The Chinese flag carrier ordered Trent 700EP engines to power 20 Airbus A330 aircrafts for a value of $1.5 billion, taking the airline’s fleet of Rolls-Royce powered A330s to 43 once the new planes, to be delivered from 2011, enter service. The contract includes maintenance, repair and overhaul. In China the Trent 700 has been chosen by nine customers to power 178 A330s.
Rolls-Royce is able to include technological advances into earlier Trent models as new versions are developed, the company said. Recently Rolls-Royce launched the Trent 700 Enhanced Performance engine with a 1.3% improved fuel consumption.
