MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, a joint venture between MTU Aero Engines and China Southern Airline Company limited, has announced plans to establish a second facility in the neighboring Jinwan district. The facility is to be called MTU Maintenance Zhuhai Co., Ltd. The Jinwan facility will have an initial annual capacity of 250 shop visits and expects to enter operations in 2024. The purchase of a 150,000 m² plot of land has been agreed with local government and the project will now enter the detailed planning and construction stages.
MTU Maintenance Zhuhai Co., Ltd. The new facility will also focus on Pratt & Whitney engines for narrow-body jets with its own 65,000 lbf test cell and, according to current estimates, a workforce of around 600 qualified employees. “It’s close proximity to MTU Maintenance Zhuhai will enable significant knowledge transfer and synergies between the two facilities,” said Jaap Beijer, President and CEO of MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, who will be managing the two sites upon completion. The new facility will operate under MTU Maintenance Zhuhai and its licenses and approvals.Email Post to a Friend
