Pratt & Whitney, an RTX business, is to increase the capacity of its Singapore engine centre, Eagle Services Asia (ESA).
The 48,000 square-foot expansion will accommodate a two-thirds increase from the facility’s current capacity.
Shangari Meleschi, vice president, aftermarket operations – Asia Pacific and Turkey, said: “Pratt & Whitney is investing globally to support the GTF fleet. As part of the expansion, we will increase staffing and provide extensive staff training so that we are well equipped to meet the increased demand.
“We are dedicated to maintaining our customers’ trust as we work through the impacts of the GTF fleet management plan.”
ESA inducted its first PW1100G-JM engine for overhaul in 2019. It is a joint venture between SIA Engineering Company and Pratt & Whitney and a member of the Pratt & Whitney GTF MRO network that comprises of the industry’s leading MRO companies.
Since 2019, the GTF MRO network has more than doubled in size, with 13 currently active GTF MRO engine centres worldwide, and an additional six expected to be online by 2025.
The network is part of Pratt & Whitney EngineWise solutions, which provide engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services resulting in long-term, sustainable value.
