In Singapore, Rolls-Royce works with SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) to ensure that each RR engine operated by their customers runs optimally.


The engine maintenance process is a complex, multi-stakeholder undertaking that currently relies on manual checks and paper records, or basic digital tools.  This results in some inefficiencies and  expenses.

For the stakeholders involved in this process, the use of blockchain can enable a more transparent and efficient real-time information-sharing platform. 

If you’re a blockchain startup or professional enthusiast who can build an innovative blockchain-powered solution to address the challenges in the engine maintenance process, join the Rolls-Royce Blockchain Innovation Challenge!

This is your opportunity to work with Rolls-Royce and SIAEC. 

Rolls-Royce has more than 400 airlines flying its cutting-edge aircraft engines. 


In the Rolls-Royce Blockchain Innovation Challenge, you will be studying the maintenance process of an aircraft engine, so you can propose where in the process your blockchain solution can support.  You should focus your use case demonstration on a particular activity or segment in the process.
