Rolls-Royce has delivered the 8,000th engine made at its site in Dahlewitz, Germany. The engine, a BR725, will be shipped to Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation in Savannah, Georgia, U.S.A., to power its current flagship business jet, the G650ER.
The Dahlewitz site, located south of Berlin, started production in June 1995 and today employs approximately 3,000 people. As the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for business aviation engines, the site has an important role in the company’s global manufacturing and development footprint.
Alongside production of the BR725, a range of business jet engines including the BR710 and Pearl 15 engines, as well as the Trent XWB for the Airbus A350, are assembled at the facility. The Dahlewitz site is also home to development and testing facilities for Rolls-Royce’s new power gearbox for the UltraFan® demonstrator program.Email Post to a Friend
