BENGALURU: Defence PSU Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) on Wednesday said it signed a contract with Honeywell, worth more than $100 million, for supply and manufacture of 88 engines (TPE331-12B), kits along with maintenance and support services to power its Hindustan Trainer Aircraft (HTT-40).
“HAL has successfully developed a basic trainer aircraft (HTT-40) to address the training requirements of the Indian Air Force (IAF). There is a potential requirement of 70 aircraft. The contract for the same with IAF is under advanced stage of approval,” HAL CMD R Madhavan said.
Eric Walters, senior director (OE sales), Honeywell said the TPE331-12 family of engines has proven itself in operations all over the world, and we have committed to support and deliver engines as well as kits within the stipulated schedule to meet the requirements of the IAF.
“Honeywell is committed to support export of HTT-40 aircraft in coming years along with other engine programmes which are currently on radar. This contract would pave the way for future collaboration between HAL and Honeywell,” Walters said.
The TPE331-12B engine is a single shaft turboprop engine with integral inlet and gearbox, two-stage centrifugal compressor, power turbine, gearbox, three stage axial turbine and turbine exhaust diffuser as well as EEC for reliable power and outstanding operational characteristics.
“The HTT-40 prototypes are powered by TPE331-12B engines and have been serving well since 2014. Entering into this ‘manufacturing and repair licence agreement’ for Honeywell TPE331-12B Turboprop engine marks a major milestone in the execution of 70 HTT-40 aircraft contract with IAF,” HAL added.
The PSU said it was working closely with Honeywell for its support for export potential of HTT-40, and added: “HAL and Honeywell are exploring other areas such as 1MW turbo generators, manufacturing, repair & overhaul of TPE 331-10GP/12JR engines for variants of the Dornier aircraft,” the statement read.
