ITP participates in Pratt & Whitney Canada's Next Generation PurePower PW800 engines

ITP today announced its participation as a risk & revenue sharing partner (RRSP) in Pratt & Whitney Canada's PurePower® PW800 engines, which are the power behind the new Gulfstream G500 and G600 business jets, which were launched yesterday at Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.'s Georgia headquarters and represent a step-change in business aviation by allowing to provide customers with the greatest flexibility, range and comfort.

A 16,000-pound-thrust-class powerhouse, the PurePower PW800 engine is optimized for high-flying, fast, long-range business jets and shares the same proven, rigorously tested core technology used in Pratt & Whitney's PurePower family of geared turbofan commercial engines.

Certification of the PurePower PW814GA and PW815GA engines that will power the Gulfstream G500 and G600 respectively is expected before the end of 2014. It is anticipated that by the time the PurePower PW800 engine enters into service, the PurePower engine family will have accumulated more than 1.5 million hours of service.

As a partner of the PurePower PW800 engine, ITP is responsible for the design, development, manufacture and assembly of both the Low Pressure Compressor and the Mid Turbine Frame of the engine for the life of the program. ITP will also participate in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of the PurePower PW800 once it enters service.

The Low Pressure Compressor drives air from the fan exit into the core, compressing the air and delivering it to the High Pressure Compressor. It is comprised by multiple stator stages and rotating titanium integrally bladed rotors.

The Mid Turbine Frame is a complex, high temperature capability structure located between the High Pressure Turbine and the Low Pressure Turbine, which has the function to provide structural integrity to the engine as well as locating main engine bearings. Both the Low Pressure compressor and the Mid Turbine Frame are key products within ITP´s strategy and for which ITP has state-of-the-art technology and production capabilities. Design and production of key components for such modules will take place in the different facilities of ITP in Spain (Zamudio and Ajalvir), Mexico and the UK.

It is estimated that once the engine commences service, it will be in production for the next two decades and will generate revenue for ITP in excess of 500M€.

“We are thrilled to be Gulfstream's powerplant supplier of choice for the newly launched G500 and G600 business jets. A true collaborative achievement, the delivery of PW800 engine family has to do with the work of our employees around the world and partners, including ITP. The collaboration with ITP has been very successful since the beginning and we are very satisfied with the capabilities that ITP brings to the program.” said John Saabas, President, Pratt & Whitney Canada.

“This program represents a key step in ITP´s portfolio as it brings several innovations with it. First, a very successful collaboration with Pratt & Whitney Canada, where ITP is responsible for the complete life cycle of two major modules of the engine: the Low Pressure Compressor and the Mid Turbine Frame. This program also strengthens our position in the large cabin business aviation market sector, an important aspect of ITP's global strategy.” said Ignacio Mataix, CEO, ITP.
