Pratt &Whitney GTF engines capabilities at EME Aero

EME Aero a part of Pratt & Whitney global GTF MRO network


 Pratt &Whitney GTF engines  technology delivers game-changing reductions in: fuel burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs. In the GTF engines family, a state of the art gear system separates the engine fan from the low pressure compressor and turbine, allowing each of the modules to operate at their optimum speeds. This enables the fan to rotate slower and while the low pressure compressor and turbine operate at higher speeds, increasing engine efficiency and delivering significantly lower fuel consumption, emissions and noise. This increased efficiency also translates to fewer engine stages and parts, for lower weight and reduced maintenance costs. EME Aero, with a workforce of the final level of 1000 employees will be the MRO geared turbofan specialist of choice.
