Airbus to provide A350 engine components

  • 06-Feb-2009 03:33 EST
Rolls-Royce Corp. selected Eaton Corp. for two applications on the engine for the Airbus A350 XWB program. Eaton will design, develop, and supply both the main engine fuel pump and the engine build-up subsystems for the next generation of Trent engines.  Anticipated revenue from these applications could exceed $750 million over the 40-year life of the program. Within this agreement, Eaton will provide support during the engine development and test phase, which is expected to be completed by 2012. Eaton will also provide production units and aftermarket support for both applications throughout the life of the Trent XWB program.
