Goodrich to Develop Fuel Nozzles for Rolls-Royce
October 30, 2009
Goodrich signed a research agreement with Rolls-Royce to develop the next generation of fuel nozzles for lean-burn combustion-technology systems to be used on future environmentally responsible gas-turbine aircraft engines. Goodrich was also selected to supply Rolls-Royce with the combustion-system fuel nozzles for the new Trent XWB engine program for the Airbus A350XWB commercial aircraft. All the work will be performed by Goodrich’s Engine Components team in West Des Moines, Iowa. Lean-burn technology can significantly reduce NOx emissions.
