The Europrop International TP400-D6 is a collaborative engine between Rolls-Royce, MTU, Snecma and ITP.
The TP400-D6 will be developed and produced by EPI Europrop International, an international cooperation comprising Rolls-Royce, Snecma, MTU and ITP.
The engine has been designed to fulfil the ESR (European Staff Requirements) for the A400M military transport, Europe's response to the increased requirements for transport capacity within Europe and for peacekeeping missions abroad.
Major development activities started in May 2003 after the engine contract was signed by Airbus Military S.L. and EPI Europrop International Gmbh. This contract covers the development and production of more than 750 engines to be delivered from 2012 onwards for the A400M fleets of Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Turkey, Belgium and Luxembourg and the production of additional engines for potential export customers.
Rolls-Royce's areas of responsibility include the overall engine performance, Air & Oil systems, the Intermediate casing, the 6-stage High Pressure Compressor and the Low Pressure shaft.
