Pratt & Whitney partners’ Turkish engine center delivers 100th overhauled engine

Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners’ Turkish Engine Center recently celebrated delivery of its 100th overhauled CFM56® engine to Turkish Airlines.

The Turkish Engine Center is a joint venture between Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp.; and Turkish Technic, a division of Turkish Airlines.

“This engine delivery to Turkish Airlines marks a new milestone for the Turkish Engine Center,” said Jerry Tarnacki, Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners vice president. “The Turkish Engine Center has achieved proven record of service excellence while rapidly expanding its customer base. I look forward to recognizing many more similar milestones with the Turkish Engine Center team.”

“We are very proud this world-class engine overhaul facility has shipped its 100th engine,” said Dr. Ismail Demir, Turkish Technic general manager and Turkish Engine Center board chairman. “The Turkish Engine Center has proven 100 times it is able to provide high quality engine repair and overhaul services with full customer satisfaction to its customers all over the world.”

The Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners Turkish Engine Center is a state-of-the art facility with extensive part repair capacity that helps reduce engine overhaul costs and turnaround times. Pratt & Whitney, together with Turkish Technic, opened the high-technology and environmentally efficient facility in 2010. It is Pratt & Whitney’s first engine center in Turkey and is part of the company’s Global Service Partners network providing engine maintenance, repair and overhaul services to customers worldwide. The facility meets the Gold standard of the United States Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of Turkish Airlines, Turkish Technic was established in May 2006 to provide airframe, line maintenance, Auxiliary Power Unit and component maintenance services at its base at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, Ankara Esenboga Airport and soon to open HABOM project at Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport. When completed later this year, the Turkish Technic HABOM facility will be able to simultaneously service 13 narrow body and three wide body aircraft.
