Multi-million dollar LEAP engine sensors win for Meggitt

Meggitt, a leading international company specialising in high performance components and sub-systems for aerospace, defence and energy, announces that Meggitt Sensing Systems has been selected by Snecma (Safran group) to supply a key package of sensor products for the LEAP engine. The LEAP is an entirely new baseline turbofan engine developed by CFM International(1) that will power the next generation of single-aisle commercial jets. The agreement covers the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1C versions of the engine selected to power the Airbus A320neo and Comac C919 respectively. Meggitt estimates that the agreement will generate gross sales (including original equipment, spares and repairs) of more than $200 million over the life of these engines.

Meggitt will supply high performance sensors right across the engine, measuring vibration, shaft speeds and a range of critical temperatures. LEAP engine operators will be supported by Meggitt's global customer service organisation.

The LEAP sensor contracts were signed as Snecma presented Meggitt Sensing Systems' Basingstoke operation with a best supplier award for excellent operational performance on CFM56 sensors.

Peter Huber, President of Meggitt Sensing Systems commented:

"We have been an engine sensor supplier to Snecma for more than 30 years but the scope of this award takes that relationship to another level."
