Rolls-Royce Wins $373M IDIQ to Repair KC-130J Engines for US Marine Corps, Kuwait

Rolls-Royce has won a five-year, $372.5 million contract from the U.S. Navy to provide depot-level repair for the AE21000D3 engines of KC-130J aerial refueling aircraft for the U.S. Marine Corps and Kuwait.

The Defense Department said Thursday the Naval Air Systems Command received three offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract via an electronic request for proposals and will obligate funds on each delivery order.

The company will perform work in California, Indiana, Canada, Portugal and the U.K. through April 2022.

KC-130J tankers, manufactured by the Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), support aerial refueling for tactical and tiltrotor aircraft as well as rapid ground refueling operations for armor or tactical vehicles.
