P&WC is an industry leader in the design, manufacture and maintenance of APUs, a position built from its foundation as a major supplier of gas turbine engines for a host of turboprop, turbofan and turboshaft aircraft.
Our PW980 is the largest APU in commercial airline service. This APU is a two-shaft gas turbine engine, specifically designed for the Airbus A380 wide-body jet liner. During on-ground operation, it provides bleed air for cabin conditioning from a low spool-driven load compressor, main engine start capability, and electrical power from two gearbox-mounted, 120kVA generators. The APU is also designed to deliver in-flight backup power.
