The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) officially certified on 11 July 2016 the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engine, which will power the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
This certification confirms that the engine has fulfilled EASA’s most stringent safety requirements; it is the major engine milestone prior to the engine powering the 787 Dreamliner into service in 2017.
The Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology) will power all variants of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family. The engine draws on technologies from the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine and Advance engine programme, delivering thrust and efficiency improvements.
The certificate was officially presented by Trevor Wood, Certification Director, EASA, to Gareth Jones, Trent 1000 Chief Engineer, Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce at Farnborough Airshow. The presentation was attended by Nicole Piasecki, Vice President Propulsion Division, Boeing.
