MTU Maintenance has been certified to carry out MRO work on the PW307 engine family, which powers the Dassault Falcon 8X. It is the latest variant to be added to MTU's engine capabilities at its Berlin-Brandenburg facility.
MTU Aero Engines, parent company of MTU Maintenance, has been manufacturing PW300 engine parts since 1985. It has a 15% stake in the PW307 engine programme and is responsible for the development and production of the complete three-stage low-pressure turbine, including the exit case and the mixer.
MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg has been performing MRO and mobile repair services on the PW300 engine family since 2001. Engine service contracts are managed by Pratt & Whitney Customer Service Centre Europe in a joint venture between MTU Maintenance and Pratt & Whitney Canada.
“We are delighted to be fully certified for the newest generation of PW300 engines,” says André Sinanian, managing director and senior vice president, MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg. “We have carried out all necessary preparations, such as correlating the test cell, and look forward to receiving the first engines. We are specialised in small to midsize fan engines and expect this programme to run well into the 2030s.”
