Pratt & Whitney’s Singapore Engine Center named center of excellence for GP7200 low pressure compressor overhauls
As a center of excellence, ESA will be responsible for disassembly, assembly and balancing of the LPC, which involves maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) for the five-stage low-pressure compressor, fan hub, drum, blades and stator assembly. ESA already performs heavy maintenance on GE90 and PW4000 engines, the two designs which formed the foundation of the GP7200 engine.
“We are excited to offer maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the GP7200 engine LPC,” said Kevin Kirkpatrick, executive director, Pratt & Whitney Aftermarket Operations, Singapore & Taiwan and managing director, ESA. “The GP7200 and PW4000 engines’ LPC modules have a lot in common. That’s why this work is a natural fit for us. This will make for timely, cost-effective and world-class MRO services.”
