LORD Corporation has signed an agreement to design and build the engine mount system for the Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1400G engine on the Russian-built Irkut MC-21 family of aircraft.

The contract was awarded by Bombardier Belfast, which is responsible for the design, manufacture and aftermarket support of the complete engine nacelle system.

LORD said the MC-21 engine mounting system attaches the engine directly to the pylon using fireproof stainless steel components in a statically determinant manner.

The firm has previously designed and built systems on aircraft including the 737, 757, 767 and MD90.
