GKN Aerospace and GE Sign Major Agreement on Industry-leading Aero Engines

GKN Aerospace and GE have deepened their long-term partnership on a series of industry-leading engines including the GEnx programme, the fastest-selling high-thrust engine. The new agreement focuses on three key areas: new technology insertion, fan case production and assembly, and repair of high volume, complex engines structures.

The ground-breaking technology insertion programmes on the GEnx will focus on alternative material solutions, providing a more sustainable manufacturing footprint for several products currently flying. GKN Aerospace will provide component design expertise as well as its latest technologies, to help drive the GEnx programme towards its targets on carbon emissions reduction targets and cost reduction. Upgraded components are expected to go through development, validation and insertion from 2024 to 2030.

GKN Aerospace has also secured life-of-programme contracts under the new agreement. It will now deliver 100% of GEnx, CF6 and GE90 fan cases, as well as 50% of GE9X fan case assembly for the duration of the programme. 

The final element of the enhanced partnership sees GKN Aerospace join GE Aerospace’s repair network, supporting the GEnx with specialised repair content. GKN Aerospace will deploy its expertise in structural design-and-make of advanced fabrications to repair high volume, complex structures across its global repair network.
