At the NBAA Convention, Microturbo announced that the e-APU60, a new-concept auxiliary power unit specifically designed to meet the demands of new-generation more-electric aircraft, was delivered this summer to its first client, AgustaWestland, for installation on their new-generation AW149 and AW189 helicopters.

The first e-APU60, configured for flight testing, was installed according to schedule. Delivering up to 60 kWe of electrical power, the e-APU60 is capable of covering all the aircraft’s electrical needs throughout the flight envelope.

The main benefits of the e-APU60, which are an excellent power-to-weight ratio and its exceptional compactness, are proving themselves through the testing and certification programmes, which have progressed flawlessly to date. Furthermore, the simplified architecture and the high pressure cycle, both of which are based on the very latest technologies developed by the Safran Group, are setting some new standards in terms of reliability and cost of ownership.

“We are particularly proud to have reached this essential milestone in our programme” said Jean-Baptiste Jarin, Microturbo’s Commercial and Customer Support Vice President.

As expected, certification of the e-APU60 is progressing in accordance with the statutory requirements. EASA certification is scheduled for the end of 2012 and FAA certification for early 2013.

Microturbo (microturbo.com), a company of the Safran group (safran-group.com), is specialised in the design, development and manufacture of high technologies gas turbines. Based in Toulouse, France, Microturbo is a world leader in the field of propulsion systems and power systems having delivered over 10,000 units.
