Airbus selects CTT Systems Zonal Drying TM System for Airbus long range aircraft

AIRBUS SELECTS CTT SYSTEMS ZONAL DRYINGtm SYSTEM FOR AIRBUS LONG RANGE AIRCRAFT EADS Airbus has selected a Zonal Dryingtm system for its Airbus long range aircraft family, i.e. all A330 and A340 models. The Zonal Dryingtm system will initially be offered to Airbus customers as an option and especially in combination with a cabin air humidification system. CTT is teamed with Nord-Micro for programme management and providing the system with digital control and monitoring capabilities. Availability of the first system is scheduled for 2002. The Zonal Drying TM System has been in airline operation since 1994 and provides benefits ranging form fuel savings to reduced maintenance costs. - "This is a breakthrough for us," said Torbjörn Johansson, CTT Systems AB president. "We have worked continuously on increasing the awareness of our system and the very good reasons for using dry air in aircraft. Condensation costs the aerospace industry a significant amount of money every year. To have Airbus recognize the system benefits is just great," he added. The CTT Zonal Drying TM System is designed to combat water condensation in the thermal and acoustic insulation of modern passenger aircraft. Airlines can use the Zonal Drying TM System to reduce maintenance costs by increasing the service life of the insulation and realize significant fuel savings by eliminating the non-revenue weight of the accumulated water condensate. By keeping dry the area between the interior trim panels and the aircraft skin, the Zonal Drying TM System also reduces corrosion and the risk of failure of electronic systems and wiring. With the Zonal Comfort TM System, which is based upon the evaporative cooling technique, CTT System is now able to provide the industry with a complete moisture management system. The system provides increased humidity for passengers and crew, in particular on long-haul flights, while at the same time condensation is prevented with the Zonal Drying TM System. To date, CTT has the following additional customers for the Zonal Drying TM system: - Martinair for B767-300 and MD11 - Jet Aviation for Executive aircraft's B767-200, B757-200 and Boeing Business Jet - KLM Royal Dutch Airlines for MD11 and B767 - Austrian Airlines for MD80 - LTU for Airbus A330 - Raytheon Systems Company regarding NASA/DLR SOFIA-project (Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy) - Swissair for MD11 - Sterling European Airlines for Boeing B737-800 - Hapag-Lloyd for Boeing B737-800 - Icelandair for Boeing B757 - Lufthansa CityLine for CRJ 100/200 and for the Zonal Comfort TM System: - SAS for Boeing B767 - Lufthansa Technik for Boeing Business Jet CTT Systems AB is located in Nyköping, Sweden and listed on the OM Stockholm Exchange AB O-list in Stockholm. Nord-Micro, a business unit of Hamilton Sundstrand and headquartered in Frankfurt/Germany, is the world leader in cabin pressure control systems (CPCS) for large commercial aircraft. Nord-Micro supplies systems for nearly the entire Airbus fleet, including all models of the A320 and A330/A340 families.
