Safran Helicopter Engines and the Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) of Denmark have signed a seven-year contract to support engines on the 14 EH101 Merlin utility helicopters operated by the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF), it was announced on 27 July.

The EH101 Merlin is powered by the RTM 322 engine. Under this arrangement, Safran will meet RDAF availability requirements for the engines during deployed operations and in-country.

The agreement will be managed under Safran’s Global Support Package (GSP), which guarantees availability at a fixed price per engine flying hour, a close technical partnership with the OEM, and provides the customer with full budget control during the contract period.

This GSP will be managed by Safran Helicopter Engines Germany, which supports more than 280 operators flying in Germany, Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia.

Designed for use in nine to fifteen-ton helicopters, the RTM 322 engine family spans a power range between 2,100 and 2,600 shp. Its architecture includes a four-stage compressor (three axial and one centrifugal stage); a two-stage turbine equipped with single-crystal vanes and a highly robust two-stage power turbine.
