Leading partner to Rolls-Royce on the Airbus A350 XWB
Safran Transmission Systems is supplying a new-generation accessory drive train (ADT) for the Rolls-Royce XWB engine that will power Airbus's new long-haul widebody twin, the A350.
The ADT for the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine represents a new step up in terms of its performance, quality, reliability and services, all integral parts of the new Rolls-Royce engine, which will offer 25% lower fuel consumption and carbon emissions than the previous generation.
Using the same basic architecture, this high-tech ADT will handle twice the power of the previous version from 20 years earlier.
At Safran Transmission Systems, we have set up a dynamic feedback process to track the in-service performance of our products. For the Trent XWB, Safran Transmission Systems is offering a complete slate of MRO services to ensure high dispatch reliability for operators as soon as the airplane enters service.
