Nov. 17, 2010, Mississauga, Ont. - Honeywell announced Nov. 15 Boeing has selected the 36-150 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) for the CH-147 helicopters that will be delivered to Canada.
“Honeywell engines and auxiliary power units are powering helicopters around the world, but the Canadian Forces program marks the first selection of Honeywell’s APU for a Chinook helicopter,” said Vicki Panhuise, vice president, U.S. Defense Customers, Honeywell Aerospace. “The Honeywell 36-150 provides 75% more electrical power allowing the Canadian Forces an expanded mission envelope. It also provides higher reliability and lower operating costs for a proven battlefield workhorse.”
