FULL ARTICLE

Cologne - The Rolls-Royce Trent 7000, which powers the Airbus A330neo, received approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on Friday, July 20.

The Trent 7000 is the fourth Rolls-Royce engine to receive formal certification in just twelve months, following in the footsteps of Trent 1000 TEN, Trent XWB-97 and Pearl 15. The certificate was presented to Rolls-Royce by Trevor Woods, Certification Director at EASA, at the Farnborough International Airshow.

The Trent 7000 is the newest member of the Rolls-Royce Trent engine family. It is the engine selected for the A330neo by Airbus, which will enter service this year at TAP Portugal.

The Trent 7000 combines the architecture of the Trent 1000 TEN and the technology of the Trent XWB. Thanks to its doubled by-pass ratio, Trent 7000 aims to reduce fuel consumption by 10% compared to the Trent 700 used in the previous models of the A330 family.
