Rolls-Royce lands more military work

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Rolls-Royce Corp. this week was awarded a $34.2 million modification to an engine maintenance contract from the Department of Defense’s Naval Air Systems Command.

About a third of the work will be done at Rolls-Royce’s Tibbs Avenue plant in Indianapolis; workers in Oakland, Calif., will handle the remainder. Work is expected to be complete in September 2012, the federal agency said Monday.

Rolls-Royce makes the MV-22 AE1107C turboshaft engine used in the Marine version of the V-22 Osprey, a tilt-rotor aircraft used for military transport.

The company’s Indianapolis manufacturing facility employs about 4,000, making the British aerospace firm the city’s second-largest manufacturer behind Eli Lilly and Co.

Last year, the local facility landed more than $500 million in U.S. government work.
