First PurePower engine for Embraer E190-E2 initiates testing

Pratt & Whitney has completed assembly and is initiating testing of the first PurePower PW1900G test engine at its facility in East Hartford, Connecticut. The PW1900G engine, a derivative of the PW1500G engine, has been specifically designed for installation on the new Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) company.

"We're excited to reach this milestone with the PW1900G engine," said Greg Gernhardt, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "This marks the first concrete milestone we've reached with Embraer and is the fourth of our PurePower Geared Turbofan™ engines to enter into the test program."

The first PW1900G engine will initially conduct ground performance and operability testing before being installed onto the Pratt & Whitney 747-SP flying test bed located in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada for further testing.

"As the program continues its progress, we are thrilled with the announcement that the first engine has entered the testing program," said Paulo Cesar Silva, president & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. "With its completely new state of the art wings, full fly-by-wire flight controls and Geared Turbofan PW engines, the E-Jets E2 will deliver unprecedented fuel efficiency and operating economics."

The PurePower engine family has completed more than 19,000 hours and 34,000 cycles of full engine testing, including 5,000 hours of flight time.
