EME Aero, the joint enterprise formed by Lufthansa Technik and MTU Aero Engines to take charge of engine maintenance for the PW1000G family, has acquired its site in Poland. The site is located at Jasionka (Aviation Valley), in the south east of the country, near Rzeszów airport. Construction work should start in May.

The two industrialists will be investing 150 million Euro by 2020, the year when the workshop should become operational. In time, it should be able to manage 400 inspections per year and employ 800 people.

"We have taken a major step forward in our plan to guarantee maintenance for a whole new generation of engines in Europe. We are delighted, especially as the location at Jasionka in Poland's Aviation Valley provides us with the ideal infrastructure for our new MRO company," says Derrick Siebert, the CEO of EME Aero.

Lufthansa Technik and MTU are both highly committed to Poland. The German engine manufacturer already has a factory in Aviation Valley, workshop which opened in 2009 and which was expanded in 2013, in particular to accommodate production of Pratt & Whitney's GTF low pressure turbine from 2015. As for Lufthansa Technik, it laid the first stone for another joint enterprise at Sroda Slaska in September, this time with GE. It will be in charge of maintenance for GEnx-2Bs followed by GE9Xs.
