Pratt & Whitney has announced that OGMA, an Embraer Group company and member of the Pratt & Whitney network of global maintenance providers, will add the PW1900G engine model to its GTF MRO capability.
The expansion was recognised at an in-person signing ceremony with Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa, Embraer’s CEO Francisco Neto, and Pratt & Whitney’s GTF MRO leaders Marc Meredith and Shornda Cadore.
The PW1900G engine currently powers the Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 aricraft.
Commenting on the agreement, OGMA’s CEO Alexandre Solis said: “This strengthening of the collaboration with Pratt & Whitney is the recognition of a collaboration that began a year ago between two companies that strive for excellence and quality in their products. It is also an appreciation of the commitment and experience of our teams.”
“We are pleased to see OGMA’s role as a member of our GTF MRO network expand to encompass the PW1900G,” said Pratt & Whitney’s executive director of GTF engine aftermarket Marc Meredith.
“The relationship between Pratt & Whitney, Embraer, and OGMA has been invaluable, and we are confident that OGMA’s skill and experience will be a tremendous asset to the network as we continue to support our growing global fleet of GTF engines with world class service.”
OGMA was announced as an authorised maintenance facility for Pratt & Whitney in November 2020 to provide MRO services for the PW1100G-JM engine for the Airbus A320neo aircraft family at its facility in Alverca, Portugal.
