Qatar Airways First to Use GE's New Foam Wash Engine Cleaning System

Qatar Airways has become the first airline in the world to use the ‘GE360 Foam Wash’ system after partnering with GE on a three-year trial of the innovative enhanced engine cleaning technology.

The state-of-the-art technology eplaces the traditional water wash method to improve engine performance, fuel efficiency and reduce maintenance frequency on GE engine models.

The GE360 Foam Wash system works by injecting a heated detergent solution, specially-formulated to dissolve dust and dirt particles from the engine gas path.

 Unlike traditional water wash systems the GE360 Foam Wash is a self-contained system, which allows it to be used inside maintenance facilities and is also friendly to the environment.

Qatar Airways Chief Technical Officer, Mr. Anthony Lowery, said, “As the first and only airline in the world to receive a licence to operate the GE360 Foam Wash system to date, we are at the forefront of innovation in aircraft maintenance. We look forward to continuing our partnership with General Electric on this and future projects, to further position Qatar Airways as a leader in the field of aircraft maintenance.”
