Innovation …Trent 1000 Engines To Power Ten Boeing 787 Dreamliner Aircraft


Aircraft lessor, AerCap, has placed an order with tech giant, Rolls-Royce for its Trent 1000 engine to power ten of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Rolls-Royce says the deal is valued at $450m at list prices and that the aircraft will be powered by the latest version of the Trent 1000, the Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology).

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Director - Customers and Services, Civil Aerospace, says: "We are proud to have AerCap, a global leader in the lessor market, order further Trent 1000 engines as our latest variant goes into service. We continue to see customers recognise the economic benefits of our engine and its service support. "

Rolls-Royce explains that the Trent 1000 engine incorporates technologies from the Trent XWB and Advance engine programmes contributing to the Dreamliner achieving a 20 per cent greater efficiency than the aircraft it replaces, as well as having half the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft.

Also commenting, Philip Scruggs, President and Chief Commercial Officer, AerCap, enthuses: "We are pleased to provide our customers with the most modern, fuel efficient aeroplanes and engines in the world. We look forward to receiving further 787 Dreamliners powered by this latest version of Trent 1000, the Trent 1000 TEN engines."
