The nozzles will be designed and produced by the company's Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Division in Andover, Ohio, and the pumps by the Nichols Aircraft Division in Ayer, Massachusetts.

Rolls-Royce has projected that up to 3,000 engines will be built through to the year 2020.

Each engine requires 20 nozzles and one pump.
