Meggitt wins Airbus A320neo fire protection system

Meggitt, the international aerospace, defence and electronics group, has enhanced its position as a major fire protection systems supplier to Airbus, winning the fire detection, control and APU and engine extinguishing systems for the A320neo programme.

The award follows the integration of Meggitt's established fire detection and control capability with the fire suppression equipment of recently-acquired Pacific Scientific Aerospace business, HTL.

Dennis Hutton, President of Meggitt Safety Systems, explained:

"The ability for suppliers to offer complete ATA Chapter 26 fire protection systems has become increasingly important as aircraft manufacturers continue to simplify procurement and logistics. In some cases, bids will only be accepted from suppliers who have the complete capability under one roof.

"The APU/engine fire extinguishing system on the existing A320 family is shared between two suppliers. Backed by longstanding relationships with this customer and our excellent reputation for on-time delivery and quality, this integration has enabled us to compete for and win a sole source position on this exciting programme."
