Rolls-Royce delivers 7,000th engine from Dahlewitz site

Rolls-Royce today celebrated the delivery of the 7,000th engine made at our site in Dahlewitz, Germany. The engine, a BR710, will be dispatched to Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation to power a Gulfstream G550.

The site, to the south of Berlin, began production in 1995 and now employs over 2,300 people, playing an important role in Rolls-Royce's global manufacturing and development footprint.

Alongside production of the BR710, the facility assembles a range of business jet engines including the BR725 and Tay 611-8C, as well as the V2500 for the Airbus A320 aircraft family. The Dahlewitz site is also home to testing facilities for Rolls-Royce's new power gearbox.

The 7,000th engine is a member of the reliable and proven BR700 family that powers some of the fastest, longest-range and largest business jets on the market. More than 4,000 BR700 engines have been built and the fleet has recorded over 20 million cumulative operating hours.

Commenting on this milestone, Paul O'Neil, Rolls-Royce, EVP Assembly and Test, Civil Aerospace, said: “We are very proud of this achievement, which comes as the result of more than twenty years of hard work and dedication from our team in Dahlewitz. It also underlines the significant role the site plays in supporting Rolls-Royce's continued success in the civil aerospace sector.”

In 2017 the Dahlewitz site will also start assembling the Trent XWB, the world's most efficient large civil aero engine, complementing our main XWB assembly facility in Derby, UK.
