Wide-Ranging Solutions in Nacelles and Aerostructures

Through our subsidiary Middle River Aerostructure Systems, we are a world-leading OEM for thrust reversers, engine nacelle components and specialised aerostructures with a heritage of more than 90 years.

Our global team of engineers work closely with engine makers, airplane manufacturers and aircraft operators to provide comprehensive capabilities ranging from design and analysis to product development and series production. Our systematic design-to-cost approach maximises value for customers by delivering products efficiently and effectively.

Flying with less fuel burn, emissions and noise

We innovate our aircraft engine nacelles to trim aircraft fuel consumption and carbon emissions. Starting right from the conceptualisation and design stage, we collaborate with engine OEMs to develop integrated propulsion systems that help to lead to engines with lower weight, less fuel burn, less community noise and yet have better aerodynamics. We are currently involved with two nacelle systems that have been developed for integrated propulsion systems. One is for the GE Passport engine on Bombardier’s Global 7500 business jet, while the other is CFM International’s LEAP-1C engine for the COMAC C919 jetliner. Both programmes are developed with Safran Nacelles through our Nexcelle joint venture.

Our design features typically have individual entitlements of less than 1% as measured by fuel burn (consumption), and add up eventually to become part of the overall effort to cut fuel burn and emissions progressively on new aircraft.

What We Do

Design, Development and Production

We design, develop and produce the nacelle components on the following major programmes:

  • Airbus A320neo powered by the LEAP 1A engines (in partnership with Safran Nacelles)
  • Comac C919 powered by the LEAP 1C engines (in partnership with Safran Nacelles)
  • Bombardier Global 7500 powered by the GE passport engines (in partnership with Safran Nacelles)
  • Comac ARJ21 powered by the CF34-10A engines
  • Boeing 747-8 powered by the GEnx-2B engines
  • CF6 engines that are widely used on both civil airliners and military transport aircraft
