MTU Aero Engines AG

Germany's leading engine manufacturer has been a key player in the global engine industry for 80 years. It engages in the development, manufacture, marketing and support of commercial and military aircraft engine modules and industrial gas turbines. The company is a technological leader in low-pressure turbines, high-pressure compressors, manufacturing processes  and repair techniques. Figuring significantly among MTU's core competencies are the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of commercial engines and the service support it provides for industrial gas turbines. These activities are combined under the roof of MTU Maintenance, which is one of the world’s largest providers of commercial engine MRO services. MTU operates affiliates around the globe; Munich is home to its corporate headquarters. In fiscal 2013, the company had a workforce of some 8,700 employees and posted consolidated sales of some 3.7 billion euros.

Role in the project

MTU is coordinating ENOVAL and will have its main technical work within SP4 in WP4.5 High-speed lowpressure turbine (LPT). Focus is the integrated optimised design of the ITC / LPT / TEC considering the interaction with the adjacent parts of the LPT module. New design concepts, addressing structure mechanical, aerodynamic and aeroacoustic will be validated in different aero and mechanical validation rigs for the ITC / LPT interaction and the LPT / TEC interaction separately. In addition MTU will act as an engine owner for the very large geared turbofan engine platform in SP1.
