Trent 1000 wins second order for Boeing 787 VIP
The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 has been selected by Hong Kong real estate tycoon, Joseph Lau, to power his Boeing 787-8 VIP aircraft on order from Boeing Business Jets.
This agreement makes Mr. Lau the launch customer for the Trent-powered 787 VIP in Asia and is the second time the Trent 1000 has been selected for a 787 configured for corporate or VIP use.
Mark King, Chief Commercial Officer – Civil Large Engines for Rolls-Royce, said: " From our experience as the leading engine supplier in the corporate jet sector, we understand the needs of VIP operators. Our customers are now ranking the environmental credentials of an engine alongside exceptional reliability and low cost of ownership, making the Trent 1000 the best fit for corporate and VIP operations, and we are delighted that Mr Lau has recognised this with his engine selection.”
As the launch engine for the 787, the Trent 1000 will be installed on the first aircraft that will roll out of the Boeing factory this Sunday, 8th July.
