SKF has signed contracts worth over SEK 1 billion with Rolls-Royce to supply main shaft bearings for their new gas turbine engine programmes. SKF’s main shaft bearings will be used in a number of Rolls-Royce engines, including the Trent XWB gas turbine engine. The Trent XWB is the sixth generation of the Trent family of engines, designed specifically for the Airbus A350 XWB family of aircraft.

Rutger Barrdahl, head of SKF’s aerospace business, says: “We are able to provide Rolls-Royce with the long-term capacity, security of supply and commitment to invest in product development that meet their needs and match our own ambitions within world-class manufacturing.”

Deliveries for the new engine programmes have commenced and are expected to reach their full rate by 2018.
