Safran wins the electrical wiring contract for Airbus Helicopters H160

Safran Electrical & Power has been selected by Airbus Helicopters to supply the electrical wiring for the H160, a new generation mid-range helicopter. With this new contract, Safran Electrical & Power is expanding its involvement in this program as it was already in charge of the cockpit avionics bay and the rear avionics bay of the aircraft.

"We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Airbus Helicopters on the H160, for which we were already supplying the cockpit avionics and the rear avionics bays. This is a testament to our client's confidence and the extra value we have brought to the program. We currently produce electrical systems and wiring for most Airbus Helicopters programs: Super Puma, Puma, Dauphin, NH90, H145 and H160," said Julien Willer, Key Account Manager Interconnection Systems Eurasia, Safran Electrical & Power.

"Safran was selected following a rigorous call for tenders. Here at Airbus Helicopters, our high standards in terms of quality, safety and competitiveness are decisive criteria. By winning this call for tenders for the electrical wiring on the H160, Safran has demonstrated its commitment to continuing our partnership, which began many years ago, on other Airbus Helicopter programs. These shared values mean that we are especially delighted with this latest partnership," said Thierry Vinson, Head of Commodity Lead Buyer Electrical Systems and Components, Procurement, Airbus Helicopters.
