T700 engine General Electric Co. in Lynn, MA received a delivery order amount of $160 million as part of a $2.43 billion firm-fixed-price contract for T-700 engine spare parts. The T700/CT7 engine family powers 21 types of rotary and fixed-wing aircraft for close to 130 customers in 55 countries. In the U.S. military arsenal, the T700 and its variants are the primary engines of the US helicopter fleet. They power the ubiquitous Blackhawk/Seahawk family of helicopters (UH-60, MH-60, SH-60, HH-60), other utility helicopters (SH-2G Super Seasprite, Bell UH-1Y Huey, US101 Marine One), and attack helicopters (AH-1W and AH-1Z SuperCobra, AH-64 Apache). Work will be performed in Lynn, MA and is expected to be complete by Dec. 30, 2008. This was a sole source contract initiated on May 11, 2005 by the Army Aviation and Missile Command in Redstone Arsenal, AL (W58RGZ-04-D-0057).
