ITP and Rolls-Royce have signed a contract whereby ITP will supply the Low Pressure Turbine (LPT) for the Trent 7000 engine for all versions of the Airbus 330neo, as a risk and revenue sharing partner through the entire life of the program.

This way, ITP will be responsible for the design, manufacture and assembly of the LPT module, which is one of the key modules in today’s large turbofan engines. ITP will conduct the full design of the turbine, including all of its phases, from conceptual design to detailed engineering and development, using the most advanced technology with the goal of producing the most environmentally friendly and efficient turbine possible.

In addition, ITP will manufacture the majority of the turbine’s key components and will also be responsible for integration and assembly in order to supply the module to Rolls-Royce for subsequent installation on the engine.

With this contract, ITP broadens its participation as a risk and revenue sharing partner across the entire family of Rolls-Royce engines for the twin-aisle aircraft segment. Since 1992, ITP is the low pressure turbine supplier of all Rolls-Royce Trent engines.

The Airbus A330 comes in two versions, the 800 for 252 passengers and the 900 for 310 passengers, both equipped with Trent 7000 engines. With an Entry Into Service (EIS) planned for the end of 2017, Airbus expects that the A300neo will become the benchmark aircraft in its market segment. For its part, ITP estimates that it will reach a global market share of over 50% in the low pressure turbine sector for twin-aisle aircraft.
