GKN Aerospace will provide low pressure turbine cases to Safran subsidiary Snecma as part of Silverjet's contract to supply engines for Cessna's upcoming Citation Latitude business jet.

Under the £10 million ($15.6 million) agreement, which was signed during the Paris air show, deliveries of the first cases are to take place this month and will then ramp up as the engine enters service in 2016.

"This contract win extends our 25 year-long partnership with Snecma on the CFM56 programme - for which we have reliably delivered high-quality LPT cases in large volumes," says Odd Tore Kurverud, president, GKN Engine Systems - Norway.

The Citation Latitude is scheduled for certification in 2015.
