FACC has signed a contract to supply fan cowls for the A330neo.

The contract, awarded by French engine manufacturer Aircelle (a Safran company), will see FACC develop and manufacture the carbon-fibre composite cowls at its facility in Reichersberg, Austria.

Delivery of the first cowls is planned for Q3 2016 and, depending on the project’s success, could generate FACC more than $100m in turnover.

The contract continues a near 20-year relationship between FACC and Aircelle, which collaborated on manufacturing bypass ducts for Embraer and Cessna business jets, for example.
