Rolls-Royce Corp. said Monday that the U.S. Air Force has awarded its Indianapolis operations an $8.5 million contract to provide spare engine parts for the C-130J military transport aircraft.

The engine that powers the C-130 is produced in Indianapolis. The contract to provide parts for the engine runs through 2011, Rolls-Royce said.

The agreement follows a similar contract in May, in which Rolls-Royce received $80 million to provide spare engines and parts for the C-130 flown by the Air Force, Marine Corps, Royal Norwegian Air Force and Indian Air Force.

Rolls-Royce, part of London-based Rolls-Royce Group PLC, is the region's second-largest manufacturer, behind Eli Lilly and Co., with about 4,300 local employees.
