Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, 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, a modification of a prior agreement, 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, Maryland.
Paul Craig, Rolls-Royce, President – Defence Services, said, “This contract represents another vote of confidence in the support and services offered by Rolls-Royce to our US military customers.”
“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.
