Lufthansa Technik and MTU Aero Engines are exploring the possibility of forming a maintenance company to offer services for the PW1000G geared turbofan engine after a signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

Both parties said a decision will be made by the end of 2016 with a “globally competitive” location to be determined.

In a statement released today (September 20), Lufthansa Technik said the joint venture could handle a “substantial” amount of GTF shop visits in the first few years of business.

The two firms are involved in the Pratt’s GTF programme – Lufthansa Technik became a member of its aftersales network in July 2016, while MTU is a partner in the PW1000G programme.

Lufthansa Technik and MTU have ran their Airfoil Services joint venture in Malaysia since 2003, which carries out low-pressure turbine and high-pressure compressor airfoils repair.
