NORDAM announces agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada to support new generation of Gulfstream aircraft

NORDAM announced today a contract, signed in 2010, to design, engineer, develop and manufacture the inlet, nacelle and thrust reverser – and provide propulsion system build‐up – for Pratt & Whitney Canada's new PurePower® PW814GA and PW815GA engines to be used on the Gulfstream G500 & G600 aircraft. Announced on October 14, in Savannah, Georgia, these will be the latest generation aircraft from Gulfstream, a world‐renowned manufacturer of premium business jets since 1958.

“This business‐jet size product is also the largest IPPS (integrated powerplant system) and thrust reverser NORDAM has ever built, and we are proud that Pratt & Whitney Canada trusted our technological capability to build a product that will serve two aircraft platforms over an expected period of more than 25 years,” NORDAM CEO Meredith Siegfried said.

“After four years in development, we're delighted to announce this opportunity to support our long‐time customer Pratt & Whitney Canada,” Siegfried added. “This integrated powerplant system has the potential to span across other large‐cabin, long range business jets – a market that's proven its economic resilience and has a promising outlook for future growth. When the program is in full production, we will have added approximately 300 new jobs to Tulsa.”

The suite of revolutionary features that NORDAM brings to these P&WC powerplants is impressive: There is an all‐composite asymmetrical pivot door thrust reverser; cowl doors constructed using automated fiber‐placement (AFP); a one‐piece, composite, double‐degree‐of‐ freedom acoustic inlet‐barrel liner (a first for NORDAM); and use of AFP “out of autoclave” vacuum‐bag cured material. The result is the best aerodynamic and acoustic performance at the lowest possible weight which maximizes fuel efficiency!
