Triumph Group, Inc. announced that the US Army recently awarded its Triumph Integrated Systems business with a five-year maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) contract for indefinite quantity and delivery of engine fuel pump metering units for the CH-47 Chinook aircraft operating with a T55 engine.
The contract, valued at approximately US$50 million, will enable the Army to call upon the expertise of Triumph’s fuel pump maintenance and repair station for routine repairs and overhaul services. Triumph operates the only T55 engine fuel pump repair station in the world.
Triumph’s repair station specializes in MRO services for hydromechanical units (HMU) used in multiple commercial and military rotorcraft platforms. The station serves both original engine manufacturers and aircraft end users including commercial fleet owners, the US military and foreign military fleets. Triumph is also the leading designer of engine control units and fuel pumps, with more than 30,000 units currently in the field.
“We are proud to support the men and women in the US Army who use and rely on the Chinook every day as they protect freedom around the world,” said Frank Dubey, Executive Vice President of Triumph Integrated Systems. “This new maintenance and repair services contract will ensure the engine pumps we make for the T55 Chinook are repaired and maintained with the same level of quality and expertise used in our OEM manufacturing process, helping to keep the high demand Chinook fleet operating optimally.”
