RTM 322, the best engine for the NH90 helicopter
Safran’s RTM322 is a 2,100 to 2,600 shaft horsepower engine designed for ten-to-fifteen tons helicopters. State-of-the-art technologies enable it to perform in extremely demanding environments.
Power range 2,100 to 2,600 shp
Greater power than competing engines of the same size 25%
Maximum power reached in 3 seconds
Designed for demanding environments
Low number of parts for easier maintenance
The RTM322 powers 60% of the worldwide fleet of Leonardo EH101/AW101 Merlin helicopters and 75% of NHIndustries NH90s. In 2013, Safran Helicopter Engines acquired the entire RTM322 program. The engine is now 100% Safran, with the French manufacturer responsible for both production and product support.
Supporting all military missions
In its different versions, the RTM 322 now meets the operational needs of all its military customers: tactical transportation, search and rescue (SAR) at sea and in combat zones, and maritime missions, in particular anti-submarine warfare.
