Rolls-Royce has won an order from aircraft lessor AerCap for Trent 1000 engines to power 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The deal is valued at $450 million at list prices. In addition, AerCap has options for a further five Trent 1000-powered 787s.
The aircraft will be powered by the latest version of the Trent 1000, the Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency, and New Technology). This engine incorporates technologies from the Trent XWB and Advance engine programs contributing to the Dreamliner achieving a 20% greater efficiency than the aircraft it replaces, as well as having half the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft.
The Trent 1000 TEN, which will power all variants of the Boeing 787, entered service in November 2017.
The Trent 1000 has powered the first flight of every version of the Dreamliner – the 787-8, 787-9, and 787-10.
As of Sept. 30, 2017, Dublin-based AerCap owned, managed, or had on order 1,506 aircraft and serves approximately 200 customers in approximately 80 countries
