“This investment is in line with our continuous effort to lower the environmental impact of our operation. We have set a target to lower the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 6% within three years. We choose to invest in the Zonal Drying™ Systems to eliminate the unwanted extra weight from condensed water in aircraft and at the same time to improve cabin air quality”, says Nova Airlines Managing Director, Anders Fred. “We are very proud to add Nova Airlines to our growing list of Zonal Drying™ System customers. With its high utilization and high load factors, Nova Airlines should be able to capture in full all the benefits of our system and we are pleased to be able to help Nova Airlines to save fuel and lower their emissions”, comments CTT’s VP Sales & Marketing Ulf Liljenberg on today’s order. By eliminating condensation in the aircraft both operational and maintenance costs will be lowered through: • lowered fuel consumption (i.e. lower aircraft weight due to elimination of accumulated water), • improved operational reliability (i.e. less corrective maintenance) • consistent insulation performance (i.e. water reduces insulation performance), Further, the aircraft residual value will be protected or even improved due to reduced corrosive impact over the years. Reduced fuel burn (due to lowered aircraft weight) also has a positive impact on the environment. CTT’s Zonal Drying™ System has been selected as basic equipment for the new B787 “Dreamliner” and CTT’s humidifiers are options in crew rest compartments and on flight deck. The A380 offers CTT’s humidifiers as option in crew rest compartments. CTT will also supply the Zonal Drying™ system and Humidifiers for the A350 aircraft, as options. A350 will have the Cair™ system, humidification for flight deck, cabin crew rest and specific parts of the passenger cabin available as options. This is the first time an aircraft manufacturer offers humidification for the passenger area.
