The company confirmed that their Power Gearbox successfully reached 70,000 horsepower during a test at a Rolls-Royce facility in Dahlewitz, Germany. The Power Gearbox will play a key role in the company’s next-generation UltraFan engine by helping to deliver improved efficiency over a wide range of thrusts. The gearbox is designed to run all the way up to 100,000 horsepower. The UltraFan engine will be available in 2025.
