PBS and Pratt & Whitney signed MoU to jointly explore opportunities for Next-Generation APU
Prvni brnenska strojirna Velka Bites, a. s. (PBS), a prominent Czech manufacturer of auxiliary power units (APUs), turbine engines, and aerospace equipment, has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Pratt & Whitney (P&W), a leading aerospace manufacturer headquartered in the United States.
The primary focus of this cooperative effort is to leverage the unique strengths and expertise of both entities to identify and capitalize on emerging trends within APU development and define a concept of next-generation APU.
“Pratt & Whitney is excited for this opportunity to cooperate with PBS to explore development of a next generation APU,“ said Emmy Guzmán, director and general manager of the APU and Turbojet business for Pratt & Whitney. “P&W has had prior success with such relationships and the MOU provides a solid foundation for our teams to develop a product that may be broadly leveraged for aircraft auxiliary power and adjacent applications.“
