Rolls-Royce snags US Air Force contract worth up to US$2.6 bil

WASHINGTON – The United States arm of Britain’s Rolls-Royce yesterday won a contract worth up to US$2.6 billion (RM10.9 billion) to supply engines for the US Air Force’s B-52H bomber fleet, said the force.

The company’s Indianapolis, Indiana, manufacturing unit was awarded a US$500.9 million “indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity” contract over six years for replacement engines for the B-52s, the long-range Stratofortress bombers that have been a mark of US strategic power since the 1950s.

The contract has a potential total value of US$2.6 billion “if all options are exercised”, said the air force.

It chose Rolls-Royce for the contract ahead of GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney. – AFP, September 25, 2021
