HAECO Engine Services (Xiamen), a member of the HAECO Group has delivered its 700th GE90 engine output. The company also announced the completion of its engine test cell upgrade, marking a significant milestone in the long-term development of HAECO’s engine services.
HAECO Engine Services operates a state-of-the-art engine test cell rated to 150,000 pounds of engine thrust. This is capable of testing GE90 series engines, which are currently the world’s largest commercial aircraft engines in service. To prepare for the future entry of the GE9X series into the market, the company commenced a major modification of its engine test cell in April, introducing various enhancements such as upgrading the intake and exhaust stack to accommodate greater airflow, installing new noise reduction infrastructure, and adding an extra safeguard structure on the thrust stand. Following the modifications, a shakedown test and full correlation test were conducted to correlate the modified engine test cell and confirm its serviceability and accuracy.
