P&WC Designated Maintenance Facility COHC to Add 3 New Helicopter Engines to its Service Capabilities

Pratt & Whitney Canada, a business unit of Pratt & Whitney, announced that Shenzhen-based CITIC Offshore Helicopter Co., Ltd. (COHC) is expanding the scope of its designated maintenance services to provide line maintenance and mobile repair team support for the PW206B2 and PW206B3 engines that power Airbus H135B2/B3 helicopters, and the PW206C that powers the Leonardo AW109.

COHC was authorized as a Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) Designated Maintenance Facility (DMF) in 2018 to provide PT6C-67C engine maintenance services for Leonardo AW139 helicopter customers. It has recently signed a contract with Leonardo for four AW139 helicopters, which will be utilized for offshore oil-and-gas production (OGP) operations. The deliveries will be completed by first half of 2023, expanding the Leonardo fleet operated by COHC to 10 helicopters with 8 AW139s, one AW169 and one AW109 all powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada helicopter engines.

To create more value for the Chinese growing aviation market, Pratt & Whitney Canada is committed to expanding its service network in the country, enhancing its service offerings and strengthening customer relationships.
