Rolls-Royce has received military contracts from the US Department of Defense for the next five years to service engines for the Marine Corps and US Navy worth over 1.8 billion dollars. The contracts show continued confidence in Rolls-Royce and its defense services that support many US and allied navies across the world.
One of the two contracts includes depot-level interim maintenance and logistics support for over 200 Rolls-Royce F405 engines powered by the T-45 trainer aircraft of the US Navy. The contract is based on the availability metrics, with GE providing the important engines to facilitate training for Marine and Navy aviators.
The work will be performed primarily at Mississippi, Naval Air Station Meridian, and Kingsville, Texas. This contract is for five years and is worth up to 1.013 billion dollars.
The second contract includes depot-level engine repair services for the Rolls Royce AE 2100D3 turboprop engines that are powered by C-103J and KC-130J transport aircraft piloted by the Marine Corps of the United States and the government of Kuwait.
The contract is valued at 854 million dollars over the next five years, and work will be performed at many sites in the United States, Portugal, and Canada.
