GE Aviation and US component specialist Woodward have announced the formation of a joint venture (JV)  to develop fuel systems for GE's large commercial aircraft engines.

First announced in May last year, the JV will design, develop and service fuel system components, which will include the inlet and fuel nozzle for GE engine types such as the GE90, GEnx and GE9X.

As part of the deal, which also includes covering fuel systems for all future large commercial engines, GE has paid Woodward around $250m for a stake in the JV.

Tom Gendron, chairman of Colorado-headquartered Woodward, said the JV will “leverage both companies' respective strengths and optimise fuel system performance."
