CTT receives Anti-Fuselage-Condensation order from undisclosed airline to moisture protect four Airbus A321 aircraft
CTT SYSTEMS AB (“CTT”), the market leader of aircraft humidity control systems, announces undisclosed airline order to retrofit the CTT Anti-Fuselage-Condensation-system in four Airbus A321 aircraft.
The CTT Anti-Fuselage-Condensation system removes trapped water in blankets, keeps the crown area dry and prevents unwanted excess weight from water accumulation. Hereby, on every flight, airlines can operate with lower energy needs and less pollutant emissions.
“Weight-saving actions and measures are a top-priority for all airlines. CTT is the only supplier of a system that tackles the root-cause of fuselage condensation issues and eliminates related weight gain," says Peter Landquist, Vice President Senior Advisor Sales. "I recognize growing interest from airlines that do not accept to operate with excess weight from moisture build-up in the fuselage. The sustainability benefits of our system also appeal to airline stakeholders, such as passengers, owners and politicians (especially those with financial support to airlines), that require airlines take all actions and measures available in order to reduce CO2 emissions. During my long career at CTT, a kilogram of less excess weight onboard has never been “worth more” than it is today. Every kilogram counts!"
A 300 kg weight reduction on the Airbus A321 aircraft generates the following advantages:
- Reducing fuel burn with estimated 0.6% and
- Cutting CO2 emissions with approx. 95 tons per aircraft per year with fuel savings of approx. 38,000 liters per year;
- Higher operational reliability from significantly lowered moisture related faults in electrical equipment (reduced Out-Of-Service time and repair costs),
- Lower rate of insulation blanket replacement.
