Volvo Aero will deliver all nozzles and turbines for the Vulcain 2 engine of the Ariane 5 rockets.

Snecma and Volvo Aero agreed to a five-year partnership involving the series production of 37 nozzles and the same number of turbines, which will be manufactured by Volvo Aero in Trollhättan from the end of 2009 until mid-2014. The agreement means that Volvo Aero will deliver all nozzles and turbines for the Vulcain 2 engine of the Ariane 5 rockets. Accordingly, production in the space propulsion area has now been secured at Trollhättan for a further five years. No new jobs will result from this agreement. However, it will guarantee work for many of the employees of Volvo Aero’s space propulsion operations.
