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.

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 engines for the original A330, the Trent 700. The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will have twice the bypass ratio, will significantly reduce noise and improve specific fuel consumption by 10%.
