Aero Engine Controls has awarded Cosworth a multimillion dollar contract that includes producing components for the engine control system of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine.

Cosworth Group has won an eight-year, multimillion dollar contract with aerospace engine control leader Aero Engine Controls (AEC), a Rolls-Royce and Goodrich joint venture. Cosworth will produce components for the engine control system of the Trent 1000 that powers the Boeing 787 and the XWB that will power the Airbus A350 as part of the strategic manufacturing partnership. Cosworth will manufacture the main casing for the Trent 1000 FADEC system. This complex component will be machined from a 100-kg single piece of aluminum through a process that will take 22 h and will produce a final item of just 7 kg.
