GE Assists Emirates in Construction of New Jet Engine Test Facility

The facility was designed in co-operation with GE with a capability unique to the Middle East region.

The facility will house a 13-meter cross-section turbofan engine test cell and an auxiliary power unit test cell and will be capable of testing aircraft engines with up to 150,000 pounds of thrust.

The test facility will test a large variety of turbofan engines and auxiliary power units, such as the Engine Alliance* GP7200 (Emirates will operate about 200 of these engines), GE90-115B engine (Emirates will operate 60 of these engines), as well as Rolls-Royce Trent 500, 700 and 800 engine series and the Honeywell GTCP331-350, GTPC331-500 and GTPC331-600 auxiliary power units.
