In Canada, Rolls-Royce is recognised for its expertise in both engineering and repair & overhaul in the Aerospace and Energy businesses. We are a diversified aero and industrial engine company employing 1,400 people at facilities in Montreal, Quebec and Vancouver, British Columbia. These facilities serve more than 600 operators in 30 countries worldwide, with customers that include airlines, corporate operators and government bodies.
The Montreal facility is the largest of seven Rolls-Royce Canadian sites. Its capabilities include repair & overhaul on civil and military aero engines, with over 5,000 engines serviced to date. The plant, which occupies more than 500,000 square feet, is equipped with five engine test cells, the largest of which can test up to 100,000 lbs of thrust. This site is also an authorised maintenance centre for the BR710, BR715, AE3007, Spey, Tay and V2500 engines, not to mention a centre of excellence for the repair of fan blades, combustion chambers and turbine vanes.
Rolls-Royce’s Energy business, which is also based in Montreal, is the worldwide research and development, manufacturing and support centre for the industrial Trent and RB211 gas turbines. These turbines are used for power generation and oil and gas applications in over 120 countries.
On the West coast, the Vancouver-based Marine Propulsion division manufactures steerable azimuth thrusters. These replace conventional propeller, rudder and reduction gearboxes with an integrated unit that performs both steering and propulsion functions.
