LATECOERE : LATelec, Latécoère Group delivers A350 XWB wing harnesses to Airbus Germany


On 14 June, an official ceremony at Airbus in Bremen Germany, marked delivery of the first A350 XWB wing harnesses, and teams drew hearty congratulations for their work.


Delivery to Airbus, within the agreed deadline, of the first wing harnesses for the A350 XWB program once again spotlights the know-how of LATelec's teams. For 29 months, LATelec worked on developing the harnesses. Development teams were split among three sites: Toulouse in France, Filton in England and Bremen in Germany ; Assembly and testing were carried out at LATelec's factory in Liposthey, in the Bordeaux region.

Each A350 XWB wing assembly includes 40 electrical harnesses. "The harnesses consist of more than 3,000 electrical connexions, with 21 km of wiring", explains Benoit Rouanet, LATelec GmbH Manager.

In March, LATelec delivered to Airbus the first onboard avionic racks as well as cockpit control panels (CCP) for the first A350 XWB.

François Bertrand, CEO of Latécoère group, declares that he is "proud and happy to deliver today these first electrical wing harnesses for the A350 XWB. They symbolise LATelec's know-how and its commitment to the A350 XWB program. This complex development was led by our teams, working closely with Airbus' technical teams in three countries".
