BSP is very proud to have a long-standing relationship with Spie UK over many years, helping the business to develop Derby sitesClive Roddick,
Director, BSP Consulting
With more than 200 contracts completed for Spie UK over the past ten years who work for Rolls-Royce on their UK sites, BSP Consulting are delighted to be involved in developing a new aero space testbed in Derby Known as Testbed 80, it will be used to test current engines – as well as larger engines currently in development.
Rolls-Royce, which designs, develops and builds the Trent family of engines at Derby, is investing in the new facility because existing testbeds at the Sinfin site are not large enough to accommodate future engines, such as the Ultrafan.
As part of a wider £150m investment in UK aerospace facilities, and which is expected to be commissioned in 2020. It will support Rolls-Royce’s ongoing industrial transformation and will provide important additional capacity as the civil aerospace business continues to ramp-up engine production and deliver on a record order book.
The largest indoor facility of it’s type in the world, it will be capable of testing a range of today’s engines, including the Trent XWB and the Trent 1000. The facility will also serve as a base for testing UltraFan, Rolls-Royce’s engine for the next generation of aircraft.
BSP is providing external works services for the new testbed.
