Eurojet, the consortium responsible for the EJ200 engine installed in the Eurofighter Typhoon, has signed a contract with the NATO Eurofighter & Tornado Management Agency (NETMA) for the delivery of 56 new EJ200 engines for the German Air Force.
The contract signed in Munich between General Miguel Ángel Martín Pérez, General Manager of NETMA, and Gerhard Bähr, Managing Director of Eurojet, includes EJ200 engines for a new order for Tranche 4 Typhoon fighter aircraft. The production of the engine modules is carried out on site by the four partner companies of the consortium: Rolls-Royce, MTU Aero Engines, ITP Aero and Avio Aero. As a partner of the German Air Force, final assembly of the engines is carried out at MTU Aero Engines. Delivery to the German customer will begin in 2023.
“This signing of the contract is a clear vote of confidence in the platform and in the performance and sustainability of the EJ200 engines that power it. In addition, it shows a high level of trust in the consortium and its European industrial base and will secure highly qualified jobs in the aviation industry in the years to come, ”said Eurojet boss Gerhard Bähr.
