Doha: Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive and Secretary-General of Qatar National Tourism Council, Akbar Al Baker, has announced the launch of a “revolutionary” new engine-cleaning system, developed in partnership with GE, one of QSTP’s international partner companies. 

Akbar Al Baker made the announcement yesterday night while attending the ‘Catalyzing The Future’ celebration of the 10th anniversary of Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP). QSTP, which hosted the event, has become a national and regional hub of technology innovation and development since its establishment by QF 10 years ago.

Qatar Airways will be the first airline in the world to use the GE360 Foam Wash, which will improve engine performance and fuel efficiency, reduce maintenance demands, and use 40 percent less water.

“QSTP’s role as an incubator of research and development, and a nourisher of an innovation ecosystem has been at the core of our advancements,” he said. 

 

“QSTP has paved the way and built an international hub that connected us with world-renowned high-tech businesses, supporting us as we strive toward revolutionising products in the aviation industry,” Al Baker added. 

"Moving forward, we anticipate working even more closely with QSTP and GE as we continue to revolutionize technology in the aviation industry and setting a new benchmark for innovation within the upcoming decade. A new journey to the future of research and development has begun, and I am delighted that Qatar Airways is part of it,” he further said.

David L. Joyce, Vice Chair of GE and President and CEO of GE Aviation, described QSTP – home to GE’s Advanced Technology & Research Center since 2011 – as having made “incredible progress in a decade”, saying: “It is visionary, setting a goal and inspiring others to join it on the journey; it is collaborative, working across boundaries to unlock collective intellect; and it is innovative, with forward-thinking, groundbreaking, and sustainable technology being developed.”
