OGMA strengthens collaboration with Pratt & Whitney on GTF engine maintenance

Contract signing between OGMA and ©Pratt&Whitney

OGMA, an Embraer Group company, has signed a new contract with Pratt & Whitney that reinforces the collaboration between the two companies, which began a year ago. This agreement ensures that OGMA will provide maintenance for the PW1900G engine that currently powers the Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft.

In November of 2020, OGMA was announced as an authorised maintenance facility for Pratt & Whitney, one of the world’s largest aircraft engine manufacturers. At that time an agreement was formalised that allowed the Portuguese company to launch industrialisation and training to service the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ PW1100G-JM engine. This year, that capability is expanding to include the PW1900G engine.

This was the culmination of a project developed by OGMA, with the support of Embraer, which allowed OGMA to expand its scope of activity in the engine maintenance area, marking the entry of Pratt & Whitney’s maintenance, repair and overhaul area in Portugal.

Throughout the project, with a greater impact between 2022 and 2023, the creation of around 300 direct highly skilled jobs is expected. And with this new contract from 2027, it is expected the creation of about 200 more jobs.

OGMA is investing a total of €80 million, mostly in the first four years of the project, in a strategic step that will allow the company to broaden its scope of activity in the engine maintenance area, capture new business over the coming decades and triple the company’s turnover, reaching the €600-million-per-year level. Over the 30-year term of the contract between OGMA and P&W, more than €13 billion in revenue is expected. (£1.00 = €1.19 at time of publication)
