AerCap Chooses GEnx Engines to Power 15 Boeing 787


AerCap

AerCap recently selected the innovative GEnx-1B engine to fuel and supply power for the fifteen Boeing 787 Dreamliners. There is also an open option to purchase an extra ten aircrafts. The value for the engine order is estimated to be more than $780 million dollars (list price). This furthers AerCap’s GEnx-powered 787 Dreamliner armada to a solid 49 aircrafts.

Philip Scrugss, who is better known as the President and Chief Commercial Officer of AerCap stated that the company is extremely pleased to be able to supply their customers with the most innovative and modern aeroplanes that are extremely fuel efficient. On behalf of AerCap, Scrugss states that the company looks forward to receiving more 787 Dreamliners that will be supported by the GEnx-1B engine.

Chaker Chahrour, the vice president and general manager of Global Sales and Marketing at GE Aviation believes that AerCap’s order of more GEnx-1B engines supports the engine’s image as being the engine of choice for Boeing 787s. Chahrour talked about the great pride in AerCap’s extensive confidence in the engine line and also looks to the betterment of the relationship between the company’s.

As of late, over sixteen-hundred GEnx-1B engines have been sold to over fifty customers. In comparison to GE’s CF6 engine, the GEnx engine allows for up to fifteen percent better fuel efficiency, which also moves over to fifteen percent less CO2. The experimental twin-annular pre-swirl combustor of the GEnx reduces the Nox gases in a dramatic way (almost fifty-five percent lower than today’s regulatory limits). Based on a ratio of decibels to pounds of thrust, the GEnx engine is the quietest engine produced by GE, which is largely due to the bigger and more efficient fan blades that run at a slower tip speed. This in return results in a forty percent lower level in noise.
