Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), has assembled a world-class, global network of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies to service its game-changing Geared Turbofanâ¢ (GTF) engines, the company said.
GTF engines are currently being maintained by a network of the industry´s top MRO companies, including Pratt & Whitney, MTU Aero Engines (MTU), Japanese Aero Engines Corporation (JAEC) and Lufthansa Technik (LHT). As engine volume grows, the network will continue to expand to include other worldwide airline and MRO facilities.
The GTF MRO network is part of Pratt & Whitney´s EngineWiseâ¢ service portfolio, which provides engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services resulting in long-term, sustainable value.
Pratt & Whitney´s Columbus Engine Center in Columbus, Georgia, USA, became the first GTF engine MRO facility to maintain Geared Turbofan engines in 2016. In addition, Pratt & Whitney´s Eagle Services Asia facility in Singapore expects to begin servicing PW1100G-JM engines next year.
