UTC Aerospace Systems to provide the nacelle systems for the Second Generation Embraer E-Jets

UTC Aerospace Systems has been chosen by Pratt & Whitney as the exclusive nacelle provider for both engine models for Embraer’s new Second Generation E-Jet aircraft.

The nacelle systems will be provided by the Aerostructures business unit headquartered in Chula Vista, Calif. The Embraer Second Generation E-Jets will be equipped with Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ PW1700G and PW1900G engines.

Designed and manufactured to leverage the latest in composite technology, the nacelle systems will directly contribute to the significant reductions in fuel burn, emissions, noise and operating costs that Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower engines will provide compared to today’s aircraft. The PurePower engine uses an advanced gear system and an all-new advanced core that delivers double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and environmental emissions, as well as a 50 percent reduction in noise.

“The nacelles for the Embraer Second Generation E-Jets feature a 360-degree acoustically smooth inlet that we developed, which is a major contributor to reductions in engine noise. It has become the global standard for inlet cowls,” said Aerostructures business unit President Marc Duvall. “These nacelle systems strike the perfect balance of weight, performance and cost, enabling a complete and fully integrated propulsion package that will deliver optimal value to Embraer.”

The Aerostructures business currently supplies the APU tailcone for the EMBRAER 170 and the EMBRAER 175 the APU tailcone and GE CF34-10 nacelle system for the EMBRAER 190 and the EMBRAER 195. Based on forecasts for aircraft orders, UTC Aerospace Systems estimates that this latest selection by Pratt & Whitney will generate approximately $12 billion in sales over the life of the aircraft program. The new Second Generation E-Jets are expected to enter into service in 2018. The Aerostructures business is also providing the nacelle system for additional applications of PurePower engines, including the PW1100G-JM, PW1200G and PW1500G engines.

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries. UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities.
