Pratt & Whitney has announced a $65m investment in its engine overhaul facility in Columbus, Georgia, to grow its MRO services for the PurePower Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine.

The engine centre, located 90 miles south of Atlanta, will add disassembly, inspection, assembly and test capabilities for the GTF.

Work is expected to begin later this year and builds on previous investments in the site aimed at adding GTF engine MRO capabilities.

“As the GTF engine continues to enter into service, it is critical that we have a strong maintenance, repair and overhaul network in place to support these engines,” said Joe Sylvestro, vice-president, aftermarket operations, Pratt & Whitney.
