Scoot presented with one-of-a-kind Trent 1000 fan

Rolls-Royce presented a one-of-a-kind Trent 1000 hollow titanium wide chord fan blade to Scoot Airlines customised with 'Scootitude' by local artist Ceno2 at the Singapore Airshow on Saturady.

The fan blade, produced at the Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus in Singapore, was presented to Campbell Wilson, CEO, Scoot Airlines, to celebrate the airlines' selection of the Trent 1000 engine to power its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Local graffiti artist, Mohammad Azlan Ramlan aka Ceno2 was commissioned by Rolls-Royce to create a unique graffiti design on the titanium blade.

Speaking about the experience he said, "Painting on the Trent 1000 fan blade gave me the opportunity to combine the boldness of free style Graffiti with the precision of classic brush techniques.

"With the design, I tried to portray the notion of people going places and also coming together as one. The black splatters reaching out from the globe symbolises our constant yearning to travel beyond our physical boundaries."

Scoot announced its 20 new Boeing 787 aircraft will be powered by Trent 1000 engines in June 2013. The first of these Rolls-Royce powered aircraft will be delivered to Scoot later this year.
