The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB aero engine with its unique three-shaft design features, advanced materials and the latest fan system technology. The top-notch engine balances fuel efficiency and life cycle costs while delivering weight savings and improved aerodynamics. As compared with the original Trent engine, it features 15 per cent fuel consumption advantage, it hits current and future emissions targets, goes further on less fuel and offers world beating performance and noise levels. The new assembly line in Dahlewitz, Germany, will help meet the exceptional demand for Rolls-Royce’s Trent XWB engines by delivering up to two engines per week by the end of 2017. Combining this with the capacity to deliver up to five Trent XWB engines from its main production line in Derby means that Rolls-Royce will be able to deliver one Trent XWB engine per day at peak.
