GKN Aerospace Signs Machining Contract with Aero Engine Corporation of China

GKN Aerospace has signed a machining contract with Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) to supply development parts of the Turbine Rear Frame (TRF) for the new high-bypass turbofan jet engine being developed to power Chinese commercial jet airliners.

The TRF will be delivered in the second quarter of 2017, for use in the new commercial engine test and development programme.

The TRF will be manufactured at the GKN Aerospace facility in Trollhattan, Sweden, a centre of excellence for turbine engine structures.

Alex Guruprasad, Vice President Business Development Engine Systems, said, This is our second agreement with AECC CAE and demonstrates the trust and continuous relationship being developed with AECC CAE. The capabilities within GKN Aerospace will further strengthen our relationship with the Chinese Aerospace industry. The Chinese aerospace market continues to grow and will be a key market in the future. We believe the expertise we offer in engine part manufacturing, as well as the local support through our Shanghai office have been extremely important to close this agreement and build relations. We will continue to closely follow this market and work with AECC CAE and the Chinese aerospace industry for additional opportunities.
