Meggitt selected by Lockheed Martin for multi-million dollar contract to supply fuel cell for the C130J Super Hercules

Meggitt PLC, a leading international company specialising in high performance components and subsystems for the aerospace, defence and selected energy markets, has been selected by Lockheed Martin to supply fuel bladders for its C130J Super Hercules platform.  The contract is valued at $16.5 million and deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2020.

 

Meggitt will provide long-life, lightweight fuel bladders. Using innovative polyurethane technology, these fuel bladders are highly flexible, durable and, importantly, maintenance-free.

 

Chris Allen, President of Meggitt’s Airframe Systems division, said: “We are delighted to be working with Lockheed Martin on this crucial programme. The Super Hercules is one of the hardest working aircraft in the world, refueling, transporting, firefighting and performing reconnaissance.  We are proud that Meggitt innovation, through our durable fuel bladders, will support these daily activities.”
