- Rolls Royce Aerospace plans for the future
Rolls-Royce Aerospace manufactures commercial and military gas turbine engines for military, civil, and corporate aircraft customers worldwide. Its core gas turbine technology has become one of the broadest product ranges of aero-engines in the world. Over 50,000 engines are in service between 500 airlines, over 2,400 corporate and utility operators and more than 100 armed forces use Rolls-Royce engines. In 2019, Rolls-Royce delivered 510 Trent power plants, and invested $2 billion for a predicted market of 8,500 aircrafts in the next 10 years. In 2006, Rolls-Royce agreed to supply the Trent engines for the Airbus A350 jetliner, which has been supplied to over 40 customers. This engine is an upgrade from the Trent 1000 which was originally used for the A350.
Rolls-Royce has started working on the UltraFan aero engine which is designed to enhance fuel efficiency by 25% and will have its first test run using 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel. Rolls-Royce civil aerospace president Chris Cholerton said: “This is an exciting moment for all of us at Rolls-Royce. Our first engine demonstrator, UF001, is now coming together and I’m really looking forward to seeing it built and ready for testing.” This UltraFan is part of Rolls-Royce “IntelligentEngine ” vision which has support from the UK and German governments.
