LUCAS TAKES SHARE OF ROLLS-ROYCE TRENT ENGINE

 PARIS, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucas and Rolls-Royce plc have signed a Revenue Sharing Partnership Agreement on the Rolls-Royce Trent engine series, and Lucas has taken a 3.5 percent share in the Trent engine family. Around 25 percent of the Trent engine is now held on a risk and revenue sharing basis. Lucas has also been selected as the Preferred Supplier of Full Authority Digital Engine Controls (FADEC) for the Trent and RB211 family of engines and their derivatives.
 This agreement formalizes a long-standing relationship on the supply of Electronic Engine Controls on programs such as RB211-535 (on Boeing 757), RB211-524 G/H (on Boeing 767, 747-400), RB199 (on Panavia Tornado) and RTM 322 (on EH101 Merlin helicopter).
 Stan Todd, project director at Rolls-Royce Trent, said: "Lucas, in a long and successful relationship with Rolls-Royce, is providing the FADEC for the Trent engine, Rolls-Royce's new high thrust turbofan which is expected to take at least a third of the market for large civil engines over the next two years."
 Todd continued, "The Lucas electronic system, already in service on our RB211-524 G/H engines for the Boeing 747 and 767, is setting world- beating standards for reliability and integrity, and the Trent will benefit fully from this superb pedigree and technological achievement."
 Lucas also supplies the Heat Management System and Fuel Metering Unit on the Rolls-Royce Trent Engine Series.
 Lucas aerospace businesses are leading suppliers of aerospace systems and equipment with annual sales of $1.2 billion and operating facilities across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, as well as associated companies, joint ventures, marketing and customer support facilities around the world.
