Pratt & Whitney will expand its global network of providers that maintain the Pratt & Whitney GTF engine to include SR Technics. The Zurich-based facility will serve PW1100G-JM engines for the A320neo family with full disassembly, assembly and test capability. The announcement was recognized at an in-person signing ceremony in Zurich.

With more than 10,000 engine orders and commitments from more than 80 customers, GTF engines now power more than 1,200 aircraft with 62 operators across three aircraft families. To keep pace with the growing fleet, the GTF MRO network continues to expand around the globe.

“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 Marc Meredith, executive director of GTF Engine Aftermarket at Pratt & Whitney. “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 center 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 Jean-Marc Lenz, chief executive officer at SR Technics. “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.”

The expanding GTF MRO network is comprised of the industry’s leading MRO companies. There are currently 10 active GTF MRO engine centers worldwide. The GTF MRO network is part of Pratt & Whitney’s EngineWise solutions, which provide engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services resulting in long-term, sustainable value.
