Woodward to Build More PurePower Fuel Nozzles for New Airliners and Aftermarket

FORT COLLINS, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- Woodward, Inc. (NASDAQ: WWD) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Pratt & Whitney to expand its production of advanced fuel nozzles for the PurePower PW1000G family of Geared Turbofan™ engines. Under the agreement, Woodward will supply fuel nozzles both for installation in new PurePower engines and for use in the aftermarket service of the engines.

PurePower PW1000G engines will equip a variety of aircraft including the Airbus A320neo, Bombardier CSeries and Embraer's EJets E2 family. The first production fuel nozzles will be delivered later this year.

"Woodward is happy to solidify a long-term relationship as part of the PurePower engine family with our advanced fuel nozzles," says Sagar Patel, president of Woodward's Aircraft Turbine Systems business. "The new agreement allows Woodward to deliver reliable, effective components to Pratt & Whitney for the life of the PurePower program."

The companies signed a fuel nozzle contract in 2008 for the development and initial production run of new PurePower engines until 2021. Woodward previously has been awarded contracts to provide other components for PurePower engines via other Pratt & Whitney contractors. Including aftermarket service, the PurePower engine program currently is expected to extend into the 2040s. Approximately 220 people are employed at Woodward's Zeeland, Mich., facility, where the PurePower engine's fuel nozzles will be manufactured.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
