GE (NYSE:GE), which bases its Transportation division in Evendale, said Qatar Airways placed a $1.6 billion order for its new GEnx engines. The order is the largest single purchase for the GEnx engine, which is still under development.

The GEnx engines will power 60 Airbus A350 aircraft, which will be delivered in 2010. The aircraft order is part of Qatar Airways' plan to expand its route structure, according to a news release. The airline already serves 65 destinations throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

GE also announced a $750 million engine order from AirAsia. The low-fare airline picked the CFM56-5B engine to power its order of Airbus A320 aircraft; AirAsia placed 60 firm orders, with options for 40 more aircraft. The engines to power the fleet are produced by CFM International, a 50-50 joint venture between GE and Snecma Moteurs of France.

The firm orders for AirAsia aircraft are expected to be delivered in December, according to a news release.

Hmm, it's ironic that the leading engine on the 'European' A350 is from GE, whereas the leading engine on the 'American' 787 is from RR!

Uhh wrong,
There is no engine of choice for the 787. Airlines have a choice of either the RR Trent or GE GENx. In fact the 747ADV will be powered by the GENx.



That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

I really don't think it matters. Both GE and RR are multinational operations, with major operations and plants in many countries.

GE have now consolidated their position, which unfortunately Pratt and Whitney has lost due to some major product failures. It's great to see GE do well but also sad that PW isn't the force it once was with their all-conquering JT3, JT8D and JT9D engines.

What? He said the leading engine on the 787 is the RR, which is a correct statement.

Thanks for clearing that up for us...! confused

That is correct! Rolls-Royce bought out Allison Engines here in the USA, and GE has closely partnered with SNECMA in France on a number of commercial engine projects--including the ground-breaking CFM56 engine, perhaps the most successful high-bypass turbofan engine every built.

I think the first GENx engine (which I hope will be designated GE80) should be running some time early in 2006.

Soon? Look at their market reach. How many people use GE products and services every day? A lot.

GE is a huge player in the world market because when it comes to power generation, they are among the biggest companies on Earth, period.

GE's experience with turbine technology dates from the beginning of the 20th Century when they built water turbines for power generation; that's why GE was picked by the British to build the very first jet engines in the USA. GE's success for jet engines really took off in the late 1960's, when the TF39 engine for the C-5A Galaxy was derived into the highly successful CF6 engine; later, the original F101 engine for the B-1 bomber got derived into the later F101 models for the F-14, F-15 and F-16 fighters and the F101 engine core became the basis of the world's most successful high-bypass turbofan engine, the CFM56. More recently, the GE90 engine became a major success on the Boeing 777, and GE90 technology was used on the Engine Alliance GP7270 engine and will form the basis for the GENx engine used on the 787 and A350.  Smile

Great new for GE, Qatar Airways already has a large GE powered A330 fleet!

Did QR choose the RR Trent 900's or the GE/PW GP7000's on their A380's?

Rob!

They still haven't decided. (Well, if they have, they haven't announced it yet.) Their big GE A330 and A350 fleets would suggest that the Alliance has the edge. Their narrowbody Airbuses have IAE if that makes any difference.
