EU technology programme ENOVAL launched

The European Union's new technology programme ENOVAL (ENgine mOdule VALidators) has been launched. Recently more than 140 representatives from the aerospace industry, from research and academic institutions as well as from the European Commission came together in Freising, near Munich, to kick-off the programme. In this project, which is led by MTU Aero Engines, 35 European partners are jointly developing new technologies for medium-sized, large and very large turbofan aero engines. The aim is to achieve reductions in CO2 emissions of up to five percent and in noise of up to 1.3 decibels.

ENOVAL will provide new technologies for the low pressure system of ultra-high by-pass ratio propulsion systems (12

ENOVAL, which is set up within the Seventh Framework Programme and co-funded by the European Commission with € 26.5 million, will run for four years. With a gross budget of more than € 45 million, the project will provide novel technologies for fan, gearbox, low-pressure compressor and turbine modules to achieve or even surpass CO2 and noise level targets set by ACARE and the European Commission's Vision for Aviation – Flightpath 2050. Major players from the European aero engine industry – including Avio Aero, GKN Aerospace, Industria de Turbo Propulsores, MTU, Rolls-Royce, Snecma, Techspace Aero and Turbomeca – cooperate in ENOVAL with SMEs from the aeronautics sector and academic and research organizations.

The engine sector has already successfully demonstrated its innovation potential by achieving breakthroughs in past and ongoing R&T projects such as VITAL, NEWAC, Dream, LEMCOTEC and E-BREAK.
