0 175

SINGAPORE—Rolls-Royce has unveiled new details of a broad upgrade effort for its Trent 1000, 7000 and XWB engine family aimed at significantly improving durability and bolstering its longer term market position in the widebody sector on the Airbus A330neo, A350 and Boeing 787 programs.

The move follows comments made in November by Rolls-Royce CEO Tufan Erginbilgic that the company planned to plow more than £1 billion ($1.25 billion) into the product line which exclusively powers the A330neo and A350, and in the case of the Trent 1000, competes with GE Aerospace’s GEnx-1B on the 787.
