New engines offer ever-lower fuel burn and emissions : Aviation: Benefits Beyond Borders
We have a fundamental role in meeting the environmental and societal opportunities and challenges that the world faces. Optimised specifically to power the Boeing Dreamliner family of aircraft, it draws on the technology and experience of four previous generations of Trent engines. Capitalising on the architecture and technologies of previous generations of Trent engine, the Trent has been designed and optimised to power the Boeing Dreamliner family of aircraft.
A more stable operating cycle. The Trent engine has a number of features to safeguard against core icing and a heated ESS Engine Section Stator system which delivers advanced ice protection.
Singapore Airlines take delivery of the first Boeing Dreamliner, powered by Trent engines. The aircraft is powered by the latest version of the Trent , the Trent TEN Thrust, Efficiency and New technology , which incorporates technologies from the Trent XWB and Advance engine programmes and delivers a higher thrust and increased efficiency.
The engine contributes to the Dreamliner achieving 20 per cent greater efficiency than the aircraft it replaces, as well as halving the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft.
The Trent has powered both the first test flight and entry into service of every version of the aircraft — the , and The Trent TEN engine, which entered into service today, will power Boeing Dreamliner aircraft operated by Air New Zealand, Norwegian and Scoot, and is designed to power all variants of the Dreamliner family, including the new The engine incorporates new technologies to deliver increased thrust and improved efficiency for the aircraft.
Earlier this year the Trent engine celebrated a hat trick of firsts when it powered the first flight of the Boeing Dreamliner, having powered the first flights of the and the More recently the Trent TEN powered an 18 hour test flight during which a Boeing Dreamliner test flight drew a giant outline of the plane across the United States. Today the took to the skies for the first time and under each wing was the perfect partner — a powerful yet efficient Trent TEN engine - completing a hat-trick of first flights for the Trent Somewhat of a regular in the spotlight, the Trent TEN already captured headlines back in December last year when it flew for the first time on the after completing flight testing on our flying test bed sporting a perfect TEN decal.
This latest variant of the Trent is the perfect partner for the Boeing offering increased thrust, improved efficiency, and new technology that has already been proven on the Trent XWB, through our demonstrator programmes and development testing of the engine.
To be trusted as the first engine to fly on all three variants of the Boeing Dreamliner is a source of immense pride for all of us at Rolls-Royce. Today, the world caught a first glimpse of the as ZC rolled out of a hanger at Charleston International Airport. Under each wing - as is now something of a tradition - was a Rolls-Royce Trent engine, meaning that the Trent has now been first to power all three variants of the Boeing Dreamliner.
This time it was the Trent TEN's turn to take centre stage. The Trent TEN already captured the headlines back in December last year when it demonstrated its increased power and performance during fight testing on a Boeing This latest variant of the Trent is the perfect partner for the Boeing offering increased thrust, improved efficiency, and new technology that has already been proven on the Trent XWB. The milestones continue to tumble, as earlier today the Trent TEN flew for the first time on the Boeing Onboard ZA, Pilot Jennifer Henderson and her team put the latest variant of the Trent through its paces, soaring to heights of 43,ft and reaching speeds approaching Mach 0.
The first flight gives an indication of the superior performance of the Trent TEN on the Boeing , with tests including in-flight restart performance and engine handling. This flight marks the start of an extensive programme of flight testing and an important milestone towards delivering a step-change in performance and economics to Trent operators around the world. The Trent TEN Thrust, Efficiency and New technology will power all three versions of the Boeing and incorporates a new compressor system - already proven on the Trent XWB — with a new turbine design to provide thrust up to 78k lbf.
Rolls-Royce has successfully completed the first flight of its new Trent TEN thrust, efficiency and new technology engine which will power the Boeing Dreamliner family of aircraft.
The Trent is already the most reliable engine on the Boeing and was the first to power both the -8 and -9 versions into service. Over one and a half million flying hours have been successfully achieved and now the TEN version is set to deliver new levels of fuel efficiency and thrust for customers. The engine has successfully completed testing that simulates sub-zero flight conditions such as hold, descent and freezing fog whilst spraying fine water droplets to simulate flying through cloud or taxiing in fog.
Ice builds on the engine and is then shed by accelerating to high power. During the tests the engine experienced temperatures down to degrees C. The decision marks a real vote of confidence in the Trent , Ethiopian having previously selected engines from another provider to power 13 Boeing Dreamliner aircraft.
We have confidence that it will deliver outstanding lifetime fuel burn, performance and reliability. We have real momentum in the marketplace - in the last six years the Trent has been selected in more than 60 per cent of engine competitions. Air China will be adding 15 new Boeing Dreamliner aircraft powered by Trent engines to its fleet, which already has over 50 Rolls-Royce engines in operation. John Rishton, CEO, said: The Trent offers operators outstanding lifetime fuel burn performance and reliability on the Boeing Dreamliner.
ANA has previously selected the engine three times, to power a total of 80 Dreamliners. Since then the engine has completed more than , in-service flying hours with an engine dispatch reliability of It has served us very well through our entry into service and we continue to receive excellent customer support throughout from Rolls-Royce. It continues to demonstrate its confidence in the outstanding performance, reliability and economics of the Trent The Rolls-Royce Trent engine has powered the latest phase of Boeing ecoDemonstrator aircraft flights, on a Dreamliner.
The aircraft will, over several weeks, assess more than 25 technologies designed to improve aircraft fuel efficiency and reduce noise. We are pleased to be supporting Boeing's environmental research and look forward to continuing to work together on this project. The multi-year Boeing ecoDemonstrator Programme is focused on accelerating the testing, refinement and completion of new technologies, methods and materials to improve aviation's environmental performance and sustainability.
The programme tests technologies on several aircraft that serve as flying test beds. The Trent also powered the first Boeing Dreamliner test flights in and its entry into service in as well as the Dreamliner entry into service earlier this year.
The carrier will be the variant's first operator, says Boeing. The can carry up to 40 more passengers an additional nautical miles km over the The debut route for the will be Auckland-Perth later this year. Powered by our recently certified Trent pack C engines, the new Dreamliner is slightly bigger than the and is capable of carrying up to passengers.
Demonstrator programmes have already validated improvements to the high pressure turbine, compressors, internal air systems and a composite fan case dressing system. The Trent has now completed over , in-service flying hours with an engine dispatch reliability of better than It has already powered the first entry into service with ANA in and will power the first into service later this year.
This means that the Pack C engine for the -9 is now approved to the minute level already achieved by our Pack A and Pack B engines.
ETOPS certification at this level is a further reminder of just how reliable an engine the Trent is proving itself to be, as well as being a fundamental requirement for our customers. The Pack C engine sees the Trent gain an extra pounds of thrust taking it to 74, pounds and is configured to accommodate the structural refinements of the -9 airframe.
Offering choice and flexibility throughout the product lifecycle via a competitive global network. Delivering optimal value across the diverse service needs of our growing customer base. Our premium service, providing trusted risk transfer, for as long as you need it. TotalCare is much more than just an engine maintenance plan.
It is a service concept based upon predictability and reliability. TotalCare covers predictive maintenance planning, work scope creation and management plus off-wing repair and overhaul activities. TotalCare transfers both time-on-wing and shop visit cost risks back to Rolls-Royce.
There is no fixed expiry date for the service and so you are covered for as long as you operate the engine. This enables you to sell the engine for a higher price. This structure is fully aligned with the needs of engine lessors and can avoid the requirement to pay maintenance reserves. This means that if the term ends midway between shop visits, you will not have made any contribution towards the engine life used since the last shop visit.
We will provide engine thrust through a full overhaul to maximise time-on-wing, or via a partial overhaul that takes the engine to its retirement date or by an engine swap. TotalCare Flex is typically applicable to owned engines; leased aircraft can be included in which case the saving due to engine life released is passed to the lessor.
Event-based services, for customers who require neither risk transfer nor long-term services. These are short-term, event-based services that we can provide for you, without the need for a long-term services contract. Foundation Services can be used either to supplement your existing TotalCare or SelectCare cover or as an alternative to a long-term services agreement.
You may also procure other services, such as On-Wing services, training or dedicated spare engine leasing, even if you do not need an engine overhaul. This service lets you know what the cost will be, before you send an engine into the shop for an overhaul. The price quoted is valid for specific engine serial numbers and workscopes only. The quotation will be based on the current condition of the engine this is usually based on performance records rather than a physical inspection of the engine and so will only be valid for a few months, rather than the long-term cost protection provided by SelectCare.
The other principal difference between SelectCare and Fixed-Price Overhauls is that under SelectCare the overhaul workscope is generally provided by Rolls-Royce but under Fixed-Price Overhauls the workscope is usually developed by the overhaul shop. If you want an overhaul for which you know that you will only pay for the parts and labour your engine needs, then a Time and Material overhaul may be the right choice. You can specify your workscope to match your individual requirements.
It should be noted that there are likely to be other costs associated with a Time and Material overhaul, for example handling fees, transportation or outside repairs. Offering simplicity, choice and flexibility for the life of your engine assets. LessorCare is a pioneering new service designed specifically for lessor customers. LessorCare addresses the needs of lessors to have access to a simple but flexible service offering by drawing together a range of services under one comprehensive framework, while allowing customers the opportunity to adapt the level of service through the life of the engine.
We recognise that lessors need to be able to move quickly to take advantage of market opportunities. LessorCare helps them by providing a single overall framework for all their Rolls-Royce engine types. LessorCare allows both parties to establish commercial arrangements and terms of business to ensure everything is in place for the lessor to call on as and when required, be that planned, or more likely unplanned following, for example, a default situation.
Technical data and advice is available to lessors whenever they need it and a wide range of asset management services are available which help lessors to reap the maximum return from their engine investments. A key part of LessorCare is the creation of a dedicated aircraft transitions team within Rolls-Royce who use their market and engine knowledge to proactively and reactively assist with the smooth exit of aircraft from one operator and its placement and service entry with its next operator.
LessorCare also helps lessors to maximise the terminal asset value of their engine inventory when they decide to finally withdraw them from service. As experts in our field, we can help you identify your training requirements and create a training package that perfectly fits. Our practical approach to learning can be delivered at any one of our training centres around the world, or on-site at your own facility.
