The agreement was signed by GTA's Chairman and CEO, Dato Nonee Ashirin Bt Dato Mohd Radzi and Ricardo Navarro, Support Service Manager of EPI. The signing ceremony was witnessed by YB Dato Seri Hishammuddin Bin Tun Hussein, Defence Minister of Malaysia and Dato Sri Abdul Rahim Bin Mohamad Radzi, Secretary General, Ministry of Defence.

The TP400 is a triple-spool turbodrop developing 11,000 shaft horsepower, making it one of the most powerful engine of this type in the world. It was purpose-designed for the A400M airlifter, and features proven technologies developed by the four EPI partners on other commercial and military engines. With its giant 8-bladed propeller 5 meters in diameter, the TP400 is an impressive sight - and a real technical and industrial challenge.
