Rolls wins Emirates deal

posted on 06/11/2001: 1746 views


Rolls-Royce yesterday won a US$475 million contract to supply Trent engines to Emirates airlines. Rolls-Royce is also in the race for the engines on the 22 A380s on firm order, and up to 10 options, and the 25 Boeing 777s which formed part of Emirates' announcement at the air show. Emirates airline signed a letter of intent for eight Airbus A340-600 aircraft with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2005. Each is powered by four 53,000-56,000 pound thrust Rolls-Royce Trent 500s, the sole engine available for the A340-500. Emirates will become the world's largest customer for the Trent 700.



The Dubai carrier already has six A340-500s on order. Additionally, it has ordered three A330-200s, with deliveries starting in April 2003. "Emirates' expansion plans are a welcome signal for the industry. The airline already successfully operates two types of aircraft with Trent engines and, with the Trent 500 on the A340-500/-600, it will be taking a third.



Emirates also operates a mix of Boeing 777-200 and 777-300s, powered by Trent 800 engines rated at 87,000 and 92,000 pound thrust. Thirteen 777s are currently in service, and eight are to be delivered. Rolls-Royce's current global order book is valued at £15 billion. Rolls-Royce has repair and maintenance facilities through joint ventures in Singapore, Hong Kong and Dallas. Abu Dhabi-based Gamco carries out repair and maintenance for Rolls Royce in this region.
