Geared Turbofan Engine MRO Network Features Top Companies And Global Reach

GTF MRO Network Is Part Of The EngineWise Service Portfolio

Pratt & Whitney has assembled a network of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies to service its Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines, which are currently being maintained by a network of the industry's top MRO companies. Those include 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.

"Operators can expect the highest level of aftermarket support from the GTF MRO network providers," said Eva Azoulay, vice president, Engine Services, Pratt & Whitney. "Today, the growing GTF network spans three continents, ensuring world-class quality service for every GTF customer, regardless of their location. We will continue to add capacity and experience as we see shop visits increasing over the next several years. These efforts truly are changing the global MRO landscape."

The GTF MRO network is part of Pratt & Whitney's EngineWise service portfolio, which provides engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services resulting in long-term, sustainable value.

"The advantage of EngineWise comes in our commitment to advance and integrate our engine expertise and fleet intelligence into service offerings for our customers," said Azoulay. "EngineWise allows our customers to optimize engine performance to keep their businesses running smoothly and efficiently."

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.
