Extended inspection on Trent 1000 engines, disrupt Boeing 787 operations

April 17, 2018

Rolls Royce warns that it faces higher costs in 2018, because it has decided to carry out additional inspection on Trent 1000 engines on top of those already planned.

 

“The increased inspection frequency is driven by our further understanding of the durability of the Trent 1000 Package C compressor” said the Rolls Royce on Friday. 

 

This will unfortunately disrupt flight operations specially for Boeing 787 customers. There are 380 Package C engines currently in-service with airlines. This new regime does not impact Trent 1000 Package B engines or Trent 1000 TEN engines.

 

While the compressor technical issue was known at the time of our results, the requirement for more regular inspections will lead to higher than previously guided cash costs being incurred during 2018.
