Low Pressure Turbine for the Airbus A350-1000´s Trent XWB-97 speaks Spanish

ITP will be responsible for the supply of Low Pressure Turbines (LPT) for the new Airbus A350-1000´s Trent XWB-97

Industria de Turbo Propulsores (ITP) and Rolls-Royce have signed an agreement by which ITP will be responsible for the supply of Low Pressure Turbines (LPT) for two new engines: the Trent XWB-97 for the Airbus A350-1000 and the Trent 1000-TEN for all versions of the Boeing 787. This contract will generate sales for ITP of 4.000 million euros in the next 30 years.

Ignacio Mataix, Chief Executive Officer of ITP said “ These contracts are a very important step in the ITP strategic plan which includes doubling ITP´s sales in the 2011-2015 period, as well as continuing to provide Rolls-Royce with Low Pressure Turbines for engines powering twin aisle commercial aircraft. For ITP this confirms a continuation in the growth path, as well as continuation of investments in leading programmes with high technological content.”

In both agreements ITP will participate as a Risk and Revenue Sharing Partner for the life of the programmes, hence extending ITP´s participation to the complete family of Rolls-Royce engines for twin aisle commercial aircraft.

ITP will be responsible for the Design, Manufacture and Assembly of the Low Pressure Turbine module for both engines. The Low Pressure Turbine Module is one of the main engine modules in modern large turbofans. ITP will perform the complete design of the turbines, including all phases of the design, from conceptual design, to detail design and development utilizing the latest technology In order to produce the cleanest and most efficient turbines.

ITP will manufacture all the key components of the turbines in the facilities of the ITP Group utilizing the latest manufacturing technologies and will perform the module assembly in order to supply a complete assembled module to Rolls- Royce, ready to be installed in the engines.

The Trent XWB-97 is the new engine being developed by Rolls-Royce to power on exclusive basis the Airbus A350 -1000, with capacity for 350 passengers. The engine will have a thrust of 97.000 pounds.

The ITP group, jointly held by Sener Aeronáutica (53.125%) and Rolls-Royce (46.875%), includes among its activities such areas as Design, Research & Development, Manufacturing and Casting, as well as the Assembly and Testing of aeronautical engines and gas turbines. It is also an official maintenance service provider for the majority of the world’s currently active engine manufacturers. The ITP Group has 18 production centres in Spain, Great Britain, Malta, the USA, India and Mexico, and a staff of 3000 workers

  1. This should not present any problems for RR,they where the first to exceed 100,000lbft thrust and subsequently 110,000lbft thrust,engines 8104 and 8115 built primarily for the 777x. Shafted by Mcnerney of GE by offering Boeing 500million for exclusivity on the 777x. The aim for the A350-1000 engine is to produce more power without increase in casing size.Together with 84% of parts marrying up with other Rolls Engines.This will provide much more flexibility for the Airlines.
