Today, Pratt & Whitney announced that a member of their global network of maintenance providers, OGMA – Indústria Aeronáutica de Portugal, an Embraer company, will add the PW1900G engine to their GTF MRO capability.
On Friday (November 19, 2021), Pratt & Whitney announced that OGMA - Indústria Aeronáutica de Portugal, an Embraer company, will be adding the PW1900G engine to their GTF MRO capability. The Pratt & Whitney PW1900G currently powers the Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 jets. The MRO’s expansion was recognized at an in-person signing ceremony with the Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa, Embraer’s CEO Francisco Neto, and Pratt & Whitney MRO leaders Marc Meredith and Shornda Cadore. OGMA joined the global network of providers who maintain Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines in November 2020, to provide MRO services for the PW1100G-JM engines that power the Airbus A320neo Family of aircraft at their facility in Alverca, Portugal.
In Friday’s announcement, Pratt & Whitney’s Executive Director of GTF Engine Aftermarket, Marc Meredith, said,
“We are pleased to see OGMA’s role as a member of our GTF MRO network expand to encompass the PW1900G.
