Boeing Statement on Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 Package C Engine Issue

Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 engines to undergo further inspections as it warns of disruption to customers

Rolls-Royce today warned it would require more money and more inspections to fix problems with Trent 1000 engines on Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes, leading to further disruption for airlines.

The aerospace and engineering giant said it had chose to carry out more checks on the 380 engines now in service with airlines from the "package C" tranche of production, the majority of the 500 in operation.

The latest problem concerns a wear issue in the Trent 1000's compressor that's worse than expected, according to Rolls-Royce, which said the inspections will be accompanied by safety guidance to airlines issued by airworthiness authorities.

Rolls-Royce Holdings plc, an engineering company, develops, manufactures, markets, and sells power and propulsion systems in the United Kingdom and internationally.

"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", it said in a statement.

"Our focus is on supporting our customers and doing all we can to minimise any impact on their operations", says Rolls-Royce chief executive Warren East. The time limit would drop as low as 140 minutes, compared with the current window of 330 minutes, a source familiar with the plans said.

The warning by Rolls-Royce comes ahead of anticipated announcements by USA and European aviation regulators, who are expected to issue guidance to airlines as soon as Friday.

Boeing said the 787 has safely flown more than 3.2 billion miles since entering commercial service in 2011.

The engine's problems have already forced airlines to change schedules and lease other aircraft but moves to reduce Extended Range Twin Engine Operational Performance Standards (ETOPS) for affected planes will have further consequences for long-haul routes.

East said Rolls was working with Boeing and airlines to minimise the disruption.

The airliner also has Trent 1000 TEN model engines in its 787 fleet which are unaffected.

In a statement, Air New Zealand said there would be some impact to its worldwide schedule, however it could not say how many flights would be affected or when.

In March, Rolls said the cash hit from the problem should peak at £340mn in 2018 before falling in 2019.
