SUSTAINABLE STORY

OUR green technology solves a weight problem and hereby reduces airlines environmental footprint

CTT’s anti-condensation system contributes to make air traveling more sustainable with lowered energy use per flight hours (i.e. cutting fuel burn consumption with 0.4 – 0.6 %) and with less pollutant emissions (i.e. reducing emissions of greenhouse gases). 

The CTT Anti-Condensation system removes trapped water in blankets, keeps the crown area dry and prevents unwanted excess weight from water accumulation. 

POBEDA OPERATES NON-CONDENSING-FLIGHTS ONLY

Pobeda, a low-cost carrier in the Aeroflot group, has fitted CTT’s Anti-Fuselage-Condensation system in in its entire fleet of 34 Next Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

In addition, Pobeda in May 2021 placed a purchase order to retrofit another 10 Boeing 737-800 aircraft that will join its growing fleet in 2021.

“Pobeda has good experience from the CTT Anti-Fuselage-Condensation system.”, says Alexey Yudin Engineering Manager at Pobeda. “We found that the aircraft fuselage and insulation blankets becomes much dryer after installation of CTT Anti-Fuselage-Condensation system . The CTT system is the only active measure to tackle the root-cause of fuselage condensation.”

“We are truly honored that Pobeda repeatedly equip our Anti-Fuselage-Condensation system when adding new aircraft to its growing fleet,” says Peter Landquist, Vice President Senior Advisor Sales. “I believe other airlines will follow Pobeda to moisture protect their fleet; refusing to accept excess weight and unnecessary CO2 emissions. More and more passengers, owners and governments, require actions and measures that 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!”

Transavia Netherlands operating a non-condensing fleet since 2003

Transavia Netherlands has line-fitted anti-condensation in its entire Boeing 737-800 fleet ever since  2008 before that the aircraft was retrofitted. Transavia Netherlands operates a fleet of 41 Boeing 737-800s out of which 39 are equipped with CTT’s Anti-Condensation System.

Transavia Netherlands annually saves unnecessary emissions of CO₂ amounting to approx. 2300mt. That makes a difference. Especially in an industry where every kg counts in its committ to reduce environmental footprint.
