PWC calls on South Pole to offset members' carbon
As part of the carbon offset service, Pratt & Whitney Canada and South Pole, a provider of environmentally sustainable solutions, take on the role of estimating and compensating aircraft emissions for the customer.

Pratt & Whitney Canada is launching a carbon offset service for business jet operators with engines enrolled in an Eagle Service Plan maintenance programme. Operators will be able to offset their aircraft's carbon footprint, while contributing towards greater environmental sustainability. The company is also announcing its commitment to offset the emissions of its entire fleet of corporate aircraft under Raytheon Technologies.

“We have a long-standing commitment to offering environmentally responsible products and solutions to our customers, from being one of the first companies to certify engines for use with sustainable aviation fuels to finding ways to minimise the impact of operations and engines on the environment throughout their entire lifecycle,” says Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, VP of customer service at Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We are excited to announce this latest solution that supports our customers' desire to act in an environmentally responsible way.”

As part of the carbon offset service, Pratt & Whitney Canada and South Pole, a recognised provider of environmentally sustainable solutions, take on the role of estimating and compensating aircraft emissions for the customer. The enrolment is straightforward, and the service is convenient, transparent, cost-effective and flexible, with customers paying service charges on their ESP invoice only when their aircraft is in flight. All customers will receive a certificate confirming that their carbon emissions have been offset.

“We all have a role to play in ensuring a healthy planet, so having environmentally sustainable options and solutions available to us as aircraft operators helps us reach our green objectives,” adds Mike Wyant, responsible for maintenance, Solairus Aviation. “We are pleased to be able to offset our carbon footprint by supporting projects that satisfy stringent standards while also contributing to local communities.”

Pratt & Whitney is also further expanding the presence of its global service network. It has appointed three designated maintenance facilities (DMFs) that will provide line maintenance and mobile repair team services for a number of Pratt & Whitney Canada engines operating within various countries: Servicios Aereos y Terrestres Aviasur in Pudahuel, Region Metropolitana, Chile (PT6A, PW500 engines); Aero-Dienst in Nuremberg, Germany (PW305, PW306, PW307, PW308 engines); and Prince Aviation in Belgrade, Serbia (PT6A, PW500, PW600, JT15D engines).

These three new DMFs bring the total to 16 in the Pratt & Whitney network, joining others in Asia, the Americas and Europe.

“We have been expanding the number of our DMFs around the world since mid-2017 to ensure our customers have access to the line maintenance and MRT services they require between major scheduled maintenance,” says Kumarasingam. “DMFs expand our ability to serve customers locally in the language of their preference. Along with faster turnaround times and streamlined logistics, they provide customers with a one-stop shop for authorised, high-quality services, from engine OEM-approved tooling and parts to direct support from the engine manufacturer if complex technical questions arise.”
