IAE Successfully Tests V2500 Engine with 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Mar 29,2024

IAE International Aero Engines AG (IAE) has announced that it successfully tested the V2500 engine using 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at MTU Maintenance Hannover in Germany.

IAE, a multinational consortium comprised of Pratt & Whitney, Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH, Japanese Aero Engines Corporation and MTU Aero Engines AG, stated that the test demonstrates the V2500 engine¡¯s ability to contribute to making aviation more sustainable in the coming decades.

¡°This test with 100% SAF demonstrates that V2500 engines can continue contributing towards making aviation more sustainable in the decades ahead,¡± said Kim Kinsley, president of IAE AG and vice president of Mature Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney.

The V2500 engine, which currently powers the A320ceo family aircraft and the Embraer C-390 Millenium, was tested using 100% Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosine (HEFA-SPK) fuel supplied by Neste.

HEFA-SPK is produced by hydrotreating renewable raw materials, such as waste oils or fats, into an aviation turbine fuel and is considered a prominent sustainable alternative to conventional jet fuels.

MTU Maintenance Hannover is the first maintenance, repair and overhaul facility worldwide to carry out a 100% SAF test on a V2500 engine, according to Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer at MTU Aero Engines.

¡°This test demonstrates our commitment to supporting greater use of SAF across both our entire network and the broader industry,¡± Schreyögg said.

The V2500 engine offers the most fuel-efficient propulsion system in its class, with up to 3% fuel burn and emissions advantage over prior generation engines, resulting in significant fuel savings and lower emissions.

It is approved for operation on SAF blended at up to 50% with conventional Jet A and A-1 fuel.

There are so much to be discussed and based on this background, the 8th Annual Commercial Aero Engine International Forum will be held in Taicang city of Jiangsu Province, China on April 18th-19th, 2024.

Focusing on cutting-edge technology topics including aero engine design and development, industrial policy and development trend, new energy aviation, new technology and new materials, advanced testing, metrology technology, simulation, parts processing technology, engine maintenance under the background of dual carbon.
Let¡¯s cooperate and work together to contribute to the innovative, efficient and sustainable development of the aviation engine industry while explore the huge potential market in China.
