Pratt and Whitney AeroPower’s APS2600[E] APU selected for Embraer’s second generation E-Jet

Pratt & Whitney AeroPower’s* APS2600[E] auxiliary power unit has been selected by Embraer for its second generation E-Jet.

Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. company.

“We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with Embraer and provide our APS2600[E] APU for the second generation E-Jet,” said Eileen P. Drake, vice president and general manager, Pratt & Whitney AeroPower. “The APS2600[E] APU provides exceptional value to customers by providing increased electric power capability, both on the ground and in flight, a significantly higher operating altitude, and world-class reliability.”

In addition to the APS2600[E] APU, Pratt & Whitney AeroPower APUs can be found on Embraer’s ERJ-145, E170/175 and E190/195 fleets. Pratt & Whitney AeroPower was also recently selected for Embraer’s KC-390 military cargo tanker for the Brazilian Air Force.

APUs provide aircraft with secondary power in the form of high pressure air for main engine starting, cabin air conditioning and electric power while on the ground. APUs can also provide backup electric power during in-flight operation.

The second generation Embraer E-Jets will also be equipped with Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower® PW1700G and PW1900G engines, which will offer significant reductions in fuel burn, emissions, noise and operating costs compared to today’s aircraft.
