Rolls-Royce is set to open a new engine depot services plant at Tinker Air Force Base in 2015.
The company was recently awarded a $49 million contract to convert an existing building to support the U.S. Air Force's Global Hawk fleet.
The facility will be the first for Rolls-Royce at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex. The operation marks the company's first public-private Partnership to provide engine services for the U.S. Air Force.
