Rolls-Royce secures contract extensions for UK fleets

Rolls-Royce has secured contract extensions that will see the company provide support for engines on the UK’s C-130 Hercules transport and VC10 tanker fleets.

The contracts are worth almost £100m to Rolls-Royce.

Following this amendment, the Hercules Integrated Operational Support (HIOS) contract, which is delivered jointly by Rolls-Royce, Marshall Aerospace and Lockheed Martin, will provide support for the C-130 fleet until 2015.

Rolls-Royce teams in the UK and Indianapolis, US, provide comprehensive servicing for the AE 2100D3 engine, which powers the C-130J aircraft and the T56 engine on the C-130K.
