This is the most modern Rolls-Royce assembly and test facility for large commercial Trent aero engines and also the Group’s first in Asia.
The state-of-the-art facility has been specifically designed to allow simultaneous assembly and testing of Rolls-Royce Trent aero engines under one roof. Initially, Trent 900 engines for the Airbus A380 and Trent 1000 engines for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner will be built here.
A sister site to the existing Rolls-Royce production and test facility in Derby, UK, the Seletar Assembly & Test Unit creates additional capacity that will enable Rolls-Royce to meet global customer demand and increase proximity to our growing customer base in the region.
An equal production standard between our UK and Singapore facilities is an important part of Civil Aviation Authority approval. Both sites utilise the same uniform processes to produce large commercial Trent aero engines to the same high standards of excellence demanded by our customers.
The first production engine to be assembled at the facility, a Trent 900, was delivered to Airbus in November 2012. Since then over 50 Trent 900 aero engines have been delivered.
By mid-2014, the facility will be ready to begin production of Trent 1000 area engines and is on course to ramp up to full capacity by 2016.
