Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) Vector Aerospace expects to open its new engine center at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park by the end of this year. The facility is being specifically built to support Pratt & Whitney Canada PW150A turboprops and represents an investment of almost $40 million.
Last year, Pratt & Whitney Canada appointed Vector (Booth T102) as a designated overhaul facility. It will support operators of aircraft such as the Bombardier Q400 regional airliner in the Asia Pacific region.
When fully operational, the new facility will employ up to 140 people in a variety of repair, test, engineering, commercial and support roles. The 86,100-sq-ft site has space for Vector to add support services for other products in the future. The Canada-based company provides a variety of MRO services, also covering engines made by General Electric, Rolls-Royce, Honeywell and Turbomeca, as well as various rotorcraft airframes and avionics.
