Pratt & Whitney's Singapore engine centre, Eagle Services Asia (ESA) has inducted its first PW1100G-JM engine for overhaul. Eagle Services Asia is a joint venture between SIA Engineering Company and Pratt & Whitney. The facility was modernised and repurposed to handle multiple, simultaneous engine overhaul lines for Pratt & Whitney and Engine Alliance engine models – the PW4000 family, PW1100G-JM, and GP7200 engines, respectively. ESA also reconfigured its engine test capability to accommodate the new GTF engine model. Engine Alliance is a joint venture of Pratt & Whitney and General Electric.

 

In 2019, ESA will gradually introduce a new ground-based flow system, which will enable visual line of sight on the GTF engine overhaul line. In the new system, engine modules will move from one station to another, improving the visibility of operations through the line from disassembly to assembly and test, in contrast to the old engine repair work bay. Already proven in the automotive industry, the system improves productivity while maximising the use of existing space. At full capacity, the flow lines can accommodate up to six GTF engines at a time.
