Nexcelle is the identity for new engine nacelle joint venture of GE's Middle River Aircraft Systems and Safran's Aircelle

Nexcelle has been chosen as the name for the innovative joint venture company created by GE's Middle River Aircraft Systems (MRAS) and the Safran group's Aircelle company to develop engine nacelles for next-generation integrated propulsion systems.

This identity - along with its stylized logo of two converging swirls - underscores the joint venture's cutting-edge approach to designing, manufacturing and supporting nacelles for new aircraft propulsion systems that will be more operationally efficient, cost-effective and aerodynamically optimized. 

Nexcelle will develop its nacelle products for engine applications of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between Snecma of the Safran group and General Electric Company.  CFM International is recognized as one of the aviation industry's most successful joint ventures, having delivered 20,000 aircraft engines during its 35-year history.

"Through Nexcelle's partnership with CFM International, we're creating a new way of doing business by evolving advanced propulsion systems that are truly integrated from the engine, nacelle, pylon and wing interface point of view," said Nexcelle President Steve Walters.  "This process will benefit from a seamless approach that is unique to the aviation industry, as Nexcelle has modeled its operating practices, collaborative tools and business processes directly on those of CFM International and our shared parent companies."

Nexcelle's responsibility covers complete nacelles and nacelle subsystems for CFM International engines in applications on both new and existing aircraft.
