growing fleet of LEAP engines around the world while reducing our environmental footprint.”

“This ultra-modern construction marks an important milestone in our partnership with Safran, underlining our commitment to providing world-class infrastructure and services,” said Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport. “With advanced energy-efficient technologies and sustainable design, this new facility not only improves operational efficiency, but also reflects our commitment to a sustainable future.”

Safran Aircraft Engine Services Brussels (SAESB) was the first workshop in the world to be certified for maintenance of the LEAP-1A model, in 2016. Now with more than 75 years’ experience in MRO for aircraft engines, the firm kicked off operations in the new facility this year, and ultimately aims to ramp up its throughput to 120 shop visits annually. The new shop is also designed to the best environmental standards, and will be carbon-neutral thanks to its use of 100% renewable energy, with solar panels on the roof, and circular heating systems.

“We’re already working on an extension which will allow us to switch the maintenance of LEAP engine modules to the new workshop by the end of the decade, the aim being to reach a capacity of over 1200 modules per year. This activity is currently handled by our historic facility,” added Nicolas Potier, Vice President Support and Services at Safran Aircraft Engines. “This ramp-up in our engine and modules activities is underpinned by an ambitious plan to recruit more than 220 people, which will boost SAESB’s total headcount to 470 by 2027.”

The LEAP engine is a major commercial success, with over 7,500 units already in operation, totaling more than 50 million flight hours, and an order backlog that tops 10,600 units. In service some 150 operators around the world, the new-generation engine offers 15 20% reductions in fuel burn and CO2 emissions, and delivers significant improvements in noise levels compared with previous- 2 generation models. The LEAP engine was developed by CFM International, a 50/50 joint venture between Safran Aircraft Engines (France) and GE Aerospace (United States).
