February 4, 2013 By Carey Fredericks
Feb. 4, 2013, Manchester, U.K. - Euravia has introduced yet another enhancement to its already extensive Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 MRO service capabilities, with the addition of the PT6C series engine.
Euravia has received both EASA and FAA approval for the full overhaul of PT6C engines to further complement its existing and internationally renowned PT6A and PT6T production lines, covering over 52 different P&WC PT6 engine types.
The PT6C series was designed to support the growing medium-class helicopter market, including offshore, border control, VIP transport, medical services, maritime patrol, search and rescue and utility operations. The 1,200 and 2,000 shaft horsepower PT6C engines offer durability, simplified flying, cost-effective operations, enhanced maintenance and diagnostics. The PT6C main application is the Agusta Westland AW139 helicopter.
Euravia's Managing Director, Dennis Mendoros, said: "Over the last 20 years, Euravia has offered dedicated MRO and logistic support to PT6A, PT6T and ST6 operators around the world. The addition of the PT6C to our capability portfolio highlights Euravia's ongoing investment in support of P&WC products for the long-term and; also demonstrates our commitment to ensure that we have the latest and most advanced capabilities in order to focus on new generation engines."
"This new expansion was Customer driven as many of our existing PT6T operators are now also operating the new PT6C engines," added Steve Clarkson, Euravia's Business Development Director. "It is encouraging to hear that our customers want to ensure that Euravia looks after all their PT6T engines as they transition to the PT6C."
