Emirates Engine Test Cell is the largest facility of its kind in the Middle East and one of the most modern globally. This state-of-the-art facility built on a 24,000 square meter site, including engine preparation area, covering 3250 square meters dedicated to 6 engine work stations, each served by 30 tone crane. The system is interconnected by monorail with a bridge and turntable which links the preparation area to the test cell chamber, making internal engine movement easier to achieve.

The Engine Test Cell has been built to prepare and test engines with thrust levels of up to 150,000 pounds thrust, far in excess of what manufacturers produce today or are planning for the foreseeable future.

The facility is certified by GCAA, EASA and FAA to test a large spectrum of Jet Engines such as General Electric GE90-115B (B777), Engine Alliance GP7200 (A380), Rolls-Royce Trent 500 (A340-500), Rolls-Royce Trent 700 (A330) and Rolls-Royce Trent 800 (B777); Auxiliary Power Units (APU) Honeywell GTCP331-350 (A330/A340), GTCP331-500 (B777) and GTCP331-600 (A340-500).

The APU Test Cell has been designed and built to test different types of APU’s including the APU installed on the latest A380 Aircraft.

With a capacity to test 300 Engine and APU’s per year - the facility is ideally located and aesthetically-pleasing, environmentally-friendly and efficient test centre was designed to meet all stringent regulations for noise, emissions and waste management, in addition to all safety and environmental requirements.

Emirates Engine Test Cell has set the standards of excellence in the aero engine testing industry by working in collaboration with the most important Engines manufacturer such as Rolls-Royce, General Electric, Engine Alliance and Honeywell to support Emirates fleet’s growing and third party requirements within the region and globally.
