Project: Ariane 5 series production

Company: MT Aerospace AG

Ariane 5 completed five successful launches in 2011, with MT Aerospace, which supplies around 10 percent of the hardware, making a crucial contribution to this. Among other things, six flight sets were produced and supplied last year. For 2012, the same production rate is planned, while for the LH2 upper stage tank seven shipsets per year shall be produced. In this way,  full capacity utilization is guaranteed at the Augsburg plant.

Partners:
EADS (customer for structures, tanks and tank components),
Europropulsion (customer for the booster cases)
Cryospace (customer for LH2 tank)
