Safran’s nacelle manufacturing subsidiary Aircelle has started production of the titanium engine exhaust systems for Boeing’s new 777X aircraft at its facility in Le Havre, France.

Aircelle said it has carried out the first laser cutting of a titanium sheet which it will use in the initial 777X exhaust system assembly.

The commencing of manufacturing work followed Aircelle completing the exhaust system's critical design review, which confirmed the company's design work and enabled Boeing to give the manufacturing go-ahead.

“These two major milestones were achieved on schedule and are fully aligned to Boeing's programme standards, underscoring Aircelle's commitment as a world-class designer and supplier of nacelle systems,” said Aircelle president Jean-Paul Alary.
