Pratt & Whitney signed a 10-year agreement with Volvo Aero Norway to produce military engine shafts for P&W engines including the F135 powering the F-35 Lightning II and the F119 powering the F-22 Raptor. The contract has the potential value of $61 million. Volvo Aero Norway produces shafts for several P&W engines including the F100, F119, and F135 and produced all the shafts used during the F135 engine development program. These engine shafts are safety critical components that drive the engine's fan compressor allowing optimal engine performance, and they are designed to withstand severe loads and torque. Volvo Aero Norway will also produce the intermediate case and diffuser case for the F135. Ongoing discussions are being held between P&W and Volvo Aero Norway to expand the involvement on the F135 engine program with other components.
