Rolls-Royce Announces Partners For Trent 7000 Engine

Exclusive Engine For The Airbus A330neo Airplane

Rolls-Royce has welcomed Industrial de Turbo Propulsores, S.A. (ITP) of Spain, Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd (KHI) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Aero Engines, Ltd (MHIAEL) as risk and revenue sharing partners on the Trent 7000, the exclusive engine for the Airbus A330neo aircraft.

ITP is a joint venture between Rolls-Royce (46.9%) and a subsidiary of Sener (53.1%). ITP will be responsible for the design, assembly and the majority of manufacturing of the low pressure turbine (LPT) module. The company has participated on all seven Trent engine programs as a risk and revenue sharing partner since 1992.

KHI, which has a relationship with Rolls-Royce dating back to 1962, will supply the intermediate pressure compressor (IPC) module from its Seishin facility. Its risk and revenue sharing relationship with Rolls-Royce dates back to 1988 and the RB211 engine, and most recently has seen KHI supply the IPC module for both the Trent 1000 and Trent XWB engines.

MHIAEL will supply components for combustion modules and all stage LPT blades from its facility in Nagoya. Last year marked ten years of risk and revenue sharing partnership during which MHI (latterly through MHIAEL) has supplied combustion and turbine components for both the Trent 1000 and Trent XWB programmes.

Rolls-Royce has already been working closely with all three partners to support the Trent 7000 program. Rolls-Royce is ready to build the first Trent 7000 and the engine will go on test later this year.
