Rolls-Royce has delivered the 100th Pearl 15 engine to its customer Bombardier in Montreal, Canada. The engine, developed and built in Dahlewitz near Berlin, Germany, is the first member of the successful Pearl engine family and the exclusive option for Bombardier’s latest business jets, the Global 5500 and Global 6500.

The engine was custom-designed for these aircraft, which have the longest range and the largest cabin in their category and feature Bombardier’s signature smooth ride technology.

The Dahlewitz site, which has delivered more than 1,800 engines overall to Bombardier to date, started production in June 1995 and today employs approximately 2,500 people. As Rolls-Royce’s Center of Excellence for Business Aviation Engines, the site has an important role in its global manufacturing and development footprint.
