At MTU Aero Engines in Munich, engines are assembled and components manufactured for shipment to the big engine OEMs. The Munich facility, moreover, produces spare parts and develops innovative repair and maintenance techniques developed for use at the company’s affiliates.
MTU Aero Engines has a 15 percent workshare in Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PurePower PW800 engine program. It has design responsibility for the engines’ low-pressure turbine and the front high-pressure compressor.
The expansion was prompted by the decision to set up two final assembly lines in Munich: one for the PW1000G-JM engine to power the A320neo and one for the TP400-D6 engine to power the Airbus A400M military transport aircraft.
The company has been selected to supply its seals for the two additional GTF engine models: the PW1100G-JM engine to power the A320neo aircraft and the PW1400G engine to power the Irkut MC-21 aircraft.
MTU’s commercial maintenance business expects to see a growing demand for maintenance services for the GE90 and V2500 programs. In 2014, group revenues are expected to rise to around €3,750 million (2013 calculated on a comparable basis: €3,574.1...
In the commercial engine maintenance business, MTU predicts an increase in revenues in the upper single-digit percentage range; the spare parts business will grow moderately in the mid-single-digit percentage range next year.
