Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp., together with joint venture partner, China Eastern Airlines, signed an agreement on Tuesday during the Singapore Airshow to incorporate V2500 engine overhaul capability in their facility in Shanghai, China.

The Pratt & Whitney Shanghai Engine Centre will begin overhauling V2500 engines in 2017.

The engine center opened in 2009 to perform maintenance on CFM56 engines for customers around the world.

The facility's repair capabilities, including its 10-meter test cell with capability of up to 80,000 pounds of thrust and state-of-the-art information technology system, has provided maintenance, repair and overhaul services to airline customers in China and the Asia Pacific region, the company said.

"The Shanghai Engine Centre is a proven, high-quality engine maintenance provider in this very competitive Asia Pacific market," said Matthew Bromberg, president of Pratt & Whitney Aftermarket.

"Growing capabilities at this facility exemplifies our commitment to providing operators with comprehensive services at a competitive cost."

Pratt & Whitney has helped keep our fleet running through its investment in cutting edge technology and advanced repair capability in engine maintenance, repair and overhaul," said Feng Liang, vice president of China Eastern Airlines.

"We are pleased to expand our current partnership to include the V2500 engine services."
