Turbomeca signs support contract with Boeing Defence Australia


Turbomeca, December 10, 2014 - Turbomeca Australasia (Safran) signed on November 2014 a contract with Boeing Defence Australia to support a new training system for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) helicopters.

Turbomeca will provide to Royal Australian Navy and Australian Army with a Support By The Hour (SBH) contract for a new fleet of 15 Arrius 2B2-powered EC135 T2 helicopters.

These helicopters will be based in HMAS Albatross Nowra, New South Wales, home of the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet Air Arm.

The Helicopter Aircrew Training System (HATS) will train Australian crews for the new generation of advanced combat helicopters such as ARH Tiger, CH-47F Chinook and MRH-90. HATS is the seventh stage (Phase 7) of an Australian Defence Force acquisition program called JP 9000. Through the JP9000 acquisition program, Australia will acquire a large fleet of multi-role Helicopters.

The HATS program will expand the training capability and provide rotary wing training outcomes for the Australian Army and Navy. Turbomeca Australasia (TAA) is delighted to be a partner in this Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) solution.

Support services for the Arrius 2B2 engines will be provided by Turbomeca Australasia (TAA) based at Bankstown Airport NSW.

The signing of this contract with Boeing Defence Australia supplements services already provided by TAA in support of the Tiger and MRH propulsion systems and cements TAA as the leading provider of gas turbine engines to the ADF Helicopter Fleet.

Turbomeca (Safran) is the leading helicopter engine manufacturer, and has produced 70,000 turbines based on its own designs since the company was founded. Offering the widest range of engines in the world and dedicated to 2,500 customers in 155 countries, Turbomeca provides a proximity service thanks to its 15 sites, 30 proximity maintenance centers, 18 Repair & Overhaul Centers, and 90 Field representatives and Field technicians. Microturbo, the subsidiary of Turbomeca, is the European leader in turbojet engines for missiles, drones and auxiliary power units.
