Aircelle and Rolls-Royce Sign Long-Term Trent
900 Nacelle Services Agreement for British
Airways' A380 Fleet
PR Newswire
FARNBOROUGH, England, July 11, 2012
FARNBOROUGH, England, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/
-Rolls-Royce and Aircelle (Safran group) today signed a comprehensive services offering
for Trent 900 engine nacelles on British Airways' A380s, marking a long-term global care
package commitment by these two original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) on a key
component of the Airbus flagship jetliner.
This contract - signed at the Farnborough Airshow - involves a 25-year coverage period
beginning in 2013, during which Aircelle will provide complete support on the nacelles it
produces and supplies for the Rolls-Royce Trent 900s that power British Airways' fleet of
12 A380s.
"Aircelle is committing its resources to the relationship with Rolls-Royce, and the resulting
global care coverage that supports British Airways will demonstrate the value we both can
offer through our collaboration," explained Vincent Mascré, the Chairman & Chief
Executive Officer of Aircelle.
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce's President - Large Engine Programs, said: "Airlines increasingly
are seeking TotalCare® packages from the OEMs, and our new contract with Aircelle is a
major element in Rolls-Royce's aircraft engine maintenance management program for
A380 operators."
As part of the agreement for British Airways, Aircelle will ensure the availability of key
Trent 900 nacelle components - including thrust reverser, fan cowls, air inlet and exhaust
system - which are to be located at the airline's London Heathrow Airport technical base,
enabling optimized aircraft dispatch and operation through a quick engine change (QEC)
capability.
Aircelle also will position more than 130 line-replaceable unit part types at the airline's
technical base, and is to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul coverage for the
nacelle hardware. In addition, the Aircelle is to create a Field Service Office (FSO) at
Rolls-Royce's Hatton Cross/London Heathrow Airport facility, offering around-the-clock
onsite support.
Rolls-Royce's Trent 900 is a 70,000-80,000-lb. thrust turbofan engine that delivers high
performance, low fuel consumption and environmentally-friendly operation on the A380.
Aircelle is the sole systems manufacturer and integrator for engine nacelles on the A380,
providing a state-of-the art system that includes the first use of an electrical thrust reverser
actuation system (ETRAS) on commercial jetliners.
