ITP acquires the Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW100 engine maintenance business from AVIO

The acquisition of Avio’s PW100 business comes along with the signature of a licensing contract with the engine manufacturer, Pratt & Whitney Canada, under which ITP becomes a PW100 engine Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF).


Features of the PW100 engine

The PW100 engine is a turboprop engine generating 3000 shp of thrust. With over 4500 engines in active operations across its different models, the PW100 engine is the most popular engine for regional airline applications. These applications include ATR 42 and 72 series, the Bombardier Q100 to Q300 and the Fokker 50/60, amongst others. They also have a presence in applications for other segments such as military transport, with the EADS-CASA C295 and Bombardier  CL415 fire fighting aircraft. The Ajalvir factory will leverage on its deep PW100 knowledge stemming from both its maintenance experience since 2003 on the Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW127G engines and PW123 AF engines operated by the Spanish Air Force and, for the support provided to the Air Nostrum fleet.

The ITP group, made up of SENER (53.125%) and Rolls-Royce (46.875%), includes among its activities such areas as Design, Research & Development, Manufacture and Casting, as well as the Assembly and Testing of aeronautical engines and gas turbines. It is also the official maintenance service provider for the majority of the world’s currently active engine manufacturers.
