Figeac Aéro has been awarded a 10-year contract by Safran Aircraft Engines for the production of the TRV exhaust casing for the CFM LEAP-1B engine fitted to the Boeing 737MAX.
More than €30 million over 10 years for Figeac Aéro
Figeac Aéro has just been entrusted by Safran Aircraft Engines with the production of the TRV (Turbine Rear Vane) exhaust casing for the CFM LEAP-1B engine which equips the Boeing 737 MAX family. A contract worth more than €30 million over 10 years for Figeac Aéro. The part to be produced is made of inconel (an alloy consisting mainly of nickel, chromium, iron, magnesium and titanium) and requires advanced technical know-how both in terms of its dimensions, the complexity of its manufacturing process, and its high volumes. The first deliveries of TRV casings are expected during the second half of 2024, with production ramping up in 2025.
Already present on other CFM Leap engines
Figeac Aéro already produces engine parts for the CFM Leap-1B but also for other CFM Leap engines. And in particular intermediate casing ferrules (VCI) for the Leap-1A and Leap-1B engines as well as the intervein ferrules for the three versions of the CFM Leap family: 1A on the Airbus A320neo family, 1B on the Boeing 737 MAX family and 1C on the Comac C919.
And on the nacelles of Airbus A320neo equipped with CFM Leap-1A
Extension of an existing contract signed in May 2023, Figeac Aéro also produces metal parts with high added value for the nacelles of Airbus A320neo family aircraft equipped with CFM Leap-1A engines. Lasting 10 years, this extended contract is worth nearly €140 million with production split between Figeac and Casablanca.
