Rolls-Royce wins $5bn Etihad Airways order

This takes the total number of Etihad A350 aircrafts on order to 62, all powered by Rolls Royce engines. Etihad Airways CEO, James Hogan said, "The engine will enable us to offer new levels of efficency and will help maintain Etihad's fleet as one of the greenest in the sky".

The company also announced a $300m deal with Qatar Airways to power five Airbus A330 freighter aircrafts.

In other news, Rolls-Royce has been awarded a $138m (£85.7m) five-year services contract by Petrobras in Brazil.

The agreement with the deep and ultra-deep water oil and gas exploration and production company is to support its oil production activities in offshore Brazil.

Rolls-Royce will supply Petrobras with advanced maintenance and repair services to support fifteen Rolls-Royce RB211-G62 industrial gas turbine power generation units which are installed on four oil platforms operating in the Campos Basin.

The long-term service agreement (LTSA) contract has a potential value of up to $220m (£136.7m) over its five-year renewal period.

Andrew Heath, Rolls-Royce president of energy, said: "Rolls-Royce technology is at the heart of Brazil's thriving energy infrastructure. This services contract renewal reflects the excellent working relationship we have developed on this project with Petrobras over the past five years."

Eberaldo de Almeida Neto, general manager of the Rio de Janeiro operational unit of Petrobras, added: "Over the past five years Rolls-Royce advanced power generation technology and services has helped us to meet our oil and gas production objectives for these important oil platforms. We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Rolls-Royce and look forward to continued high levels of availability and reliability."

More than 50 Rolls-Royce engineers and technicians are working on the project, most based full-time on the four oil platforms.

The Rolls-Royce energy workshop at Macae in Brazil supports their work, and in 2014 the engineering giant will inaugurate a new, $100m-plus investment, purpose-built gas turbine package, assembly and test facility in Santa Cruz.
