Airbus A330neo six weeks behind schedule: source

Plans by Airbus to upgrade its best-selling wide-body jet, the A330, have slipped six weeks behind schedule due to "marginal" development delays at engine maker Rolls-Royce, a source familiar with the matter said on Friday.

Airbus declined to comment on the situation.

Rolls-Royce, whose newly developed Trent 7000 will power the fuel-saving A330neo, was not immediately available for comment.

The Wall Street Journal earlier quoted the head of the airplane's first customer, TAP Portugal, as saying its first A330neo would arrive in March 2018. Airbus most recently said the A330neo would be delivered by the end of 2017.

When it launched the A330neo in 2014, it targeted first delivery in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Delays to the first flight of Airbus SE’s revamped A330neo jetliner stem from an unexpected requirement for extra testing of the model’s Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc engines, according to the planemaker.

Rolls-Royce is struggling to find the capacity on its test-beds to complete the extra trials, Airbus’s head of programs, Didier Evrard, said in an interview. That has pushed back the jet’s inaugural flight from spring to late summer, with service entry now scheduled for the end of the first half of 2018.

While the A330neo’s Trent 7000 turbine is derived from an engine already used on the Boeing Co. 787, Rolls-Royce added ducts that will divert, or “bleed,” hot air over the Airbus plane’s wings for de-icing purposes. The Boeing aircraft employs a completely different cold-weather system featuring embedded heating mats.

“The main issue is not the product itself, it’s the workload at Rolls-Royce and, particularly, the testing capacity,” Evrard said. “We have added some functions like the bleed function, which is not on the 787, so you have to go on the whole development cycle again. This requires a lot of testing to certify the engine.”

Testing Bottleneck
London-based Rolls-Royce said in an emailed statement that it is continuing to work closely with Airbus on the A330neo program and that it aims to dispatch the initial set of Trent 7000 engines “in the coming days.”

Evrard acknowledged that the first turbines are “very close” to being packaged and sent to Airbus’s base in Toulouse, France, where the planemaker has two revised A330 airframes ready and waiting. The manufacturer has so far secured 210 orders for the upgraded plane, with TAP set to be its first operator. The Portuguese airline said in December that its first jet would be delayed into March 2018 from the end of this year.

Rolls is also the sole provider of engines for Airbus’s A350 wide-body, which is ramping up production following 49 deliveries last year. The Trent XWB turbine for the largest -1000 variant of the plane is approaching certification. Meanwhile, a powerplant for the 787-10 is also in final development at the British manufacturer.

While Rolls-Royce has expanded test facilities at its main plant in Derby, as well as in Germany and Spain, to cope with the workload, Evrard said the stresses are inevitable.

“Across the board there are production ramp-ups and new developments,” he said. “This is really what they have been struggling with.”

от вас явный негатив, но объясняю ОДИН раз.
кому-то трудно найти. но главное - через пару недель оно утонет в поисковиках и найти даже вам будет крайне сложно.
вопрос был к вам, что не выкладываете, а не запрашивали вашего решения, как всем людям удобнее искать.

говорите проще - хочу казаться самому себе важным, даже если это получается только мелкими пакостями.

Больше на такие провокации не буду отвечать.

Моя вина то что забыл ссылку поставить, и где написано что она нужна, даже не чувствую себя ответственным. А Вы можете свободно не читать мои посты, есть даже такая кнопка и рекомендую Вам если хотите допринести дискуссии, то выкладывайте ссылку и не наежайте на других, а смотрите свои дела.

Я Вам не отец и не сын что-бы так со мной разговаривали. Вы свою маму учите и воспитывайте!

И следущий раз поставите #автоудаление на вашу срачь!

Rolls-Royce despatches Trent 7000 engines for A330neo

Rolls-Royce has despatched the Trent 7000 engines that will power the first flight of the Airbus A330neo.

The engines left the Rolls-Royce site at Derby, UK, and, after the nacelles are fitted and powerplant integration is completed at Safran in Toulouse, France, will be installed on the aircraft at Airbus during the Summer.

The Trent 7000, the seventh member of the Trent engine and the exclusive powerplant for the A330neo, brings together:

  • Experience from the Trent 700 - the engine of choice for the current A330
  • Architecture from the Trent 1000 TEN - the latest version of the Trent 1000 engine
  • Latest technology from the Trent XWB - the world’s most efficient large civil engine
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said: “We are pleased to have reached this important milestone and look forward to flight testing getting underway later this year.”

Rolls-Royce also provides the most popular engine choice for the original A330, the Trent 700. The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 delivers a step change in performance and economics compared to that engine. It will improve specific fuel consumption by ten per cent; have twice the bypass ratio; and will significantly reduce noise.
