SIA Engineering (SIAEC) has signed an agreement to participate in Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1000G engine risk-revenue sharing program (RRSP) with a 3-percent stake in the Bombardier C Series engine program and a 1-percent stake in the Mitsubishi Regional Jet engine program. As part of the agreement, Pratt & Whitney will designate Eagle Services Asia, a joint venture between SIAEC and P&W, the first engine center in the global RRSP MRO network for the PW1500G engine, the PurePower variant that will power the Bombardier C Series.

The PurePower PW1000G features a gear system that allows the engine’s fan to operate at a slower speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the gear system and new core delivers double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and environmental emissions and a 50-percent reduction in noise. 

SIAEC has approvals from 25 national aviation regulatory authorities to provide MRO services for aircraft registered in the U.S., Europe and Japan, among others.
