OGMA is the new authorized maintenance center for Pratt & Whitney engines, one of the world’s largest aircraft engine manufacturers. This is the culmination of a project developed by OGMA, with the support of Embraer, over the past 12 months, which allows it to expand its scope of services in the area of engine maintenance, marking the entry of Pratt & Whitney maintenance, repair and overhaul in Portugal.

 

The contract between Pratt & Whitney and OGMA was formalized recently. The industrialization and training project to carry out the maintenance of Pratt & Whitney GTF™ (Geared Turbofan) PW1100G-JM engine is scheduled to start in 2021 and is expected to develop for the next two decades. Throughout the project, with higher incidence between 2022 and 2023, about 300 highly qualified direct jobs are expected to be created.

 

OGMA will invest 74 million euros, mostly in the first four years of the project, in a strategic step that allows it to broaden its scope of activity in the area of engine maintenance and to achieve new business over the next decades, which will triple OGMA’s turnover and reach the level of 600 million euros annually.

 

Alexandre Solis, CEO of OGMA says: “This is a historic milestone for OGMA, a company with more than 100 years of existence. By earning the trust of Pratt & Whitney, we are proving the expertise and experience of our teams, but we are also enabling OGMA to continue with a lasting operation in the coming decades. We are motivated and eager to start this relationship with Pratt & Whitney”.

 

 

 

 

  

 

“We are excited to welcome OGMA to the GTF MRO network,” said Dave Emmerling, vice president, Commercial Aftermarket at Pratt & Whitney. “With OGMA, we add a highly capable maintenance provider with a long history of engine overhaul experience. As the GTF fleet continues to grow, the network will be ready to support our expanding global customer base.”

 

“This contract is a demonstration of OGMA's high level of expertise and competence in the maintenance of aircraft engines and represents an opportunity for the Embraer group to expand its business in providing services to other manufacturers in the international market. In line with Embraer's new strategy, it is a diversification of the businesses that will result in the growth of the Services & Support area in the coming years.”, said Johann Bordais, President and CEO, Embraer Services & Support.

 

Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engine family is used in the new generation of commercial aircraft, namely the Airbus A320neo family, the Airbus A220, and the Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2.

 

Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engines are a new generation of high bypass turbofan engines, which started to operate in 2016, which allow operations with a reduction of up to 16% in fuel consumption, up to 75% in noise emissions and between 50 to 75% CO2 and NOx emissions compared to the previous engine generation.
