Pratt & Whitney has won a sole-source contract worth as much as U$870 million to sustain the TF33 engines that power the Air Force’s B-52H Stratofortress and E-3 Sentry aircraft.

The base contract, awared by the Defense Logistics Agency, is for six years, with an optional four-year extension. The initial award value of the firm-fixed-price and cost-type contract is US$40.7 million.

The deal also has a six-month transition period. If the Pentagon exercises all options with Pratt & Whitney, work would be completed in April 2034. The company will sustain about 1,000 TF33 engines under the contract, including providing maintenance, spare parts, program management, field service, repairs and engineering support.

Work will take place at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma and other Air Force locations, as well as Pratt & Whitney’s Atlanta-based Southern Logistics Center.
