Turkish Airlines selects GEnx engines GE Aviation’s GEnx-1B engines will power the 25 Boeing 787 Dreamliners (and five options) that Turkish Airlines ordered in March.

The airline also signed a 15-year TrueChoice Flight Hour agreement with GE for maintenance, repair and overhaul of the engines.

GE Aviation has sold more than 2,000 GEnx engines in less than 15 years since launching the programme, making the GEnx the fastest-selling high-thrust engine in the company’s history(www.geaviation.co.uk).

Featuring advanced technologies and materials, it is said to have the lowest fuel burn and the longest range capability of any engine available on the 787 aircraft.

The GEnx’s lean-burning twin-annular pre-swirl (TAPS) combustor is designed to significantly reduces NOx and other regulated gases below current regulatory limits; the GEnx is also the world’s first commercial engine with both a carbon fibre composite front fan case and fan blades.

The GEnx engine has significant ties with Turkey’s aviation industry. The Turkey Technology Center in Gebze, along with its 400 engineers, helped to design the GEnx engine, as well as other commercial, military and industrial engines.

TUSAS Engine Industries Inc, which was founded 33 years ago and in which GE holds a 46% share, manufactures some 40 GEnx components.

GEnx’s revenue-sharing participants are IHI Corporation (Japan), GKN Aerospace Engine Systems (the UK), MTU (Germany), TechSpace Aero (Safran — Belgium), Safran Aircraft Engines (France) and Samsung Techwin (Korea).
