Description: The Rolls Royce Trent XWB, originally called the Trent 1700, is the sixth member of successful Trent family of engines and was launched to power the Airbus A350 XWB family of commercial airplanes. Rolls Royce and Airbus reached an agreement on this new engine in October 2005 in parallel with the official launch of the A350 aircraft. Trent XWB engine family will be rated at 75,000 to 97,000 pounds of thrust.

The Rolls-Royce High Thrust Trent XWB is an enhanced version of the Trent XWB engine designed to power the Airbus A350-1000 airliner. The new engine delivers 97,000-lb of thrust on takeoff compared with 92,000-lb on the previous model. It makes possible for the A350-1000 to offer even more payload and range. The additional thrust will be achieved by the inclusion of new high temperature turbine technology, increasing the size of the engine core and advanced fan aerodynamics. The Higher Thrust Trent XWB will enable airlines to fly the new A350-1000 approximately 400nm further with a full load of 350 passengers, or carry around 4.5 extra tons of payload at a given range. The higher thrust variant of the Trent XWB is scheduled to run for the first time in mid-2014 and enter service in mid-2017.
