Rolls-Royce’s first run with a Trent 1000-TEN has been a success. The engine is set to power all 787 variants. The company aims for the engine to be certified to deliver 78,000lb of thrust in late 2015. Developed with technology from the Trent XWB and Advance engine programme the Trent 1000-TEN aims to deliver thrust and efficiency improvements. Demonstrator programmes have validated improvements to high-pressure turbine compressors, internal air systems and a composite fan case dressing system.
