Rolls-Royce Receives $1.8 Billion Contracts From U.S. Military


The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded two contracts, valued at over $1.8 billion over the next 5 years, for Rolls-Royce to service engines for U.S. Navy and Marine Corps aircraft.

The contracts show continued confidence in Rolls-Royce and its defense services, which support multiple U.S. and allied military fleets around the world.

Adam Riddle, Rolls-Royce, President, Defense Services, said, “We are committed to providing the best engine service possible for our customers, and we are laser focused on ensuring their aircraft are mission ready. We appreciate this vote of confidence from the U.S. Department of Defense as we continue to support our brave men and women in uniform.”

One contract includes intermediate, depot-level maintenance and logistics support for over 200 Rolls-Royce F405 engines that power U.S. Navy T-45 flight trainer aircraft. The contract is based on availability metrics, providing engines as needed to facilitate training Naval and Marine aviators. The work will be performed primarily at Naval Air Stations in Meridian, Mississippi, and Kingsville, Texas. The contract is valued at up to $1.013 billion, spanning five years.

The other contract includes depot-level engine repair services for Rolls-Royce AE 2100D3 turboprop engines powering C-130J and KC-130J transport airport aircraft flown by the U.S. Marine Corps and the government of Kuwait. The contract is valued at $854 million over the next five years, with the work performed at multiple sites in the U.S., Canada and Portugal.

All branches of the U.S. armed forces fly aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce engines. That includes C-130 and C-130J transports, V-22 tiltrotor aircraft, and Global Hawk and Triton high-altitude unmanned aircraft. Rolls-Royce also powers the Navy’s MQ-25 unmanned carrier-based refueling aircraft, and recently won the B-52 re-engine program for the Air Force.

Rolls-Royce also provides engines, propellers and other equipment for Navy ships and Army vehicles. Rolls-Royce employs 5,000 people across the U.S. and has invested over $1 billion in new manufacturing, assembly and test facilities in America since 2015, providing state of the art advanced capabilities.

Rolls-Royce pioneers the power that matters to connect, power and protect society. It has customers in more than 150 countries, comprising more than 400 airlines and leasing customers, 160 armed forces and navies, and more than 5,000 power and nuclear customers.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
