One hopes it is not like the Rolls-Royce RB211 all over again! As we all know it bankrupted Rolls Royce.
A bit more about the issues with the Trent 1000 TEN engine here.
Trent 1000 TEN
Issues with the redesigned TEN-model HPT blade emerged following a “detailed technical evaluation” of the proposed redesign.
“Although we regret that the blade will not be ready when we had originally planned, our understanding of the technical issues has significantly improved,” Rolls-Royce CEO Warren East said.
The issues with the Trent 1000 TEN also have implications for the Trent 7000 powering the Airbus A330neo. Rolls-Royce had planned to introduce the HPT blade from the TEN-model onto the Trent 7000 once it was available, but the development delays mean a later introduction to the Trent 7000. The company says it has been able to plan maintenance capacity and spare engine provision to safeguard against customer disruption.
The days run away like wild dogs over the hills.
