Rolls-Royce delivers 100th Trent XWB engine From Dahlewitz, Germany

Rolls-Royce is celebrating the delivery of the 100th Trent XWB engine assembled at the production line in Dahlewitz, Germany. The engine will be delivered to Airbus in Toulouse to power Lufthansa’s latest A350-900 aircraft.

The Lufthansa Group, one of Rolls-Royce’s most important airline customers, has operated Trent engines since 2003 and has more than 60 Rolls-Royce powered widebody aircraft in service.

Rolls-Royce has continued to ramp up production, assembling Trent XWB engines in both Derby, UK and Dahlewitz, Germany. Together, both production lines deliver the equivalent of one Trent XWB engine each working day of the week.

Warren East, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce, attended the ceremony and said: “With over 450 engines already delivered and three times that number on firm order the Trent XWB is a key part of our Civil Aerospace product portfolio. We are proud of our teams in Germany and the UK and their successful cooperation, delivering outstanding engines every day and supporting the Airbus A350 assembly line and airline customers worldwide.”
