Advanced High Pressure Ratio Efficient Compressor Technology (APRECOT) (SILOET II Project 12)

SILOET II Project 12 focused on the design, make, test and data analysis for an advanced high pressure ratio compressor. This compressor was addressing the requirements of a future gas turbine architecture concept identified to meet the environmental targets with new wide body aircraft with an EIS of 2020 and beyond. The project enabled Rolls-Royce to draw on technologies investigated in current lower technology readiness level projects, in order to achieve efficiency beyond the state-of-the-art and will provide TRL5 validation.
