Triumph Group’s Actuation Products & Services operating company has been selected to supply hydraulic power pack units on Mammoth Freighters’ Boeing 777 freighter conversion programmes.

The hydraulic power pack units were designed, qualified, and manufactured at the North Carolina-based Actuation facility and are expected to offer a cost-effective solution for Mammoth’s cargo door power generation needs.

“Triumph is well positioned to support Mammoth Freighters’ mission of developing a line of energy-efficient and productive long range freight conversion aircrafts,” said Scott Ledbetter, president of Triumph Actuation Products & Services. 

“The demand for passenger-to-freighter modifications is at record levels, and Triumph’s experience in producing the hydraulic power packs used in this type of conversion was a key factor in Mammoth selecting us as their hydraulic partner.”

Actuation Products & Services provides design, manufacturing and MRO services for products and systems including hydraulic pumps and motors, actuators, fuses, accumulators, valves and manifolds, and carrier launched aircraft holdback bars.

The company maintains a unique capability for systems engineering and integration, as well as hydromechanical and electronics in-house development. It also serves as the integration focal for Triumph, specialising in motion, control, and power systems for commercial, military and rotorcraft aircraft.

Mammoth Freighters is currently undertaking Boeing 777-200LR and 777-300ER passenger-to-freighter conversion programmes.

In November 2021, it was announced that Cargojet Airways would be the launch customer for Mammoth Freighters’ B777-200LR freighter conversion programme.
