Hamilton Sundstrand, AVIC EM Will Provide The Systems
Plans have been finalized for the co-development and manufacture
of the electric power system for the new Commercial Aviation
Corporation of China (COMAC) C919 jetliner. Hamilton Sundstrand
Corporation and AVIC Electromechanical Systems Company Limited
announced the agreement Wednesday.
The two companies agreed to a framework for the joint venture at
the Zhuhai Air Show in November, 2010. This agreement finalizes the
commitment to form a new company that will develop and manufacture
the C919's electrical power system, including generation and
distribution, and will serve as a tier one supplier to COMAC on
that program. This joint venture will be located in Xi'an and
plans are in place to begin facility development in June, 2011.
"We are very confident this joint venture will be a great
success and provide world-class electric system products for
China's C919 airliner and other future programs," said Andreas
Schell, president, Hamilton Sundstrand Electric Systems."
AVIC EM designs and produces a wide range of aerospace airborne
systems and products for both the Chinese and international
"AVIC Electromechanical Systems Company Limited and Hamilton
Sundstrand Corporation have signed the joint venture contract for
the electric power system of C919 large passenger aircraft program,
marking substantial progress for both parties in their
cooperation," said AVIC EM President Mr. Wang Jian. "It is highly
hoped that the two parties will work hard and move forward together
to complete the formation of the JV and put it into operation as
soon as possible, and contribute to the flight of C919 into the
blue sky at the earliest possible date."
Hamilton Sundstrand began its presence in the Chinese aviation
market in 1985 with the development of the Y7-200A aircraft. In
early 2010, COMAC selected Hamilton Sundstrand for the 150-seat
class C919's electric system together with AVIC EM, pilot controls
and fire and overheat protection system. The combined value of
these awards is estimated to be worth more than $1.5 billion in
sales over the program's life.
