The success story continues: Lufthansa Technik AG has acquired two
new customers for its innovative Cyclean® Engine Wash product,
Solaseed Air in Tokyo, Japan and an unnamed customer. The contract in
force for Lufthansa Technik's first Japanese customer since 2012 with
Peach Aviation of Osaka, Japan has also been extended by a further
three years to 2020 for the entire A320 fleet.
As of summer 2017, the CFM56-7B engines on the Boeing 737 fleet of
Solaseed Air are being washed at Tokyo-Haneda airport.
"For us, the performance of the engines, protecting the environment
by reducing CO2 emissions, and cost savings from extended on-wing
time and fuel flow reduction are foremost considerations. These
arguments have also convinced our Japanese airline customers," says
Oliver C. Winter, Head of Engine Life Cycle Services at Lufthansa
Lufthansa Technik has now placed Cyclean® Engine Wash units at the
Japanes sites Tokyo-Haneda, Tokyo-Narita, Osaka/Kansai and
Cyclean® Engine Wash can be carried out as part of maintenance work,
in the transit period between two flights, or overnight. It is up to
70 per cent quicker than convention engine cleaning methods and can
be carried out anywhere on the airport site. Cyclean® Engine Wash is
available for all modern engine models from the major manufacturers
General Electric, Rolls-Royce, Pratt & Whitney, CFMI and IAE.
To date, more than 80,000 engine washes have been performed worldwide
for more than 60 airline customers using Cyclean® Engine Wash.
