Engines from 1,000 to 2,000 shp
In the 1,000 to 2,000 shp engine market range, Safran Helicopter Engines manufactures three major engine families: the Arrano (1,100 to 1,300 shp) and the Ardiden (1,400 to 2,000 shp). These engines are intended for single-engine and twin-engine helicopters between 3 and 8 tonnes.
In this market range, Safran Helicopter Engines mainly works with Airbus Helicopters and has also developed very close links with other helicopter manufacturers in India (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited), China (AVIC Helicopter) and Russia (Russian Helicopters). In the under 1,000 to 2,000 shp turboshaft engine market, the Safran Arrano 1A recently won the contract to power the Airbus Helicopters H160, the Ardiden 3G won the contract to power Russian Helicopters' Ka-62 and the Ardiden 3C / WZ16 won the contract to power AVIC Helicopter's AC352. MTR390 is intended for all Airbus Helicopters combat helicopter Tiger versions.
