Chromalloy announced today that it has been selected by the U.S. Air Force to provide module repairs during maintenance on the F108 gas turbine engine that powers the KC135R tanker aircraft.
The contract award is valued $15.8 million plus options, bringing the total value of the contract to approximately $38 million over three years. This is a follow-on contract to an earlier agreement for module repairs provided by Chromalloy.
"Chromalloy’s gas turbine engine repairs and services allow military and commercial aircraft operators to avoid the cost associated with buying new components and modules," said Armand Lauzon, President. "Our repairs have been demonstrated time and again to offer lasting durability and reliability for a wide range of engine modules, components and other parts."
Under the contract Chromalloy will overhaul the 13-15 rotor stator modules, including the turbine frame. Work will be performed during periodic heavy maintenance of the engines. The KC135R fleet includes more than 400 aircraft that are deployed by the Air Mobility Command for refueling military aircraft in flight.
"We look forward to continuing our long-term relationship with the Air Force to deliver superior service," Lauzon said. "Our demonstrated success servicing the aircraft engine modules will continue to keep the Air Mobility Command fleet mission ready."
