S7 Technics Holding adds engine wash capability
S7 Technics Holding continues to expand aircraft engine capabilities on offer. The company’s Moscow Domodedovo-based station has recently launched Cyclean® engine washing, a new service, unprecedented and unrivaled in Russia
The cleaning technology developed by Lufthansa Technik allows for safe and efficient core engine wash.
The advantages of Cyclean® system and related procedures over conventional engine wash operations include reduced time, unparalleled flexibility, faster and simple preparation procedures and easy handling.
“Regular engine wash results in significant increase of its operating time until it reaches the point when EGT (exhaust gas temperature) Margin deteriorates down to zero and the engine requires a shop visit. It also tangibly improves fuel efficiency, reducing fuel burn by up to 1 per cent, which is vital for airlines now when fuel prices tend to spike,” comments Nikita Babkin, S7 Technics Director, Engine Services.
Cyclean® is universal and may be used even on new generation engines such as PW1100G-JM and LEAP-1B and 1A. S7 Technics also offers the service for CFM56-5A/5B/7B, CF34-8 and V2500. For most engine types the engine run-up after Cyclean® water wash is not required. Technical features of this system provide possibility to perform washes up to -10° C.
“At present we work with seven engine types, which our main customers either operate or plan to start operating in the near future. S7 Technics is able to build up additional capability for other engine types within shortest time frame, including those which power widebody aircraft A330, Boeing 747 / 767/ 777 and others” Babkin adds.
The engine wash service may be ordered separately or as part of the aircraft maintenance. S7 Technics is able to offer the service to other airlines at Domodedovo Airport potentially offering the service at other Moscow airports in the near future.
