Turbomeca introduces Makila 2B engine for latest EC225e

Turbomeca (Safran) has designed a new Makila variant to offer increased performance to the newest Airbus Helicopters EC225e. The new combustion chamber and high-power turbine blades will permit take-off a significant increase of MTOW in CAT A conditions.

Reducing maintenance costs, other Makila 2B improvements provide an increased TBO of 4,000 hours.

Executive VP Programmes Cyril Poetsch confirms: “The Makila 2B retains the familiar architecture, design and maintenance concept of its popular 2A1 predecessor and retrofit customers will require no specific training or tools to enable them to quickly return their helicopters to operational status.”

First test bench runs of the Makila 2B are ongoing and certification is planned for end 2015. Over 2,200 Makila engines provide safe and reliable power in challenging environments around the world. Together they have accumulated over ten million flight hours.
