Pratt & Whitney Canada signs GMCP agreement with DanCopter

Manufacturer and designer of aircraft Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) on Sunday announced the signing of a new Guaranteed Maintenance Cost Plan agreement with DanCopter AS, a helicopter company in Northern Europe, for comprehensive maintenance support of its new PT6C-67C engines.

The agreement with DanCopter AS is a tailor-made agreement that covers overhaul, hot section inspection, basic unplanned engine removals, rental support, engine condition trend monitoring, fuel nozzles plus other options that cater to the customer’s unique requirements, Pratt & Whitney said. Financial details of the agreement were not available.

Pratt & Whitney Canada Customer Service Centre Europe reportedly worked closely to customise the agreement for the helicopters operated by DanCopter to support offshore oil & gas operations in Nigeria.

The company said that the FMP Programme’s Guaranteed Maintenance Cost Plan is a highly flexible contract and allows customers to maintain cost stability and protection while selecting from a menu of services based on their individual needs.
