Goodrich providing nacelle system for A320 family re-engining

  • 14-Mar-2011 12:49 EDT

The Pratt & Whitney PurePower 1100G engine, which will power the Airbus A320neo (new engine option), is expected to burn about 15% less fuel than current engines.

Airbus has selected Goodrich Corp. to provide the nacelle system for a new engine for the Airbus A320 family of single-aisle airplanes. Under the agreement, Goodrich will design the nacelle and thrust reversers for the Pratt & Whitney PurePower 1100G engine that will power the Airbus A320 family, designated the A320neo (new engine option). Goodrich will also perform engine buildup for the PurePower propulsion system. The nacelle system will be designed by Goodrich's Aerostructures business, headquartered in Chula Vista, CA. In addition, Goodrich Actuation Systems headquartered in Wolverhampton, England, and Goodrich's Engine Control and Electrical Power Systems will provide the design for the actuation systems utilized on the nacelle system, thrust reversers, and the variable area nozzle.
