Marine Corps Tanker Aircraft Engine Contract


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Rolls-Royce Plc
: 08 April, 2010  (Application Story)
Rolls-Royce will supply aero-engines for the KC-130J Super Hercules tanker fleet operated by the US Marine Corps
Rolls-Royce has announced a $51 million engine production and MissionCare services contract with US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR). The contract is in support of Rolls-Royce AE 2100D3-powered KC-130J tanker aircraft, flown by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) and exercises the first option year of a four-year contract with NAVAIR.

Dennis Jarvi, President Defense North America for Rolls-Royce, said: “Rolls-Royce has been providing AE 2100D3 engines and support to the USMC KC-130J program for more than seven years, accumulating more than 350,000 flight hours and receiving consistently high customer ratings on MissionCare performance.”

“Rolls-Royce is committed to improving fleet readiness for the USMC, allowing them to concentrate on performing their critical missions whenever they are required.”

MissionCare is a comprehensive engine-care program customized to meet the needs of Rolls-Royce defense customers. The KC-130J MissionCare contract is truly 'power by the hour” - a single contract line item number is used to pay a fixed price based on aircraft hours flown. Contract performance is measured almost exclusively against the fleet-driven performance metric of engine availability.

Under the terms of the agreement, which is administered by NAVAIR at Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland, Rolls-Royce will provide engines, engine management, support, trouble shooting, parts supply and logistics support for the aircraft, operating at three US Marine Air Stations: Miramar, CA, Cherry Point, NC and Okinawa, Japan.
