Rolls-Royce has delivered its 1000th Trent XWB–84, achieving another key milestone for the engine programme.

The engine, which will power an Airbus A350-900, was built at the company’s production test facility in Derby, England.

The Trent XWB-84, which entered service in 2015, is the latest in the Trent family to reach the milestone, and has done so faster than any of its predecessors. The engine has now achieved more than eight million engine flying hours in service with more than 30 operators, flying a range of different routes, from short-range segments to ultra-long-range flights of more than 18 hours.

“Reaching this milestone is another great achievement for the Trent XWB-84, which is the most efficient aero engine in service,” said Chris Cholerton, President Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace. “It is important to our customers to build ever more efficient fleets, and new-generation engines, like the Trent XWB-84 allow them to achieve this.”

“To assemble 1000 Trent XWB-84s has required more than 25 million parts brought together and more than 6,000 assembly steps per engine,” said Sebastian Resch, Director of Operations Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce. “his achievement is the result of the skills and dedication of our operations teams, with the strong support of our partners in the programme: GKN Aerospace, ITP Aero, Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, as well as our external supply chain.”
