Honeywell selected to provide RE220 APU for Superjet 100

Honeywell Specialty Materials : 17 July, 2006  (Company News)
Honeywell announced today that it has won a contract to supply its RE220RJ auxiliary power unit to Sukhoi Civil Aircraft for a new family of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft (formerly RRJ), designed to seat 75 to 95 passengers.
The new family of aircraft is scheduled to enter service in 2008.

“Honeywell’s APU was selected because it provides the value and proven reliability required by Sukhoi to successfully compete in the regional jet arena,” said Tim Mahoney, President, Air Transport and Regional, Honeywell Aerospace. “The RE220[RJ] for the Superjet 100 is a derivative of Honeywell’s RE220 APU family that has accumulated more than 2,000,000 hours of operation on four aircraft applications worldwide.”

The RE220[RJ] was one of the first western regional APUs to receive a type certificate by the Interstate Aviation Committee Avian Register, the Russian equivalent of the FAA.

The APU is designed to supply compressed air to drive the aircraft’s air conditioning systems and to start the main engines. It also produces electricity for aircraft requirements while on the ground or during flight for normal or, if needed, emergency requirements.

The RE220[RJ] APU will start up to 37,000 feet and operate to 41,000 feet. It will deliver up to 110 lbm/min with a simultaneous electrical load of 40 kVA for main engine starting and Environmental Control System operation. It will deliver 40 kVA to support electrical needs up to 41,000 feet, and bleed air for MES or ECS up to 25,000 feet. The RE220[RJ] APU currently exceeds 10,000 MTBF in regional airline service.

Based in Morris Township, N.J., Honeywell’s shares are traded on the New York, London, Chicago and Pacific Stock Exchanges.
