Power management company Eaton has been awarded a contract by Embraer S.A. to
supply hydraulic components for the newly launched E-Jets E2 commercial
aircraft family. Embraer’s second generation of E-Jets comprises three new
airplanes: the E190-E2, the E195-E2 and the E175-E2. Eaton will provide highly
reliable pumps and power transfer units for all three aircraft. The contract
amount is estimated at $400 million for the life of the program.

Embraer’s new E-Jets will feature aerodynamically advanced wings, improved
systems and avionics, increased aircraft availability and double-digit
reductions in fuel consumption, emissions, noise and maintenance costs. The
