Lionel Daneau / Techspace Aero / Safran
Safran Aero Boosters and its subsidiary Safran Oil Systems are the leading players in this field, holding exclusive oil tank contracts with major global engine manufacturers : Safran Aircraft Engines, General Electric, Pratt&Whitney et Rolls-Royce.
With approximately twenty references to its credit, Safran Aero Boosters has sound experience in tank manufacture for different engines across the thrust range. The latest contracts include oil tanks for CFMI LEAP, GE Passport, RR Trent XWB and PW1000G engines and the Engine Alliance GP7200.
Its technique for machine-welding thin sheet stainless steel is the optimal solution for mass and fire resistance constraints and makes it possible to produce tanks which are perfectly tailored to the requirements of different aircraft engine manufacturers.
Safran Aero Boosters provides design, engine integration, development, manufacturing, testing and in-service support for its tanks, and also supplies fixing and dynamic shock absorption systems.
Partner and exclusive supplier
Safran Aero Boosters, which is already very well established on the market as the exclusive supplier of tanks for CFM56 motors, consolidated its position with the acquisition in 2010 of Safran Oil Systems, a manufacturer of thin sheet steel oil tanks, based in Florida (USA).
As a technological partner, the company offers solutions from the pre-project phase forward in product architecture and technical specifications using modelling tools.
