Rolls-Royce receives $183 Million service contract for U.S. Army Kiowa Warrior engines

Rolls-Royce has received a contract valued at $183 million to service M250 engines, which power the U.S. Army’s fleet of OH-58D Kiowa Warrior scout helicopters.

The contract, to support 500 M250 engines on more than 300 aircraft, begins in July 2012 for a year, and the Army has options to extend the contract for four additional years.

Rolls-Royce has supported the Kiowa Warrior fleet for 13 years, including placing Field Service Representatives on more than 20 in-theatre deployments to support the Army. Rolls-Royce currently has 23 Field Service Representatives supporting 11 Kiowa Warrior units.

“Rolls-Royce is focused on providing affordable, dependable support to help our military customers complete their missions every day,” said Dan Korte, president of Rolls-Royce Defence. “For years, we have been working hard to ensure these Army crews come home safely after every mission, and we are committed to providing our full support so that continues.”

The M250-powered Kiowa Warriors have completed more than two million flight hours, including more than 750,000 hours in combat. The new contracts are part of the Rolls-Royce MissionCareâ„¢ support system for military customers, a suite of services tailored to help each customer meet their mission. Rolls-Royce is the only company to have MissionCare type contracts in place with all branches of the US military, including the Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army and Coast Guard.
