OGMA – Indústria Aeronáutica de Portugal S.A., an Embraer Group company, has announced that it will be adding the PW1900G engine model to its GTF MRO capability. The PW1900G engine currently powers the Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft. The expansion was recognized at an in-person signing ceremony with Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa, Embraer CEO Francisco Neto, and Pratt & Whitney GTF MRO leaders Marc Meredith and Shornda Cadore.
“We are pleased to see OGMA’s role as a member of our GTF MRO network expand to encompass the PW1900G,” said Marc Meredith, executive director of GTF Engine Aftermarket at Pratt & Whitney. “The relationship between Pratt & Whitney, Embraer, and OGMA has been invaluable, and we are confident that OGMA’s skill and experience will be a tremendous asset to the network as we continue to support our growing global fleet of GTF engines with world class service.”
OGMA is the fifth engine center to be announced in Europe within the GTF MRO network, along with MTU Aero Engines Hannover, EME AERO in Poland, Lufthansa Technik Hamburg and Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey.
“This strengthening of the collaboration with Pratt & Whitney is the recognition of a collaboration that began a year ago between two companies that strive for excellence and quality in their products. It is also an appreciation of the commitment and experience of our teams,” said Alexandre Solis, CEO of OGMA.
