All Nippon Airways Chooses Air BP Turbo Oils for 787 Dreamliner

All Nippon Airways (TYO:9202) today formally agreed to use lubricants made by Air BP for use in their 787 Dreamliner.  ANA is Japan’s largest airliner and Air BP is the specialized aviation division of BP (NYSE:BP), providing fuels, lubricants & services to customers in over 50 countries worldwide.

Lubricants from Air BP will be used in turbines, engines and auxiliary power units for ANA’s Boeing (NYSE:BA) 787 Dreamliner which they took delivery of in September, 2011, and is the first of 55 planes that are scheduled to be built and delivered by Boeing.  Particularly, BP’s “turbo oil” will be employed in the 787 Dreamliner.

Air BP released the following statement regarding today’s announcement, “The 787 Dreamliner is a major step forward and promises to deliver significant performance improvements particularly in the area of fuel efficiency through airframe design and engines utilising advanced technology. BP Turbo Oils are an excellent match for this advanced aircraft and have enabled the designers to maximise the performance of critical components,” said Dr. Andrew Markson, Technology Manager, Air BP Lubricants.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is no stranger to oils made by BP.  In its initial flight, the aircraft used BP Turbo Oils (BPTOs) and also in certification testing.  BP’s Turbo Oil is now approved for commercial use in Boeing’s new aircraft after certification testing.

ANA will use BPTO 2197 for its 787’s Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.  According to BP, BPTO 2197 was the first oil approved as a High Performance Capable oil to the SAE AS5780 specification.  ANA will also use BPTO 2389 for the Hamilton Sundstrand APS5000 Auxiliary Power Units (APU) on-board the 787 Dreamliner.
