SIA Engineering Company Limited (SIAEC) has conducted a successful engine test using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The tests, conducted on a Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine using 38 per cent blended SAF, produced 32 per cent lower carbon emissions compared to conventional fossil jet fuel, according to SIAEC.
SIAEC’s chief executive officer Ng Chin Hwee said: “As SIAEC grows its engine services business, we recognise the importance of mitigating potential impact to the environment.
“The successful trial using blended SAF at our engine test facility marks SIAEC’s capability and readiness to support the aviation industry towards the net zero carbon emissions goal.”
Rolls-Royce’s services director of civil aerospace Dominic Horwood added: “Decarbonising complex, critical aviation systems requires deep collaboration amongst sector players, and Rolls-Royce is pleased to support the SAF trial by SIAEC and SAESL.
“The successful testing of blended SAF on our Trent 900 engine by SIAEC is an important milestone in accelerating the adoption of SAF in MRO services across the Asia-Pacific region, enabling our partners and customers in the transition to low-carbon aviation.”
