Demand for PW1100G-JM Engine Drives MHI Factory Investment

: Nov 14, 2019 - : 2:16 am

Rising demand for the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM is the key reason for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) setting up an advanced factory at Nagasaki to exclusively build the combustor for the engine, which is used on the Airbus A320neo family.
When peak production is reached after 2021, output of the combustor will be 1.5 times as great as MHI is achieving at its main aero-engine plant at Komaki, a company representative said.
MHI plans to build its aero-engine manufacturing business into a core activity for the whole group, not just for the aerospace segment.
