Rolls-Royce says tripling capacity to fix Trent 1000 engine problems

Britain's Rolls-Royce said it would add maintenance facilities and people to triple its capacity to fix problems with Trent 1000 engines that have grounded Boeing Dreamliner planes, but said this would not raise the cost of the work.
The compressor in the Trent 1000 package C engines that power Boeing's 787 Dreamliner jet is not lasting as long as expected, requiring inspections and forcing airlines to ground aircraft while the checks take place.
About 30 of the affected aircraft, flown by airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Air New Zealand, are grounded at any one time for checks, Rolls has said, and this is expected to peak at around 50 as inspections intensify as the deadline looms.
