COMAC selects Hamilton Sundstrand to provide C919 electric system

Commercial Aviation Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) has selected Hamilton Sundstrand to provide the electric power generation and distribution systems for its new C919 aircraft. Hamilton Sundstrand is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) .

The work is worth more than $1 billion in revenue over the life of the program.

The 150-class C919, which is expected to enter into service in 2016, will be China's first large commercial jetliner.

"Hamilton Sundstrand is honored to partner with COMAC to provide the electric system on the new C919 aircraft," said Hamilton Sundstrand President Alain Bellemare. "With this agreement, Hamilton Sundstrand continues to play a large role in the Chinese aviation industry's rapid growth."

"We are very pleased to work with Hamilton Sundstrand on our C919 program," said COMAC Chairman Zhang Qingwei. "Its proven aerospace technology will enable us to build a very competitive airplane for the global market."

With this win, Hamilton Sundstrand expands its already large presence in the Chinese aviation market, which began in 1985 with the development of the MA60 aircraft. Today, Hamilton Sundstrand is a key systems supplier on COMAC's 90-seat ARJ21 regional jet, supplying the electric power system, including the APS2600 Auxiliary Power Unit; the Ram Air Turbine; the high-lift actuation system, which includes flap and slat actuators, drive train, power drive units and controllers; fire protection systems; and the electrical power generation, primary distribution and emergency power system.

COMAC is the Chinese commercial aircraft manufacturer established in May 2008.
