Pratt & Whitney expands PurePower Geared Turbofan engine MRO network
Pratt & Whitney will widen its global network of providers that maintain the company’s revolutionary PurePower Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines to include Pratt & Whitney’s Eagle Services Asia (Pratt & Whitney Singapore Engine Center). The Singapore Engine Center will become one of Pratt & Whitney’s industry leading maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) providers located around the world that deliver high quality maintenance support to GTF engine operators including Pratt & Whitney, MTU Aero Engines, Japanese Aero Engines Corporation and Lufthansa Technik. The Pratt & Whitney Singapore Engine Center will provide engine maintenance for the PW1100G-JM. An estimated capital investment of nearly US$85m will outfit the facility with advanced capabilities such as an environment control system and an engine flow line system. Pratt & Whitney expects modifications to the facility to start in 2018, and GTF engine service to commence in 2019.
