Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, secured $1.7 billion in new orders during the Farnborough Air Show, demonstrating the Group’s leading edge technology, broad portfolio and successful after market capability.
Two new Rolls-Royce powered aircraft made their Farnborough debut, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A400M.
Extending its market leadership, the Trent 700 won orders totalling more than $1 billion for engines to power 17 Airbus A330s from Aeroflot, Russia’s national airline and Garuda Indonesia Airlines. Both of these contracts included TotalCare long term service agreements. In addition, Garuda extended an existing TotalCare agreement covering its Trent 700 engines and Sichuan Airlines ordered a 12 year TotalCare package for its Trent 700s.
Air Transat has ordered extended TotalCare® services and Trent 700EP (Enhanced Performance) engine kits, which are designed to improve efficiency and environmental performance. The new seven year extended TotalCare services contract covers five Trent 700-powered Airbus A330s, four of which were covered under previous TotalCare arrangements. The new EP kits will be incorporated into the airline’s Trent 700 engines over the next two years.
The Trent 700, the only engine specifically designed for the A330, remains the market leader for the aircraft and has secured more than 70% of new orders in the past three years. The engine delivers the best performance, lowest emissions and lowest fuel burn on the Airbus A330.
International Aero Engines, in which Rolls-Royce is a senior partner, received orders for V2500 engines from Yemenia, China Southern and Vietnam Airlines, with value to Rolls-Royce of around $470 million.
The Group’s defence aerospace business announced a contract to support the Canadian Air Force CC-130J fleet, valued at more than $70 million. Rolls-Royce is the world leader in engines for military transport aircraft and this contract will provide Lockheed Martin with logistics support for the AE 2100D3 engines for the next six years. The contract has a potential value exceeding USD $260 million over the life expectancy of the fleet. This is another example of the success of our performance based logistics MissionCare, which provide customers with more cost effective through-life support.
