NEW YORK - Uzbekistan Airways has selected GEnx-1B engines to power four new Boeing 787-8 widebody airliners. The engine order is valued at more than $230 million, including a custom-ordered spare engine. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2018.

GE awarded Uzbekistan Airways its TRUEngine designation for the entire GEnx fleet. The companies also agreed to promptly enter discussions to execute a mutually agreed TrueChoice agreement for the GEnx-1B engines.

In 2016, Uzbekistan Airways accepted delivery of Central Asia’s first Boeing 787 Dreamliner powered by GEnx-1B engines. The aircraft was the first passenger airliner based in Uzbekistan to be equipped with GE Aviation engines.

More than 1,600 GEnx-1B engines have been sold to 51 customers. Compared to GE's CF6 engine, the GEnx engine offers up to 15 percent better fuel efficiency, which translates to 15 percent less CO2. The GEnx's innovative twin-annular pre-swirl (TAPS) combustor dramatically reduces NOx gases as much as 55 percent below today's regulatory limits and other regulated gases as much as 90 percent.

Based on the ratio of decibels to pounds of thrust, the GEnx is the quietest engine GE produces due to the large, more efficient fan blades that operate at slower tip speed, resulting in about 40 percent lower noise levels.

SEATTLE - Boeing and Japan Airlines (JAL) announced an order for four 787-8 Dreamliners. The order, previously attributed to an unidentified customer on the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website, is valued at more than $900 million at current list prices and will expand JAL's Dreamliner fleet to 49 airplanes.

"This order for additional 787 Dreamliners, is a key part of our strategy as we look to bolster our existing route network and strengthen our position ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo," said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines. "The superior noise performance of the 787 will play a critical role in meeting our commitment for quieter operations within our domestic network going forward."

Japan Airlines currently operates the second largest 787 Dreamliner fleet in the world, with 34 airplanes. The carrier is expected to receive its 35th Dreamliner, a 787-9 later this week. With this new order, Japan Airlines' 787 fleet include 29 787-8s and 20 787-9 airplanes.

Japan Airlines became the first airline in the world to take delivery of a 787 powered by fuel-efficient General Electric GEnx engines in 2012. In addition, JAL was one of the first airlines to launch new routes with the 787, as it launched its Boston and San Diego routes with the Dreamliner that same year.

The 787 Dreamliner family is being operated on more than 530 routes, with 150 brand new nonstop routes planned or in service since the airplane began commercial service in 2011. To date, 69 customers worldwide have placed orders for 1,278 airplanes.

SHANGHAI, China - The United Engine Corporation (UEC), a part of Russia's Rostec State Corporation, has signed a memorandum of understanding with China's AECC Commercial Aircraft Engine Co., Ltd. (AECC CAE) covering a potential deal to develop a new engine to power a widebody airliner.

Under the memorandum, the primary objectives of the program for creating an engine for the LRWBA will include engaging in joint research and competitive analysis, defining the potential customers' requirements to the engine, forming the appearance of the engine, and determining its basic technical parameters.

"Our ultimate goal is the creation of our own powerful world-class engine certified in accordance with the highest international standards," said Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec State Corporation.

UEC has previously tried to develop a high-thrust civil engine, the PD-35, for prospective wide-body long-haul aircraft. There is currently research and development groundwork under way under the PD-35 program in order to bring the degree of its development up to a level that will allow implementing research and development work as a whole with minimal technical risk.

AECC CAE is part of the Aero Engine Corporation of China, created in 2016, and is engaged in the development, manufacture and maintenance of civil gas turbine engines. The UEC is working closely with AECC and its divisions.

UEC plans to start engine testing in 2022 and achieve certification in 2027.
