Int'l engine giants bid for C919's turbine
Adjust font size:

At the grand opening ceremony of the Shanghai Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Engine Maintenance Company on September 24, Todd J. Kallman, president of the Commercial Engines and Global Services Unit, used the opportunity to deliver a message to the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC): Pratt & Whitney is actively participating in China's C919 aircraft project and attempting to supply its cutting-edge PW100G jet engine.

Like Pratt & Whitney, other major international engine makers like CFM and Goodrich have also shown interest in supplying engines to COMAC's C919 aircraft.

Compared with existing engines on the world market of comparable thrust, the Pratt & Whitney engine will raise fuel efficiency by 12-15 percent while reducing noise and exhaust emissions by half each, according to Kallman, who declined to reveal the results of the negotiation with COMAC.
