Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won a $630 million contract with Brazil-based conglomerate Synergy Aerospace to provide Trent 700 engines and TotalCare® long-term engine service support for nine Airbus A330 aircraft.
Germán Efromovich, Chairman, Synergy Group, said: “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Rolls-Royce and have confidence in the benefits of both its Trent 700 technology and support services.”
Peter Turner, Rolls-Royce, Civil Aerospace Vice President – Customer Business, said: “The Trent 700 has become the engine of choice for A330 operators, selected for around 75 per cent of future engine orders on the A330. The combination of Trent technology and comprehensive TotalCare® support will deliver significant benefits to Synergy Aerospace.”
The Trent 700 is the only engine specifically designed for the Airbus A330 and is the most fuel efficient, cleanest and quietest engine for the aircraft. More than 1,400 Trent 700 engines are now in service or on firm order.
