The contract covers a variety of turboprop, turboshaft and turbofan engines for the complete service life of those programmes. The work will take place at GKN Fokker Elmo facilities in the Netherlands and China. Deliveries to Pratt & Whitney’s Final Assembly Line will continue as previously defined.
