MTU Aero Engines to Provide MRO Services for PW1500G and PW1900G Engines

MTU Aero Engines and Pratt & Whitney signed an agreement to grow the company’s MRO capabilities for all Pratt & Whitney GTF engines currently in service.

MTU is positioned to supply overhaul services for two additional engine models: PW1500G for the Airbus A220 family and PW1900G for Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft. The contract further expands MTU’s role in the GTF MRO network beyond PW1100G-JM for the Airbus A320neo family.

In the future, EME Aero, a maintenance joint venture between MTU and Lufthansa Technik that is based in Rzeszów, Poland, will perform shop visits for PW1900G in addition to PW1500G. MTU is also a part of the Pratt & Whitney network for repair services. The contract is set to run over the lifespan of the engine program.

“We are delighted to expand MRO capacity for GTF engines through this cooperative initiative,” said Tom Pelland, senior vice president of GTF Engines at Pratt & Whitney. “We have a growing backlog of engine orders and see increasing demand for GTF engine family shop visits. By working with MTU, we know we have a team of experienced and reliable maintenance providers to help meet our global customers’ needs.”

“This cooperation is further expanding our great and intensive partnership with Pratt & Whitney and strengthens our position as a leading MRO expert,” said Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer of MTU Aero Engines. “EME Aero has already successfully concluded the first shop visit for a PW1500G engine and is industrializing to receive its first PW1900G engine. Customers benefit from our comprehensive experience with GTF engines and our clear focus on superior quality and maximum efficiency.”
