The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97, is the world’s most reliable large civil aero engine, as well as the news takes the lead towards the engine accepting service later this year.
Certification of your 97,000lb thrust engine, which could exclusively power the Airbus A350-1000, develops the prosperity of the 84,000lb thrust version of the Trent XWB that has delivered exceptional quantities of performance as it entered passenger service in 2015, powering the Airbus A350-900.
Certification was granted by EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and marks another successful milestone to your Trent XWB, the easiest selling wide body jet engine ever, with 1,600 engines ordered by more than 40 customers worldwide.
It comes one week following Trent 1000 TEN engine, that could power all variants in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, received an equivalent volume of certification from EASA, following extensive testing.
The Trent XWB-97’s increased a higher level thrust when compared with the Trent XWB-84 is achieved by using a mixture off new high-temperature turbine technology, a greater engine core and advanced fan aerodynamics.
Andrew Gwynne, Rolls-Royce, Chief Engineer C Trent XWB, said: “We are quite likes to show off the prosperity of the Trent XWB programme and appearance to the most up-to-date variant of your engine accepting service later this year. Now we have worked closely when using the teams at Airbus and EASA to do this certification and also thank them because of their support.”
