EME Aero gets ready to induct its first Pratt & Whitney's GTF engine

EME Aero (Engine Maintenance Europe) is set to start up soon. The joint-venture formed by Lufthansa Technik and MTU Aero Engines in Poland to service Pratt & Whitney PurePower engines is due to start operations from the beginning of next year, with a first engine to be inducted in December.

Based at Rzeszow, in the heart of Poland's Aviation Valley, the new engine servicing centre is next to the MTU Aero Engines Polska factory which has just celebrated its 10th anniversary. It is the result of nearly 150 million Euro-worth of investment which is intended to capture a significant share of GTF's shop visits in Europe, particularly for PW1100G-JMs (Airbus A320neo family), PW1500Gs (A220 family) and PW1700G/PW1900Gs (Embraer E-Jets E2).

While EME Aero's activity will develop gradually with an initial capacity of around 40 inspections next year, in time the engine shop will become one of the cornerstones of Pratt & Whitney's worldwide support network for this family of engines, with its 40 000 m of shops and a capacity of over 450 annual inspections by 2025.

EME Aero is due to be certified soon by the German Federal Civil Aviation Office (LBA) to obtain its EASA and FAA approval. The Polish joint enterprise between Lufthansa Technik and MTU Aero Engines will then become the fourth engine servicing centre able to work on the PurePower family, after the MTU Maintenance sites in Hanover (PW1100G-JM) and Lufthansa Technik's in Hamburg (PW1100G-JM) and Alzey (PW1500G).

Outside Europe, Pratt & Whitney's GTF engine support network also has its sites at Columbus (Georgia) and West Palm Beach (Florida), its partner Japan Aero Engines in Tokyo, and its subsidiary Eagle Services Asia in Singapore with SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) since the start of the year. It has also had Delta TechOps since April.
