Tata-GE aircraft engine JV order book full for next 5 years

Hyderabad: A joint venture between Tata Advanced Systems and General Electric, which is setting up an aircraft engine component manufacturing-cum-research hub in Hyderabad, has already got orders for the next five years, a top official said.

The facility is expected to be ready for manufacturing by the year end, catering to GE's global demands as well as India's defence market. The joint venture will also sup a skilling centre to train youth in engine manufacturing.

"This facility will manufacture components for Leading Edge Aviation Propulsion (LEAP) engines for jets and will cater to aircraft manufacturers like Airbus and Boeing and supply components for India and global markets of GE," Vishal Wanchoo, president of GE South Asia, told journalists in Hyderabad on Monday at the venue of the ground-breaking ceremony. "We have already received 200 orders from 35 aerospace companies even before the start of the facility," he said.
