GP7200 engine LPC Overhaul Center Established in Singapore
Posted: 2016 Mar 10

Pratt & Whitney’s Eagle Services Asia Pte Ltd (“ESA”), located in Singapore has been named by Engine Alliance (EA) as a center of excellence for GP7200 low pressure compressor (LPC) overhauls, in support of Airbus A380 operators. “With ESA, we continue to build on the strengths of our member companies,” said Dean Athans, president of the Engine Alliance. “Building the best engine for the A380 is just the start. We’re committed to service and support that are both cost-effective and world-class.”“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.” Disassembly, assembly and balancing of the LPC, will be handled by ESA as also the MRO work on the five-stage low-pressure compressor, fan hub, drum, blades and stator assembly. Heavy maintenance on the GE90 and PW4000 engines, the two designs which formed the foundation of the GP7200 engine, are already being done by ESA. EA-powered A380’s are in service since 2008 and 104 EA-powered A380s are presently in operation around the globe: 73 with Emirates, 10 with Air France, 10 with Korean Air, six with Qatar Airways and five with Etihad Airways.
