Rolls-Royce to conduct additional Trent 1000 Package C engine inspections

Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 engines to undergo further inspections as it warns of disruption to customers

Rolls-Royce is warning of further disruption to Boeing 787 operators after disclosing that it will be conducting expanded inspections of certain Trent 1000 engines. The Civil Aerospace segment provides commercial aero engines, such as airlines, business aviation, and helicopter engines for various sectors of the airline and corporate jet markets, as well as aftermarket services.

It announced the need for stepped up inspections after liaising with authorities over a separate issue with the compressor on Trent 1000 Package C series engines.

It said the matter would require more regular inspections and lead "to higher than previously guided cash costs being incurred during 2018".

This is a known issue and we will continue to work with Rolls-Royce, our customers and the regulators to fully resolve it. Boeing is deploying support teams to mitigate service disruption.

In December, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) ordered airlines to replace some Rolls Trent 1000 engines. Societe Generale raised shares of Rolls-Royce from a "sell" rating to a "hold" rating in a research report on Thursday, March 8th. Durability problems with the Trent 1000 and an engine used on the Airbus SE A380 led to a £170m cash cost previous year, and that figure was already set to double in 2018.

"Our team of technical experts and service engineers is working around the clock to ensure we return them to full service as soon as possible", he said.

Rolls-Royce recently highlighted the Trent 1000 durability issue, and the costs associated with addressing it, in a financial results disclosure.

"It's disappointing and frustrating that our new aircraft don't work the way they are supposed to", spokesman Lasse Sandaker-Nilsen said, adding that it had cancelled a flight from Paris to NY next week as a result.

This check was already required prior to the engine reaching a flying threshold of 2000 cycles (one way journeys).

A Virgin spokeswoman said it had been aware of the increased inspections and that the cover it had in place would be sufficient. "Air New Zealand also has Trent 1000 TEN model engines in its 787 fleet and these are unaffected".

The company maintained its estimate of £450m for annual free cash flow, but East declined to say on a call how big the additional impact on cash will be.
