GTF Engines Achieve Milestone Fuel and Emissions Savings

Our Bureau - : Jan 11, 2023 - : 11:13 pm

Since its entry into service, Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engines has saved 1 billion gallons (nearly 4 billion liters) of fuel and 10 million metric tons of carbon emissions.

In 2022, the company improved on the GTF engine’s best-in-class fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions for the A320neo family. It also successfully tested the more powerful GTF Advantage engine on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), started engine certification testing and worked with Airbus to begin development flight testing on an A320neo aircraft.

Last year, Pratt & Whitney also announced plans to enhance its geared fan architecture with hybrid-electric systems and water-enhanced turbine technology through the SWITCH collaboration with Airbus, MTU Aero Engines, Collins Aerospace and GKN Aerospace. The program, coupled with recent FAA CLEEN III and NASA HyTEC awards, demonstrates the company’s commitment to sustainable propulsion.

“We’re the only engine company with a geared fan in commercial service,” said Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney. “With the GTF Advantage engine and these key technology development programs, our revolutionary architecture is at the heart of sustainable propulsion today and into the future.”

In 2022, the company announced more than 1,100 GTF engine orders and commitments, while more than 1,400 aircraft have now been delivered to 64 operators. To support the growing fleet, it also announced the expansion of the GTF MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) network to include Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance, Iberia Maintenance and SR Technics.

“GTF engines continue to deliver lower operational costs for our customers; new routes and revenue potential for airlines, airports and communities; and big savings in noise and emissions for passengers and our planet,” said Deurloo.
