 Rolls-Royce has won an order from aircraft lessor AerCap for Trent 1000 engines to power ten Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The deal is valued at $450m at list prices. In addition, AerCap has options for a further five Trent 1000-powered 787s. 
The aircraft will be powered by the latest version of the Trent 1000, the Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology). This engine incorporates technologies from the Trent XWB and Advance engine programmes contributing to the Dreamliner achieving a 20 per cent greater efficiency than the aircraft it replaces, as well as having half the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft. 
The Trent 1000 TEN, which will power all variants of the Boeing 787, entered service in November last year. 
Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, director - customers and services, civil aerospace, said: "We are proud to have AerCap, a global leader in the lessor market, order further Trent 1000 engines as our latest variant goes into service. We continue to see customers recognise the economic benefits of our engine and its service support. " 
The Trent 1000 has powered the first flight of every version of the Dreamliner - the 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10.
