MTU Aero Engines cooperates with XAE

MTU Aero Engines will soon use finished parts made in China to manufacture commercial engine components. On September 22, MTU concluded a deal with Chinese company Xi’an Aero-Engine (XAE) for the supply of 52 finished parts, which will go into commercial engine models.

The 52 items procured include rotating and stationary rings, disks, and small turned/milled parts. They are destined for use in the commercial engines V2500, GP7000, PW2000 and smaller Pratt & Whitney Canada engines. The first deliveries are scheduled to arrive at MTU in Munich in the course of the first quarter of next year. The value of the procurement contracts is expected to increase to six million euros by 2016.

Xi’an Aero-Engine, an aero-engine R&D base, is one of the major players in China’s aviation industry. The company has broad aero engine and gas turbine production capacity.
