Pratt & Whitney Singapore Engine Center Celebrates 7,000th Engine Delivery

Joint Venture With SIA Engineering In Operation More Than 30 Years

Pratt & Whitney on Thursday announced its Singapore engine center celebrated more than 30 years of operations with the milestone delivery of its 7000th overhauled engine. Since beginning operation, the Singapore engine center has delivered 3,730 PW4000 series of engines (that power Airbus A300, A310 and A330 aircraft family as well as Boeing 747, 767, 777 and MD11 aircraft), 174 CFM56 engines (that power Airbus A340 aircraft), 47 GE90 engines (that power Boeing 777 aircraft) and 3,049 JT9D series of engines (that power Boeing 747-100 aircraft).

A joint venture between Pratt & Whitney and SIA Engineering Co., the engine center also recently surpassed the US-billion-dollar revenue mark. Growing from its beginnings to support Singapore Airlines' (SIA) 747 fleet, the engine center today maintains a diverse portfolio of customers from around the world – with approximately 50 percent from the Americas, 40 percent from Asia Pacific and the remaining from Africa, Europe and Middle East.

"This milestone delivery of 7,000 engines is a substantial accomplishment," said William Kircher, Pratt & Whitney's Singapore Overhaul and Repair vice president. "We are pleased our Singapore engine center has accomplished this feat, demonstrating it has developed world-class service excellence, is able to provide high quality engine repair and overhaul services, and wins customers from all over the world."

"We're also thankful for the support from the Singapore government over these years. We hope to see many more milestones from the Singapore engine center, and look forward to working closely with Singapore as we continue to grow our presence on the island."

The Pratt & Whitney Singapore engine center, Eagle Services Asia Pte Ltd (ESA), currently maintains a capacity to overhaul up to 300 jet engines annually and employs close to 900 employees. As part of Pratt & Whitney's Global Service Partners network providing large commercial engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to customers worldwide, the engine center is equipped with extensive part repair capacity that helps reduce engine overhaul costs and turnaround times.

ESA first began operations in 1981 as Singapore Engine Overhaul Center (SEOC), a division of SIA Engineering Company, following the incorporation of Singapore Airlines' engine overhaul division. At the same time, it relocated from Paya Lebar to a small building to be strategically adjacent to Changi International Airport to support the airline's then fleet of JT9D engines. In 1998, it entered into a joint venture with Pratt & Whitney.

Since then, it has grown to a 655,000 square-feet (more than 60,000 square meters) footprint. It also expanded its capabilities to become the Center of Excellence for the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engine series, while having grown its customer base to serve other aircraft operators. Today, the engine center serves a diverse and global mix of the world's leading airlines, low cost carriers and air-cargo operators.
