EUROJET at ADEX, Seoul 2015
SEOUL, REPUBLIC OF KOREA, 21ST OCTOBER 2015
EUROJET showcased the EJ200 at the recent ADEX air show in Seoul, together with Partner Company, Rolls-Royce, with a full-size cutaway production engine on display.
EUROJET was in Republic of Korea to promote the EJ200 as the best solution for the topical KFX indigenous aircraft project. The KFX is largely considered the Republic of Korea’s largest weapon project to-date and the decision for the engine provider for the KFX platform is expected in early 2016. The EJ200 engine’s state-of-the-art technology combined with a cost-effective operational and maintenance philosophy makes it a highly competitive option in the KFX competition.
In a press conference held the week before the air show, Clemens Linden, CEO of EUROJET stated: “I am proud to confirm my personal commitment and that of the EUROJET community to the Republic of Korea’s KFX programme. We fully support Korea’s vision for indigenisation and have designed both a substantial localisation concept and an extensive Transfer of Technology package coupled with the opportunity to modify and adapt the existing EJ200 engine to meet the air force’s particular requirements.”
