Rolls-Royce Selects Goodrich To Develop NextGen Engine Fuel Nozzles

Platforms Include New Trent XWB Engine For Airbus A350

Goodrich Corporation has signed a research agreement with Rolls-Royce to develop the next generation of fuel nozzles for "lean burn" combustion technology systems, which would be used on future environmentally responsible gas turbine aircraft engines. Goodrich also has been selected to supply Rolls-Royce with the combustion system fuel nozzles for the new Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine program for the Airbus A350XWB commercial aircraft. All work will be performed by Goodrich's Engine Components team in West Des Moines, Iowa.

Lean burn technology allows for a more complete combustion cycle, which reduces emissions and increases efficiency. Goodrich's lean burn research and development program focuses on advanced combustion fuel nozzles designed to meet increasingly stringent requirements for reduced emissions on next generation aircraft. Lean burn technology can significantly reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, improving local air quality around airports and reducing aviation's climate change footprint.

Daphne Falletti, president of Goodrich Engine Components, said "These opportunities with Rolls-Royce to develop breakthrough technology and provide products for their next generation engine programs further strengthen our market position in advanced combustion systems."
