A second maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility for the PW800 engine will open in Germany in 2024 in cooperation with long-time collaborator MTU Aero Engines. Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has said.

The new MRO facility will be located in Berlin-Brandenberg to enable PW800 MRO by 2024.

“This is another way we are striving to meet the MRO needs of our customers around the globe,” said Irene Makris, vice president, Customer Service at Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We are delighted to be collaborating with MTU on this new MRO facility. We have been working with MTU for more than three decades and have collaborated on many projects, including on the development of the low-pressure turbine and high-pressure compressor for the PW800 engine.”

“We always welcome the opportunity to expand our working relationship with Pratt & Whitney in our ongoing efforts to serve our common customer base,” said Dr. Ottmar Pfänder, SVP Commercial Programs, MTU Aero Engines. “We have worked with Pratt & Whitney Canada on the PW300 engine family since 1985 and we also became involved in the PW800 at the development stage of the program.”

The PW800 engine powers the Gulfstream G500 and G600, which entered service in 2018 and 2019 respectively, and it was selected to power the G400. The engine also powers the Dassault Falcon 6X, which is expected to enter into service soon. The collaboration with MTU builds upon a P&WC $30 million investment in its Bridgeport, West Virginia, facility to create the first PW800 MRO.
