General Electric has won a $114.8 million contract from US Navy to install new engines on F/A-18 and EA-18G aircraft.
Under the contract, General Electric will supply 28 Lot 20 and 21 full-rate production F414-GE-400 engines. The products are capable of generating roughly 22,000 pounds of thrust, the company announced Wednesday.
The contemporary models feature 18 percent more thrust and twice the horsepower of their predecessors.
The work will be performed in various locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Kentucky, and is expected to be complete by February 2019.
