In response to operators' requests, AgustaWestland has carried out work on a new modification, which has received the designation AW109E Power (A109) (AgustaWestland AW109 Power) and has successfully integrated the reliable design of the A109K2 and powerful motors. Initially, P & WCP206S was selected, power 640hp, but then the choice was on Turbomeca Arrius2K1, power 750hp. 

The landing gear, which is not available on the A109K2, has given way to a new place, the main pillars of which are retracted into the sponsons (and not into the fuselage, as on the previous model 109).
