This turbofan engine is a cooperation between MTU Aero Engines located in Munich and Pratt & Whitney located in East Hartford (USA). MTU is responsible for the entire low-pressure turbine subsystem and the high-pressure compressor. The engine stands out by its high efficiency and is manufactured using innovative materials which are also present in the new generation PurePower® PW1000G Geared Turbofan™ (GTF) engines developed by MTU under the leadership of Pratt & Whitney. The introduction of hybrid bearings equipped with bearing outer ring cooling techniques would be a technological leap in the aero engine development for higher endurance and efficiency.
