Royal Air Maroc Selects GEnx Engines to Power Additional Boeing 787 Dreamliners

12/27/2017

CASABLANCA, Morocco -- Royal Air Maroc (RAM) chose the GEnx-1B engine to power its two additional Boeing 787 Dreamliners. This order brings the airline’s GEnx-powered 787 Dreamliner fleet to seven aircraft. The engine order is valued at more than $100 million (USD) list price. 

“RAM’s order for additional GEnx-1B engines demonstrates the airline’s confidence and trust in the engine,” said Chaker Chahrour, vice president and general manager of Global Sales and Marketing for GE Aviation. “GE Aviation and RAM have forged a strong relationship, and we are very proud to provide the engine power for the airline’s growth plans.” 

More than 1,600 GEnx-1B engines have been sold to more than 50 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. 

GEnx’s revenue-sharing participants are IHI Corporation of Japan, Volvo Aero of Sweden, MTU of Germany, TechSpace Aero (Safran) of Belgium, Safran Aircraft Engines of France and Samsung Techwin of Korea. 

Headquartered in Casablanca, Royal Air Maroc operates a young fleet of aircraft to more than 90 destinations in Europe, North America, South America, North Africa, Africa, and the Middle East.
