Rolls-Royce welcomes the decision by lessor Avolon to select 15 Airbus A330-900neo aircraft, powered by the newly-launched Trent 7000 engine.
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President - Civil Large Engines said: "We welcome Avolon's decision to select aircraft powered by our Trent 7000 engines. With the Trent 7000, we are delivering significant performance benefits compared to the current version of the highly successful Trent 700 that powers the A330."
The Trent 7000 brings together:
- Experience from the Trent 700 - the engine of choice for the current A330
- Architecture from the Trent 1000-TEN - the latest version of the Trent 1000 engine
- Latest technology from the Trent XWB - the world's most efficient large civil engine
The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver significant performance BENEFITS compared to the current version of the Trent 700. It will improve specific fuel consumption by ten per cent; have twice the bypass ratio; and will halve perceived noise.
The Trent engine FAMILY has accumulated more than 75 million flight hours over the last 19 years. Each member of the Trent engine family has been either the market leader, aircraft launch engine, or both.
