PW980 Auxiliary Power Units
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.
