Rolls-Royce will take a share of around $110 million from an order for V2500 engines from Singapore-based BOC Aviation. The lessor, previously known as SALE (Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise), has selected the IAE powerplant to power 10 firm and 10 option Airbus A320-family aircraft.
BOC has already taken delivery of 46 narrowbody aircraft powered by the V2500.
The V2500 is produced by the International Aero Engines consortium (IAE) in which Rolls-Royce is a senior shareholder. In addition to Rolls-Royce, IAE’s partners are Pratt & Whitney of the United States, the Japanese Aero Engines Corporation and MTU Aero Engines of Germany.
With a range of thrust from 22,000lb-33,000lb, the V2500-A5 is available to power the Airbus A319, A320 and A321 as well as the A319 Corporate Jet. More than 1,300 V2500-powered aircraft have been delivered to over 120 customers to date and there are more than 5,000 engines delivered or on order.
