Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 Powers Airbus A330neo’s First Visit to Farnborough

Two Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines will power the first visit to Farnborough Air Show of Airbus’ latest aircraft, the A330neo.

The aircraft, which will enter service later this year, is exclusively powered by the Trent 7000, the seventh and latest member of the successful Rolls-Royce Trent engine family.

The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver a step change in performance and economics compared to the Trent 700. Featuring a 10% specific fuel consumption improvement thanks to its small, high pressure-ratio core and the latest, fully swept, wide-chord fan technology, the Trent 7000 is also 6dB quieter than the Trent 700 resulting in a more pleasant flying experience.

New component technology is employed elsewhere throughout the engine to enhance maintainability. Whether that’s the blisk combined blade and disc design in the compressors or the advanced, modulated turbine clearance control system, each technology delivers benefits to airlines.

Chris Cholerton, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said, “The team at Rolls-Royce is excited to see the A330neo arrive at Farnborough. The Trent 7000 brings together the latest technology from the Trent XWB and combines it with architecture from the Trent 1000 TEN and more than 50 million hours of flying experience from the Trent 700.”

TAP Air Portugal is the launch customer of the Airbus A330neo, and the aircraft recently concluded a global tour. TAP's Airbus A330neo will feature 298 seats in a two-class configuration with 34 seats in business and 264 seats in 2-4-2 economy class layout.
