Pratt & Whitney Books $737M Navy Contract Modification for F-135 Engine Spares

Pratt & Whitney, a Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) subsidiary, has received a $736.6 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy to provide military service branches and non-Department of Defense organizations with spare parts for the F-35 aircraft propulsion system.

The contractor will also deliver F-135 engine modules, support equipment and depot lay-in material to help meet the requirements of its customers, DOD said Friday.

More than half of the work will be performed at Pratt & Whitney’s East Hartford, Connecticut facility while eight other locations will be used to complete contract deliverables by December 2024.

The modification raised the ceiling amount of the sole-source, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. In September 2020, Pratt & Whitney was awarded the contract for the procurement of F-135 engine requirements.

The F-135 is designed to provide all F-35 aircraft variants with fifth-generation propulsion capabilities. It has low-observable signature and a 40,000-lb thrust capacity, and features thermal management technology and integrated engine control system.
