Meggitt lands multi-million dollar fuel system award from Sikorsky

Meggitt PLC, a leading international company specialising in high performance components and sub-systems for the aerospace, defence and energy markets, has won a long-term contract award for the Sikorsky S-92® helicopter sponson fuel system. The contract starts immediately and will run until 2030, with deliveries starting in 2015. The proven and technologically-advanced S-92® helicopter is certified to the most stringent safety requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The aircraft's sponson fuel system, which contains a structural composite housing, a fuel cell and complete fuel integration system, derives from Meggitt's long experience in composites and fuel containment. The new design of the multi-piece composite structure reduces manufacturing risk and the cost of field repairs.

The sponson fuel system will be produced in our state-of-the-art facility in Rockmart, GA, USA.

Meggitt Chief Executive Stephen Young commented: “Meggitt has long been expert in flexible fuel cell design, recently launching an IED-resistant design for land vehicles. This award takes us to another level. It marks our first, fully-certified fuel containment system and gives us access to the upper level fuel assembly market, consistent with the strategic objectives of our Polymers & Composites division.”
