(MENAFN - Arab News) Emirates, one of the world's fastest growing airlines, has announced the selection of Khansaheb Civil Engineering to build the Emirates Engine Overhaul Shop; a 225,000-sq. ft. engine maintenance facility for maintaining the GE90 and GP7200 engines that power Emirates aircraft.

Slated to be the most technologically-advanced Engine Overhaul Shop in the region, the facility will service the engines of the Emirates current fleet of nearly 150 Boeing 777s and Airbus 380s, as well as the additional 138 more of these aircraft types on order.

Currently under construction and scheduled to be operational in the second quarter of 2014, the Engine Overhaul Shop will provide Emirates with the maintenance capabilities needed to assure continued safe operation of the engines powering the majority of the Emirates fleet. Managed by General Electric International (GE), Inc.

and designed by US-based Burns and McDonnell Corp., the facility is valued at 100 million and will support the maintenance of up to 300 engines per year. Emirates partner, GE will oversee the design and construction of the Shop; utilizing the most advanced technology, equipment and industry best practices in managing engine repairs.

"Our new Engine Overhaul Shop will expand our ability to maintain and repair the thousands engines powering Emirates Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft.

With the rapid expansion of Emirates over the past few years and further rigorous expansion scheduled, Emirates needed a way to better control maintenance costs while assuring safe and efficient operation of our fleet," said Ali Mubarak Al-Sorri, Emirates executive vice president, Chairman's Office, Facilities, Construction & Design, Procurement Management and Procurement & Logistics Non Aircraft
