Hamilton Sundstrand Awarded Contract for Trent 1000 Engine

The Rolls-Royce Co. selected Hamilton Sundstrand to design and manufacture the gearbox system for the Trent 1000 engine that is being developed by The Boeing Co.

Hamilton Sundstrand's press release estimated that, over the lifetime of the engine program, the work is potentially worth more than $350 million to the company.

The environmental control system, electric power generation and start system, remote power distribution system, auxiliary power unit, primary power distribution system, nitrogen generation system, emergency power and electric pump subsystems are all among the components Hamilton Sundstrand is supplying.

This is the second time this year that Hamilton Sundstrand and Boeing will work together on 7E7-related projects. Earlier in 2004, Boeing selected Hamilton Sundstrand for eight aircraft systems on the 7E7 Dreamliner.
