In order to face up to the important challenges facing the aeronautical industry, ITP Aero operates with a strategy that will enable it to successfully meet present and future needs in a more efficient and sustainable way.
To this end, the company is firmly committed to the development of its own technology that will lay the foundations for hybrid and hydrogen-based propulsion systems. With an eye on the near future, it is working intensively on numerous incremental improvements to its existing products and the design and production of new engine architectures that contribute to reducing the environmental impact of air transport.
Among them is the current programme - the design, production, assembly, and delivery of hardware to Rolls-Royce as part of their UltraFan® programme. The products delivered by ITP Aero will be central to this new generation of engines, which will contribute to the decarbonisation of the aviation sector, being capable of running on 100% sustainable fuel, and in time, green hydrogen. These sustainable engines will enable a substantial reduction in specific fuel consumption of 25% compared to traditional engines, and 10% compared to today’s state-of-the-art technology. This remarkable improvement in efficiency is a major leap forward compared to current technology and is shaping up to be a real game changer; a paradigm shift in the aviation sector.
Weight and noise will reduce significantly in this new model, as it is manufactured with lighter composite materials, minimising perceived noise by 65%, in line with the industry's sustainability goals.
