Goodrich Corporation has been selected by Boeing to provide the Fuel Quantity Indicating System and Fuel Management Software for the new Boeing 7E7 Dreamliner, a new family of mid-sized aircraft scheduled to enter service in 2008.
The potential revenue to Goodrich over the life of the program is estimated to be $100 million.
‘This is Goodrich’s first selection on the 7E7 program,’ said Marshall Larsen, Goodrich Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. ‘Goodrich has a long history as a key supplier to Boeing across its wide range of commercial and military aircraft, and we are delighted to be continuing this relationship on the new generation of Boeing commercial aircraft.’
The Fuel Quantity Indicating System will measure the fuel quantity in the aircraft fuel tanks and the Fuel Management Software will control the refuel process and manage the fuel supply during the flight.
The system, consisting of fuel sensors, electronics, software, harnesses and the wing refuel panel, will be designed and manufactured by Goodrich’s Fuel & Utility Systems business, based in Vergennes, Vermont.
