Powerplants For US Marine Corps And US Air Force V-22 Aircraft
Rolls-Royce has won a $52.2 million contract to support AE 1107C engines for V-22 aircraft operated by the US Marine Corps and Air Force. The contract, announced Thursday, is a modification of a prior agreement. It includes repair and support services, with work carried out at Rolls-Royce facilities in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Oakland, California, as well as fleet support at customer bases. The contract for work in 2012-13 was awarded through the Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, MD.
“This contract represents another vote of confidence in the support and services offered by Rolls-Royce to our US military customers," said Paul Craig, Rolls-Royce, President – Defence Services. "We are focused on enabling our customers to keep their aircraft flying and supporting them every day to allow their missions to go forward.”
The Rolls-Royce AE 1107C turboshaft is part of the AE product family, which has over 5,000 engines in service and more than 53 million flight hours, and exclusively powers the growing V-22 fleet for the US Marine Corps and Air Force. In addition to a dedicated team of Field Service Representatives, Rolls-Royce also supports the AE 1107C engine fleet through the new Defense Operations Center in Indianapolis, providing 24/7 real-time engineering support for V-22 operators.
