Rolls-Royce Wins US Marine Corps Contract

AE 1107C engines

  Rolls-Royce has been awarded a new, two-year contract to provide aftermarket engine support for the US Marine Corps and Air Force V-22 fleets, which provides a more than 30 percent reduction in support costs. The contract, through the company's innovative MissionCare™ model, is valued at up to $287 million and will cover all V-22 aircraft across the Marine and Air Force fleets. Rolls-Royce is the sole engine provider for V-22 aircraft and has delivered 750 AE 1107C engines to the program. The reduced maintenance costs result from a significant improvement in engine time on wing since 2009 when the original MissionCare contract was signed. Rolls-Royce has invested $90 million in capability and reliability improvements for the AE 1107C engine. Rolls-Royce has designed a series of upgrades that boost "hot and high" performance and add 17 percent more power to the engine over the original specification. MissionCare, a Rolls-Royce developed package of services, incentivizes the company to design, develop and implement technology and affordability improvements to benefit the customer. Tom Hartmann, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President Customer Business, said, "This new contract demonstrates confidence from V-22 operators that Rolls-Royce will continue to provide outstanding service and capability to the V-22 fleets
