In Niort (France), Safran Electrical & Power has set up a factory entirely dedicated to the manufacture of electrical generation and distribution systems for aerospace manufacturers. The plant has an extensive expertise in electrical systems integration, smart contactors and power distribution panels for modern airliners (A350, 787...). A complex task when you know a primary distribution panel on an A350 can have up to 60,000 different parts. Niort is also one of the few test-bed sites in Europe capable of assessing the effectiveness of electrical systems' protective gears in real conditions (vibrations, lightning, temperature and electromagnetic compatibility).
