Liebherr on the Rolls-Royce Pearl® 10X Engine
Liebherr-Aerospace has been selected by Spirit AeroSystems, headquartered in Wichita, Kansas (USA), to supply the thrust reverser actuation system for the Rolls-Royce Pearl® 10X engine. It is the first thrust reverser actuation system contract for Liebherr and thus marks an important milestone in the company’s history.
Leveraging on its expertise and based on technologies that are available and mature, Liebherr developed the new system in a short time with low development risk. It is fully compliant to the latest REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) requirements, which is an important step on the path towards more environmental friendly aircraft.
