The PW200 Engines Incorporate the Latest Technologies to Exceed our Customers' Expectations

Ranging in power from 500 to over 700 shaft horsepower, the PW200 is simple in concept, with only three major rotating components and a modular design enabling easy maintenance. A single-stage centrifugal compressor driven by a single-stage turbine with a PT6-style reverse flow combustor, power a free, single stage power turbine. The power turbine, in turn, powers the output shaft through a front-mounted reduction gearbox. Combining the reduction and engine accessory gearbox contributes to the PW200's compact design. The PW200's control system features an Electronic Engine Control with full hydro-mechanical backup delivering pilot-friendly operation including auto-starting. Low fuel consumption, lightweight, a compact architecture, low environmental emissions, minimum maintenance and low maintenance cost are fundamental to the PW200's sustaining appeal in the marketplace.
