Goliath: World’s Largest Jet Engine Scores GE Aviation’s Largest Deal

image

by GE Reports

GE Aviation received the largest order from an airline in its history for the GE9X, the world’s largest jet engine, at the Dubai Air Show on Sunday. A flock of 450 new GE9X engines, whose front fan is 11 feet in diameter, will power a fleet of next-generation Boeing 777X aircraft ordered by Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways.

The total value of the deal, which also includes service agreements, is $26 billion (list price in U.S. dollars). Emirates alone agreed to purchase 300 GE9X engines, valued at $11 billion, making it the largest order from an airline in GE Aviation’s history.

The GE9X engine, which is still in development, builds on the legacy of the GE90, the world’s most powerful jet engine. The new engines will use advanced parts and materials like 3-D printed fuel nozzles, carbon composite fan blades and heat-resistant ceramic matrix composites inside the high-pressure turbine. The new technologies will make the engine lighter, quieter and more fuel efficient. They will also help reduce emissions.

The Water Eater
by Txchnologist Staff
A GEnx engine is being put through its paces at GE Aviation’s testing site in Peebles, Ohio. This water ingestion test is part of the rigorous testing these amazing machines must go through. The GEnx is installed on Boeing 747s and 787s. Each can produce 53,000-75,000 pounds of thrust.
