Fokker Elmo, part of Fokker Technologies, has signed a contract with Snecma (Safran) valued at $60m for the delivery of Engine Build-up Units (EBU) electrical harnesses for the LEAP engine, a product of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between Snecma (Safran) and GE. The LEAP engine was selected by Airbus for its A320 Neo, by Boeing as the exclusive power plant on the 737 MAX and COMAC for the C919 aircraft models. To date, several thousands of orders have been placed for LEAP engines. For Fokker Elmo the production activities will be related to several LEAP engine variants and work will start immediately in Hoogerheide, the Netherlands, in close collaboration with Snecma.
