Advanced High Pressure Ratio Efficient Compressor Technology – Rolls Royce SILEOT 2 P12 (APRECOT)

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.
