Parker Aerospace to provide hydraulic pump for Emirates’s B777X aircraft
December 27, 2017: Parker Aerospace, a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation and the global leader in motion and control technologies has signed a pump call-out agreement with Emirates for its twin-engine jet Boeing 777X aircraft.
According to reports, Emirates is the launch customer of the new Boeing aircraft with an order book of 150 B777X%u2014one of the single largest aircraft orders by value in the history of US commercial aviation.
Parker is expected to provide the hydraulic engine-driven pump and AC motor pump on the fleet of B777X wide-body airplanes.
Emirates, currently the largest operator of the Boeing 777 aircraft expects to take delivery of the first B777X in 2020, said sources.
Parker Aerospace pumps offer a weight advantage, based on a design that utilises material and manufacturing methods to reduce pump weight.
For airline operators, this weight savings means the airplane has less mass to move. As a result, the aircraft burns less fuel, provides fuel savings over time, and creates fewer emissions.
'We are pleased to receive this order from Emirates,' said Greg Norris, business unit director, EMEA region of Parker's customer support operations (CSO).
'Our organizations have a good relationship that continues to grow and strengthen. Emirates' choice reflects our belief that Parker's engineering expertise and processes result in better products that outperform the competition,' said Norris.
