Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR., ADR: RYCEY) today announces it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a TotalCare maintenance agreement with Air Mauritius for six Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84 engines that power three of their A350-900 aircraft.
The agreement provides the airline with predictability as well as a known cost for the services and maintenance of the fleet.
TotalCare is designed to provide operational certainty for customers by transferring time on wing and maintenance cost risk back to Rolls-Royce. This industry-leading premium service offering is supported by data delivered through the Rolls-Royce advanced engine health monitoring system, which helps provide customers with increased operational availability, reliability and efficiency.
Ewen McDonald, Chief Customer Officer – Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, said:
“We are delighted to sign this Memorandum of Understanding with Air Mauritius for the six Trent XWB engines that power three A350-900 aircraft. We look forward to working with Air Mauritius and providing a TotalCare service that maximises performance for their fleet for many years to come.”
As versatile as it is reliable, the Trent XWB has already shown it is equally efficient at powering short-haul or long-haul flights, which makes it the ideal solution for passenger and freighter operators with a varied network. As the world’s most efficient large aero engine in service, the Trent XWB will also help fast track Air Mauritius’ sustainability journey. With a 15 per cent fuel consumption advantage over the first generation of Trent engine, the Trent XWB goes further on less fuel, and offers leading performance and noise levels. It is also certified to operate on a 50% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blend today and has been proven to be compatible with 100% SAF for the future.
