Rolls-Royce Trent 900

Turbofan aircraft engine

Delivering the lowest lifetime fuel burn and excellent environmental attributes, it’s easy to see why the Trent 900 is the engine of choice for the Airbus A380.

The Trent 900 is the fourth member of the Trent family and includes the latest technology proven to reduce noise and weight whilst increasing efficiency. For example, the engine’s 24 fan blades are to a new swept design that reduces the effect of shock waves as the tip of the fan rotates supersonically.

The fan containment system is also the first to be manufactured from titanium rather than Kevlar, and at the core of the engine the high-pressure shaft rotates in the opposite direction to the other two shafts for greater fuel efficiency.
