GKN will manufacture casings for the PW1400G-JM engine aboard the Irkut MC-21.

GKN Aerospace agrees new partnership with Pratt & Whitney on the PurePower geared turbofan engine for the Irkut MC-21

GKN Aerospace and Pratt & Whitney have agreed a risk and revenue sharing partnership (RRSP) for the PurePower® PW1400G-JM engine, which will power the Irkut MC-21 mid-range, single aisle aircraft. GKN Aerospace expects this RRSP to be worth more than $650 million over the life of the programme.
This latest agreement gives GKN Aerospace responsibility for the design and manufacture of the turbine exhaust case (TEC) and the compressor intermediate case (IMC) for the PW1400G-JM engine. Engine certification is scheduled for the end of 2015 followed by entry into service in late 2017.
In September 2014, GKN Aerospace announced a risk and revenue sharing partnership for the PW1900G engine for the Embraer E190/195-E2, in an agreement the company estimated to be worth in excess of $2.5 billion over the life of the programme.
“We continue our long-term partnership with Pratt & Whitney, supplying these complex parts for their engines and constantly applying developments in technology to increase performance, reduce weight and material waste, and speed manufacture,” said Mike McCann, CEO of GKN Aerospace, Engine Systems. “Again, this latest RRSP sees us working with Pratt & Whitney from a base of certified parts which helps streamline development, reduce risk, simplify certification and ease maintenance once the aircraft is in service.” 
The PW1400G-JM engine is a derivative of the PW1100G-JM engine, developed for the Airbus A320neo. GKN Aerospace also has an RRSP with Pratt & Whitney for the same components for the A320neo and is responsible for the design and manufacture of all TECs and IMCs for Pratt & Whitney's PurePower geared turbofan engines, including the PW1200G, PW1500G, the PW1700G and the PW1900G engines.
