Turbomeca will showcase its Ardiden 3C and Arrius 2 turboshaft engines at Zhuhai Airshow 2014, from 11th to 16th November 2014, the company said in a statement Monday.

Developed in 50-50 partnership with Avic Engine, Ardiden 3C was ground tested for the first time in Bordes (France) in November 2013. Named WZ16 in China, the 1,700 shaft horsepower class Ardiden 3C belongs to the Ardiden 3 engine family, dedicated to the 6 to 8 ton helicopter segment. Ardiden 3C/WZ16 has been selected to power Avicopter AC352, jointly developed with Airbus Helicopters.

The Ardiden 3C/WZ16 program is the result of a strong and long lasting cooperation between Turbomeca and Avic. Through this partnership, operators and aircraft manufacturers will benefit from the know-how and experience of two key players in the field of aircraft propulsion.

Arrius 2 is one of Turbomeca’s best-selling engine families with over 3000 units delivered worldwide, logging around 6.6 Million flight hours. This 450 to 750 shaft horsepower engine family exhibits a robust design, with two main modules, and a new generation dual-channel FADEC system (Full Authority Digital Engine Control). Arrius 2 is one of the best engines in its class for single and twin engine helicopters. Recently, it has been selected by Bell Helicopter to power the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X.

In September 2013, Turbomeca also strengthened its proximity support in China, by opening a new technical support center in Tianjin, dedicated to the Arrius, Arriel and Makila engines operated in the area.
