Production and investments

In just a few short years, Volvo Aero’s North American subsidiary, VACT, outside Hartford in Connecticut in the US, has established itself as one of the market’s leading players in the field of fan cases for large aircraft engines. The most recent example is a fan case for the GP7000 engine in the Airbus A380. The company already manufactures fan cases for the Trent 900 for the same aircraft. Similarly, VACT has signed a contract for manufacturing both of the engine options offered with the new Boeing 787: the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000, and GEnx 1B. Volvo Aero has also signed a contract concerning the manufacture of GEnx 2B fan cases for the new Boeing 747-8. Other assignments include the GE90 for the Boeing 777 and V2500 for the Airbus A320.
