Honeywell has won a five-year IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity) contract for the repair and overhaul of its T55-GA-714A engines that operate on the U.S. Army’s CH-47 Chinook helicopters. This contract award will ensure that the U.S. Army’s Chinook fleet has spare engines to sustain its future missions and overall readiness. The engines will be serviced at Honeywell’s new maintenance facility at the company’s Aerospace global headquarters in Phoenix.
“Honeywell remains committed to supporting the T55 engine and the CH-47F Chinook program with improved maintenance practices, expanded repair capacities and engine modernization improvements that will meet the helicopter’s needs for years to come,” said Dave Marinick, president, Engines & Power Systems. “Honeywell’s unparalleled T55 repair and overhaul facility was designed to provide the highest level of support for the U.S. Army’s needs today and in future missions. Every aspect of the layout and design of this new facility was carefully planned to ensure operational efficiency with U.S. Army mission readiness in mind.”
