Vincorion, the main mechatronic business unit of Jenoptik, has been contracted by Raytheon to supply spare parts, worth ten million euros, for the PATRIOT Air Defence System. Particularly, this is for the diesel engines of the generating sets with deliveries set to take place from the 3rd quarter of 2020 to the 1st quarter of 2021. The energy supply for the PATRIOT, which has come from Vincorion since the 1980s, depends on power generating sets which are assigned to the individual components, with the radar and manned Engagement Control Station each supplied by an Electric Power Plant (EPP) generating 150 kW power.
