"Prior to using EcoPower engine wash, we used the conventional shepherd's hook method to wash our engines," said Simon Mermod, Wizz Air powerplant manager. "We switched to Pratt & Whitney's EcoPower Engine Wash service because we recognized the operational, environmental and cost benefits it offers. With EcoPower Engine Wash, we anticipate a considerable reduction in our fuel burn while contributing to a cleaner environment."
"We are excited to provide Wizz Air with a faster, more effective and environmentally sound solution for washing their aircraft engines," Lou Quattrocchi, Pratt & Whitney Product Line Management vice president, said. "By using only pure atomized water, EcoPower Engine Wash provides a more thorough cleaning than conventional engine washing methods."
