Meggitt will supply fuel bladders for the C-130 Super Hercules aircraft program under a $16.5 million contract from Lockheed Martin announced on 21 October.

The company will provide long-life, lightweight fuel bladders. Designed using polyurethane technology, the bladders are highly flexible, durable and maintenance-free.

Deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2020.

Chris Allen, president of Meggitt’s Airframe Systems division, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with Lockheed Martin on this crucial program. The Super Hercules is one of the hardest working aircraft in the world, refueling, transporting, firefighting and performing reconnaissance. We are proud that Meggitt innovation, through our durable fuel bladders, will support these daily activities.’
