Vector Aerospace establishes new engine turbine overhaul facility at Seletar Aerospace Park, Singapore

Vector Aerospace Corporation, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has announced the establishment of a new engine facility at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park specially built for the PW150A turboprop engine.

The new 8,000 sqm engine center housing a 5,200 sqm state-of-the-art facility represents Vector Aerospace’s appointment as a Pratt and Whitney Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) and will be equipped with full engine overhaul and test capability.

Vector Aerospace will be investing more than $50 million (Singapore) in the construction, tooling and equipping of this facility.

Declan O’Shea, President & CEO states “In our overall business expansion plan, the South East Asian market is extremely important to us due to its geographic location, strong projected growth and our customer base. We recognize the immense importance of this market and are taking these steps to expand our presence here with close proximity to our customers. Our new facility will benefit PW150 engine owners and operators in terms of faster turn times, minimized shipping costs and superior customer service. To that end, we have already appointed Philip Ang, an experienced senior executive, to be General Manager of Vector Aerospace Asia.”
