Description: The Rolls-Royce RB211-524, RB211-22B, is a three-shaft layout, shorter and rigid engine designed to power Boeing 747 and 767 commercial aircraft models. Currently, there are more than 1,100 engines of this type in service worldwide, which have logged more than 80 million flying hours. In addition, the engine is fully interchangeable between Boeing 747-400 and 767-300 aircraft that can reduce ownership costs for a 747/767 mixed fleet.
The 60,600-lb RB211-524G/H-T engine was introduced in 1998 powering the Boeing 747-400 airliner and 747-400F freighter. In early 2001, the engine was cleared for service on the 767.
The -524G/H-T is a highly efficient fuel consumption engine thanks to the addition of the Trent family of engines high-pressure system. The Trent combustor reduces NOx emissions by 40%, making the G/H-T model the most environmentally safe engine on the 747-400.
On 3 April 2006 CargoLux Airlines International selected Rolls-Royce RB211-524H-T engine to power two additional Boeing 747-400F freighters to be delivered in 2007 and 2008. Eleven out of 16 CargoLux's 747-400F fleet are powered by Rolls Royce engines.
