Through an alliance established in 1992 between Westinghouse Electric Corporation and Rolls-Royce plc, a program has been implemented that will bring the industrial Trent aero engine to the power generation marketplace. The Rolls-Royce Trent has been initially sized at 50 MW, with a development potential to higher power ratings, and is offered by Westinghouse as a complete power generation package, the “Trent EconoPac”.

The Trent EconoPac sets a new performance standard in the industry with a nominal simple cycle efficiency of 42 percent. It is also ideal for combined cycle and cogeneration applications; a net combined cycle power of 63 MW at 52 percent efficiency can be developed. This paper describes the Trent industrial engine and EconoPac and reviews the development program with emphasis on unique features that benefit the power plant operator.
