Aircelle to supply nacelles for the newly-launched Airbus A330neo twin-engine jetliner

A major new program has been awarded to Aircelle (Safran), with the company’s selection to supply nacelles for Airbus’ latest A330 version – the A330neo (new engine option) jetliner. These nacelles are to equip the A330neo’s two large Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 turbofan powerplants, and will use Aircelle’s experience gained in developing and supplying nacelles for the Airbus A380 jetliner’s high-thrust engines – which are in a similar size category. As with the A380, Aircelle will apply its expertise in the use of composite materials, acoustic treatment and system architecture for the A330neo nacelles. ¬†Production activity will involve all of Aircelle’s primary industrial sites: Le Havre, France; Burnley, England; and Casablanca, Morocco; with painting, assembly and delivery performed from its Colomiers, France facility located near Airbus’ A330 final assembly line at Toulouse Blagnac Airport.
