StandardAero to switch PW100 Designated Overhaul Facility to Canada
StandardAero is moving its Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW100 Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) from The Netherlands to Winnipeg, Canada. This P&WC-approved PW100 overhaul facility will provide heavy repair, engine overhaul, and line-replaceable-unit (LRU) overhaul services.
A newly created turboprop business unit in support of P&WC products will unite the PW100 and the PT6 DOFs, facilitating the incorporation of StandardAero’s P&WC turboprop expertise into one dedicated Winnipeg facility.
“This new turboprop business unit is a significant enhancement to the P&WC services offered by StandardAero,” said Manny Atwal, general manager of the new P&WC turboprop business unit. “The combined business unit will enable us to provide the best support to our customers.”
StandardAero’s existing PW100 facility in Tilburg, The Netherlands, will transition into a European sales and service centre. The facility will continue to perform Rolls-Royce GEM Maintenance, as well as maintaining field service and test capabilities for the PT6 and PW100 engine models, and field service and light repair capabilities for the PW600 engine.
