DANBURY, Conn. - Praxair Surface Technologies (PST) has been awarded a contract by Rolls-Royce. Over the 10-year contract, PST will apply its Tribomet abrasive coatings to rotating components in jet engines of widebody aircraft. The firm said that the coatings help prevent frictional heating, increase fuel efficiency, and extend component life. The project is to begin in mid-2017, and will be serviced from PST's coating operations in Indianapolis in the U.S. and Weston-super-Mare in the U.K.

The contract supports coating operations for Rolls-Royce Crosspointe, a facility located near Richmond, Virginia, that manufactures components for the Trent engine family.

LE HAVRE, France - Meeting its delivery challenge for the fastest and largest production ramp-up in civil aviation history, Safran Nacelles this month delivered the 100thnacelle for Airbus A320neo (New Engine Option) airliners powered by CFM International LEAP-1A jet engines.

The milestone nacelle was provided from Safran Nacelles' Colomiers, France integration facility to the A320 family aircraft final assembly line at nearby Toulouse-Blagnac Airport, where the unit was installed on an A320 for Indian carrier Air India.

Safran Nacelles attained the "century mark" only 11 months after it began deliveries of A320neo nacelles - once again validating the company's ability to achieve an unprecedented nacelle production ramp-up for the best-selling Airbus single-aisle jetliner family.

This accomplishment is the result of Safran Nacelles' experience in jet engine nacelles that covers everything from design and development to production and integration, according to A320neo Program Director Eric Lecossais.

Safran Nacelles' commitment to the unprecedented ramp-up in A320neo deliveries has included nearly $100 million in investments for processes, innovation, supply chain management and employee skills across all its production sites.

Lecossais said production output is targeted to reach 264 A320neo nacelles in 2017 (a delivery rate of one nacelle per day), then nearly doubling from 2018 to attain a record 690 nacelles in 2020.

In addition to meeting the output numbers, Lecossais noted the nacelles being delivered by Safran Nacelles are robust, reliable and meet the performance specifications.
