The Engine Alliance was first established in 2004 by the Renault-Nissan alliance. This collaboration between these two automobile manufacturers has been a powerhouse for the industry.
Especially as of recent with the emergence of The Engine Alliance, and its substantial share in the world’s passenger car production.
In addition to collaborating on engines, the companies have also joined forces to create new platforms. These platforms have made all of their cars more fuel-efficient, with an increase in horsepower and performance. Today, we are going to be looking at how The Engine Alliance is shaping up to be one of the most important collaborations in history.

Engine Alliance – GP7200
The GP7200 engines use lessons learned from over 25 million flight hours of successful operations with these legacy engines and use new technologies to create the quietest and most fuel-efficient engine for the A380 and Airbus A380 aircraft.
The GP7200 utilizes the latest proven technology from each program and incorporates lessons learned from over 25 million flight hours of safe operation of both engines.
Engine Alliance The GP7200 engine has proven to be unique in its field and then amazingly maintains its position as the quietest, most fuel-efficient engine, most reliable, and then storage operator over $1 million in aircraft fuel annually.
The Engine Alliance added that its GP7200 engine provides the lowest fuel consumption for its flagship A380 superjumbo jet. Airbus advertises the relative fuel efficiency of its A380 Superjumbo Admiral and A380 SuperJumbo Admiral.
Engine cores are assembled at the GE Aviation facility in Durham, North Carolina, with the final assembly taking place at the Pratt & Whitneys facility in Middletown, Connecticut.
MTU Aero Engines is the main upgrade partner with a 22.5% share. It was selected at the Dubai Air Show under a 2002 Emirates agreement to purchase GP7200 engines for an initial order for 22 A380s.
The main challenge was to maintain the perception that the GP7200 is the “most innovative engine option” for the A380. The Rolls-Royce Trent 900 rival was named the flagship engine for the then A3XX in 1996 and was initially chosen by nearly all Airbus A380 customers.
Engine Alliance was founded in August 1996 to develop, manufacture, market, and support a family of aircraft engines for new heavy-lift and long-range aircraft.
In recent days, Abu Dhabi Airways are planning to purchase GP7200 and a long-term fleet management agreement for GP7200 engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul.
