Constructing New Facilities
MTU Maintenance Zhuhai began construction in March on a new training facility in China, which is expected to begin operations at the beginning of 2023. The facility plans to train between 50-100 engine maintenance mechanics annually. The main technical achievement of the new training center will be successfully reducing turnaround times (TAT) for engine maintenance by implementing the highest quality standards.
In September 2021, MTU Maintenance Zhuhai began building a new site in Jinwan for engine disassembly, assembly and testing. The new plant will initially have capacity for 260 maintenance procedures, focusing on Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM and V2500 engines, and will go into operation in 2024. The new training center will serve both the existing plant in the Free Trade Zone and the new site in Jinwan district, Zhuhai.
