Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine update. The first set of Trent XWB-84 engines are now approaching their first schedule maintenance after five years of service on the Airbus A350 and after having traveled an average of 14 million kilometres / 8.7 million miles without any planned maintenance and record low levels of in-flight disruption.
Currently, there are over 100 Trent XWB-84s engines that have been in service for four to five years.
Airbus considers the Trent XWB-84 to he the world’s most efficient in-service large civil aero engines.
Chris Cholerton, President – Civil Aerospace, said: “The Trent XWB-84 has experienced the smoothest entry into service of any wide-body engine we have developed. It is the most efficient in- service large civil aero-engine in the world, with unequaled on-wing reliability. Engines now coming in for overhaul have traveled the equivalent of 350 times around the world, with no unplanned maintenance. It is reassuring to see that our proactive inspection regime has enabled us to identify and swiftly address this issue and minimize any potential impact on our customers.”
