Dulsco People and Assured Aviation Services initiative saved 1.5 million litres in under two years
Dubai-based Dulsco Group has partnered with Assured Aviation Services to deliver a sustainable servicing initiative for aircrafts, introducing an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional wet washing techniques to the UAE aviation sector.
Dulsco is integrating Assured's dry washing technology to efficiently eliminate dirt, grease and debris from aircraft, buses, tugs and other equipment, ensuring minimal disruption in busy airport environments.
Dry washing can be performed in various locations and can be used for a comprehensive exterior aircraft wash during maintenance downtime, all without the necessity of a dirty water drainage system.
This flexibility empowers airlines to maintain the appearance of their aircraft, even during on-line parking.
A study conducted by a UAE-based carrier revealed that dry washing a fleet of 260 aircraft saved more than 11 million litres of fresh water in a single year compared to wet washing.
Assured Aviation has saved more than 1.5 million litres of water in less than 20 months through the adoption of the dry wash process.
Dulsco People COO Antony Marke said: “In our pursuit of sustainability, we leave no stone unturned, keeping both the environment and our clients at the forefront of every solution.
"Our global partnerships strengthen our commitment to excellence, allowing us to enhance our capabilities for our valued clients. As we join hands with Assured Aviation, we are not only promoting sustainable aircraft and airside vehicle maintenance but also championing environmental responsibility in the aviation industry."
