Pratt & Whitney, a division of Raytheon Technologies Corp. (NYSE: RTX) announced it will invest $12.5 million into its North Berwick, Maine facility, expanding its Pratt & Whitney GTF TM maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) network. North Berwick will perform maintenance on high pressure turbine and high pressure compressor modules for the PW1100G-JM engine.
“We’re committed to the continued capability expansion of the network and continue to pursue all opportunities to better support our customer base,” said Joe Sylvestro, vice president of Aftermarket Operations at Pratt & Whitney. “By tapping into the expertise and experience of our North Berwick team, we’re excited to further strengthen our MRO capability.”
This investment bolsters Pratt & Whitney’s global GTF MRO Network and accelerates growth by utilizing the facility’s already existing expertise. The addition of GTF high pressure turbine and high pressure compressor module maintenance at North Berwick benefits GTF operators by reduction of lead-time associated to compressor upgrade and repair.
“The addition of North Berwick enables us to improve turnaround time and strengthens our ability to serve customers,” said Rob Griffiths, vice president, GTF Operations and Industrial Management.
The transformation will consist of upgrades to the current space, increasing efficiencies to help minimize disruption to the current flow of operations and allowing for a seamless transition as the facility takes on a new role.
