Not only the Rolls Royce Trent 900 and 1000, but now also the XWB-84 used on the A350

"During routine inspections" the engine manufacturer said to have "identified signs of wear in the intermediate compressor of a small number of engines in service for four or five years and which are approaching their first overhaul", ie a little more 100 aircraft, the group said in a press release.

It specifies that the engines concerned have not recorded any particular problems in flight but that he inspects "all other Trent XWB-84 engines with a similar lifespan as a precaution". However, it does not foresee any "significant disruption to customers or significant annual cost" as a result of these reviews.

The Trent XWB-84 is the engine that exclusively equips A350 XWB wide-body aircraft.

"The engines which will now be overhauled have travelled the equivalent of 350 times around the world, with no occurrence of unscheduled maintenance" due to an incident, says Chris Cholerton, president of the civil aerospace branch of Rolls Royce, cited in press release.

The group wants to be all the more reassuring that it has spent billions of dollars to solve a series of problems on the Trent 1000 engine used on the Dreamliner 787.

However, this is a new blow for the engine manufacturer, already hit hard by a major civil aviation crisis in the wake of the coronavirus and which has notably announced 9,000 job cuts.
