SR Technics is to join Pratt & Whitney’s global GTF MRO network.
The Zurich-based company will serve PW1100G-JM engines for the A320neo family with full disassembly, assembly and test capability.
Pratt & Whitney said it had received more than 10,000 engine orders and commitments from more than 80 customers for GTF engines, which now power more than 1,200 aircraft with 62 operators across three aircraft families.
“The GTF engine and its latest ‘GTF Advantage’ configuration serve as the most fuel-efficient and sustainable single-aisle aircraft engines in the aviation industry,” said Pratt & Whitney’s executive director of GTF engine aftermarket Marc Meredith. “With increasing engine orders, we continue to grow our MRO presence with capable, quality maintenance providers worldwide to ensure proximity and seamless service to our customers. We are excited to welcome SR Technics to this distinguished network of shops.”
SR Technics is the latest engine centre to be announced in Europe within the GTF MRO network, alongside MTU Aero Engines and two Lufthansa Technik facilities in Germany; EME AERO in Poland; and OGMA in Portugal.
“We are very excited to join the esteemed Pratt & Whitney GTF MRO network,” said SR Technics’ chief executive officer Jean-Marc Lenz. “This is a major cornerstone in our company development in line with our SR Technics strategy to extend our capabilities by providing maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for the GTF engine at our facilities in Zurich. By adding the PW1100G-JM engine we are not only broadening our product portfolio, but we are also expanding our highly skilled workforce and footprint in Switzerland.”
