Rolls-Royce Delivers Trent 1000 Engines For 787-9 First Flight

Company Says New Engines Are One Percent More Fuel Efficient Than Current Model

Rolls-Royce has delivered Trent 1000 engines to power the first test flight of the latest member of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family, the 787-9. The engines will provide 74,000lb thrust for the 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, which will fly for the first time later this year. Trent 1000s will also power the aircraft’s entry into service with Air New Zealand in 2014.

"This is another important milestone for the Trent 1000 as we work with Boeing to bring the 787-9 into service,” said John Griffiths, Rolls-Royce, Program Director - Trent 1000. “We look forward to demonstrating the performance of the Trent 1000 on this latest version of the Dreamliner."
 
The engines that will power the 787-9 are one per cent more fuel efficient than Trent 1000s currently in service.
 
A further upgrade, the Trent 1000-TEN, will enter service in 2016 and will be up to three per cent more fuel efficient than Trent 1000s currently in service. The Trent 1000-TEN will be able to power all variants of the 787, including the 787-10. It will deliver the best average range fuel efficiency on the aircraft.
 
The Trent 1000 powered the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s entry into service with All Nippon Airways (ANA) in October 2011 and has now completed more than 50,000 flying hours with an engine dispatch reliability of better than 99.9% - the best ever reliability figures for a widebody engine on entering airline service.
