Meggitt to Supply Fuel Cells for BLACKHAWK

Five-Year Contract Valued at $21 Million

Meggitt announced on 16 July that it has won a five-year contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency, valued at $21 million, to supply fuel cell equipment for the UH-60 BLACKHAWK helicopter until 2022.

Meggitt’s crashworthy, self-seal fuel tanks, which meet the ultra-rigorous standards of flexibility, strength, impact and cut-and-tear resistance of US MIL-T-27422B, have stopped fuel spillage and reduced fire-related death and injury in survivable helicopter crashes to almost zero. Meggitt will manufacture the UH-60 fuel cell equipment at its facility in Rockmart, GA.

Meggitt is proud of the trust that DLA Richmond has once again placed in Meggitt to provide fuel cell equipment for the BLACKHAWK helicopter, underlining the exceptional performance record of our fuel cell technology, which is now present on virtually all US military helicopters,” stated Meggitt Polymers & Composites President, Stuart Watson.
