Volvo Aero Norway (VAN) signed a 10-year contract for continued production and deliveries of jet engine shafts to Pratt & Whitney. The contract also covers supply of shafts for the P&W F135 engine for the production phase of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. VAN is the principal supplier of the shafts for one of the engine variants with which the JSF can be equipped. The engine program is expected to last until about 2040. VAN’s deliveries to P&W consist of several variants of shafts, for both aero engines and gas turbines for industrial use. Deliveries for the F16 engine are also included in the agreement. VAN has already supplied shafts for the whole development program for the new JSF F135 engine.
