Royal Air Maroc Takes-Off with a Quieter, More Fuel-Efficient Engine
Royal Air Maroc has just received its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner, powered by GE’s new GEnx-1B engine. The GEnx offers a number of environmental and performance benefits, and is one of GE’s most advanced technologies.
This engine provides up to 15% lower CO2 emissions, 15% less fuel consumption, and reductions in NOx gases that are as much as 55% lower than today’s regulatory limits. It even runs more quietly, resulting in about 40% lower noise levels and enhanced passenger comfort.
The GEnx is part of GE’s Ecomagination product portfolio, a collection of GE’s efficiency-focused technologies that enhance customers’ environmental and operating performance.
The just-delivered airplane is the first of five Dreamliners — all with GEnx-1B engines — to be delivered to Royal Air Maroc, the largest airline in Morocco. The airline also selected a 10-year OnPoint solution agreement with GE Aviation for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of its GEnx engine fleet.
More than 1,200 GEnx-1Bs have been sold so far, and the GEnx family has more than 1,600 engines on order, making it the fastest-selling aircraft engine in GE history. The GEnx has performed extremely well over the last two years of service, with outstanding fuel burn and reliability.
