Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) plans to invest C$1bn ($874m) over the next 4.5 years to develop new high-performance engines.

The investment, which includes a repayable C$300m ($260m) loan from Canada’s federal government, will be spent on programmes developed at the company’s engineering and manufacturing centres of excellence in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.

P&WC is working on new technologies it claims will reduce fuel consumption and weight, lower emissions and cut noise.

These will be used across the company’s new and existing turbofan, turboprop and turboshaft engines.
