Rolls-Royce begins testing of Trent 7000


A Trent 7000 demonstrator engine has run for the first time, marking another program milestone for the latest member of the Rolls-Royce Trent family. The demonstrator, used to prove the key technical features of the engine, had a successful initial power run on a test bed in Derby, UK.

The Trent 7000, the exclusive powerplant for the Airbus A330neo and the seventh member of the Trent family, is scheduled to enter service in 2017.

The 68,000-72,000 lb thrust Trent 7000 will improve specific fuel consumption by 10%, and will have twice the bypass ratio and half the noise.
