Part of a 3 million euro investment round
Turbotech (turbotech-aero.com) offers a range of turbine engines for light aircraft (turboprops and turbo-electric generators), based on innovative regenerative cycle• turbines. Featuring its patented heat exchanger technology, Turbotech's products combine reliability, exceptional performance, low fuel consumption, low acoustic signature and minimal operating costs.

Turbotech has facilities in Brittany and the greater Paris area. It was founded by four partners, all former employees of Safran, and is directed by Damien Fauvet. Another company, Le Guellec Tubes & Profilés, is also a shareholder and provides industrial support.

Safran Corporate Ventures took part in a round of funding worth 3 million euros, alongside GO CAPITAL Amorçage II, a technology seed fund for western France. Along with this investment, Nicolas Franck of Safran Corporate Ventures and Jérôme Guéret of GO CAPITAL will be joining the company's Strategy Committee.

This round of funding will enable Turbotech to finalize the development of its products and introduce them on the market starting in 2019. Turbotech will be the first company to sell a high-performance hybrid propulsion system in the general aviation, heavy drone and on-demand air mobility markets. The electric version will give hybrid propulsion aircraft several hours of endurance.

A technology partnership agreement
Safran and Turbotech have signed a technology partnership agreement, entailing technical support from Safran, and the use of Turbotech's technology in some of Safran's future products. The contract covers an initial period of five years.

"This agreement falls within the scope of Safran's proactive road map for hybrid propulsion solutions," said Stéphane Cueille, Safran Vice President for R&T and Innovation. "Safran is already at the cutting edge of this field, and is considering the use of Turbotech's heat exchanger in some of its products, so we can offer a level of performance that sets us apart. The agreement signed today will enable the two companies to pool our skills and effectively transform the basic technological building blocks developed by Turbotech into products that will be attractive in both Safran's and Turbotech's markets."

• The regenerative cycle involves using a heat exchanger to recover the energy contained in a turbine's exhaust gases, thus significantly reducing its fuel consumption.
