Liebherr-Aerospace has been selected to supply all pneumatic components for the new Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 business jet engine: the design, manufacture and maintenance of the pneumatic valves and associated actuators are handled by Liebherr -Aerospace Toulouse SAS in Toulouse, France.
Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS supplies Rolls-Royce with valves and light actuators for the Rolls-Royce business jet propulsion range, the Pearl 700. This is the latest addition to the Pearl family of engines Rolls-Royce which will exclusively equip the new Gulfstream G700.
This new contract is another important step in the relationship between Rolls-Royce and Liebherr-Aerospace: in 2015, the two companies set up a joint venture called Aerospace Transmission Technologies GmbH.
Based in Friedrichshafen, Germany, the latter is developing the capacity needed to produce power transmission boxes for the new Rolls-Royce UltraFan turbojet engine. Liebherr-Aerospace also provides a pneumatic valve for the Trent 7000 engine.
