Mumbai: Tata Advanced Materials Ltd (TAML) on Monday said its contract to supply components for Austria’s FACC Operation GmbH had been extended for 10 years. FACC supplies some of the components that go into Rolls-Royce aircraft engines.
In addition to the composite engine components of the current contract, the agreement will also include parts that will go into engines such as the Trent 1000, and the Trent XWB.
The product line of light-weight components is expected to lead to reduction of fuel consumption, improvement in efficiency, and noise reduction on the new generation aircraft Airbus A350 XWB and Boeing 787.
In a statement, the company said TAML will now be the only Rolls-Royce approved composite manufacturing facility in India that holds over 35 individual special process approvals.
Sudhi Ranjan Mukherjee, chief executive officer, TAML, said the association with FACC began in 2009 for the manufacture and supply of composite engine components for Rolls-Royce engines.
“We are confident that the business relationship between the two organisations will continue to flourish and make a significant contribution to composite aerospace manufacturing in India," Mukherjee said.
TAML is focused on composite manufacturing and solutions, catering to the demands of the aerospace, space, defence and industrial composites.
