Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1000G engine will be fitted with electrical wiring systems from Fokker Elmo under a new contract.

The PW1000G is a centreline engine that features an advanced gear system to allow the engine’s fan to operate at a slower speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine.

The gear system and the advanced core delivers improvements in fuel efficiency and environmental emissions and reduces noise emissions by 50%.

The development of the system is scheduled for the first quarter of 2010 followed by serial production in 2011.
