The department "Test facilities" in the DLR Institute Space propulsion is responsible for the overall management of different test and supply facilities for rocket engines, especially for the European launcher program. The main department?s missions are: operating and maintaining all respective test benches and supply facilities for cryogenic and stora-ble propellants. The maintenance includes all technical, management and administrative actions, which are realised in order to guarantee a complete nominal status of the rocket engine test benches and the entire technical infrastructure installations. Different kinds of maintenance activities (like preventive, continuous and corrective maintenance) are performed as well as the so called upgrade and renewal of assets. With respect to this context, the paper presents an overview of the test facilities and the different maintenance activities, followed by a detailed description of the systematic and organisation of 1) upgrading a system to comply with new or modified laws and regulations and of 2) renew-ing an asset due to obsolescence or non-availability of spare parts in the future. Some examples of realised upgrades (i.e. wrt explosion protection rules) and renewals (i.e. refurbishment of GN2 supply station) are presented and finally organisational aspects are described.
