Volvo Aero entered into an agreement with Pratt & Whitney to join P&W’s Geared Turbofan engine program. Under this arrangement, Volvo Aero will be responsible for three major components for both the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) and the Bombardier CSeries aircraft engin­es. For Volvo Aero, the agreement is expected to result in sales of SEK 50 billion during 40 years, the largest involvement in a commercial engine program ever. According to the agreement, Volvo Aero will participate as a partner in design, development, production, and aftermarket in this engine project, with overall responsibility for the Intermediate Case and Turbine Exhaust Case as well as Low Pressure Turbine Shaft production responsibility.
