Engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce has unveiled a Trent 1000 engine at its Seletar Campus in Singapore. It is the first engine to be made in the country for Singapore’s long-haul budget carrier, Scoot. The Trent 1000, which is fully assembled and tested by a team of 80, will provide power to Scoot’s new fleet of 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Education minister Heng Swee Keat witnessed the ceremony alongside Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO, and Jonathan Asherson, Rolls-Royce’s regional director for ASEAN & Pacific. “As a Singapore-based airline we support all things Singapore – and it’s especially fantastic to be able to feature Singapore-built engines on our brand-new 787s,” said Wilson.
