New Delhi. 07September, 2016. Boeing awarded a contract to Tata Advanced Materials Limited (TAML), to provide composite interior closeout panels for the P-8 aircraft that cover the interior wall structure of the aircraft.
“This contract is another example of Indian companies becoming part of the global supply chain and manufacturing aerospace parts for the world’s most advanced products,” said Sudhi Ranjan Mukherjee, Chief Executive Officer, TAML. He further added, “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Boeing and are confident that the two organisations will continue to make a significant contribution to aerospace manufacturing in India.”
TAML is currently under contract to manufacture the P-8 tail cone and auxiliary power unit door fairing out of India. Additionally, TAML works for Dynamatic Technologies Limited in support of the CH-47F Chinook, a medium-to-heavy lift helicopter, and for P-8 cabinets.
The P-8 is designed for long-range anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, as well as armed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. A derivative of Boeing’s Next-Generation 737-800, it is capable of broad-area maritime operations.
