LONDON (BNS): The UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) has signed a 10-year contract with Rolls-Royce, worth £865 million to support the Royal Air Force’s (RAF's) fleet of Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft which are powered by EJ200 engines, assembled by Rolls-Royce in Bristol.

According to a news release by the UK Ministry of Defence, Rolls-Royce will provide the RAF with a guaranteed level of availability for its EJ200 engines.

“This contract will ensure that our Typhoon aircraft continue to meet their operational commitments as a cornerstone of the UK’s air defence capabilities," said Quentin Davies, Minister for Defence Equipment and Support, as reported in the release.

“This contract meets the challenge set by the MOD to industry of delivering affordable and innovative support solutions for the Typhoon programme," said Martin Fausset, Managing Director of Rolls-Royce Defence Aerospace, according to a press release issued by the Rolls-Royce.

Rolls-Royce undertakes all aspects of EJ200 engine support, including the provision of replacement engines to meet customer demands, and technical support both on-base and from the Rolls-Royce Operations Centre in Bristol.

Rolls-Royce support operations are centred at the Typhoon Propulsion Support Facility at RAF Coningsby, where the RAF’s Typhoon squadrons are based.

The contract will also provide support to deployed operating bases and the Falkland Islands.

This new contract represents the conclusion of the work undertaken with Rolls-Royce on support for the engine. It will play a major role in ensuring the availability of the Typhoon fleet to meet its operational commitments.
