  • Military engines: Local power

    News | 30 Apr 2007 23:00 | Julian Moxon

    <P>Two smaller engine manufacturers are benefiting from a growing European military helicopter industry. France's Turbomeca and Spain's ITP play key roles on two European-designed turboshafts that power the Eurocopter Tiger, AgustaWestland EH101 and NH Industries NH90.</P> <P>On the back of a 2003 Spanish army order for Tiger attack helicopters, ITP joined the MTU Turbomeca Rolls-Royce MTR390 engine programme. The company has taken a 25% stake in development, and 20% in production, of an enhanced MTR390E producing 14% more take-off power than the original 1,285shp (950kW) engine. </P> <P>In all, 342 MTR390-2Cs are on order for the 160 Tigers being procured by France and Germany and to be delivered by 2011. The same engines are being assembled at Turbomeca Australasia's Sydney facility for Australia's Tigers. Delivery of the enhanced engines for the Spanish helicopters is scheduled to begin in 2009. </P> <P>In April ITP announced it was planning to set up a dedicated helicopter engine mhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Military-engines-Local-power-213590/
