With our aero engine test experience and driveline and controls background, we have developed an extensive array of innovative designs for industrial and marine gas turbine engine testing. We recognize the value in limiting cell time to test time, so we designed our solutions to maximize facility efficiency and minimize operating costs. Our Project Spotlights are a snapshot of what we can do for your facility.
Industrial & Marine Portfolio
65 MW Industrial Development Test Facility
Complete turnkey conversion of an existing Aero Engine Test Cell to accommodate the development and production testing of the Industrial Trent aero derivative gas turbine engine.
60 MW Marine Test Facility
MDS provided the turnkey supply of an inlet air heating system for a Marine Gas Turbine Engine Test facility. The system recycles heat dissipated by the facility loadbank system and extracts hot air from the loadbanks without creating any additional backpressure that could reduce performance.
55 MW Industrial & Marine Test Facility
MDS converted this facility, which was designed for a production environment, from a turbojet test cell to a post overhaul test facility for industrial and marine gas turbine testing.
17 MW Industrial Test Facility
Complete turnkey design and supply of an Industrial Engine Test Berth. MDS worked with Siemens, in a phased approach, to first develop facility and test system specifications to meet rigorous requirements, develop efficient solutions, and provide value added costing to execute the agreed solutions. The facility incorporates state of the art MDS technology in the areas of engine handling and data acquisition to meet aggressive 72 hour engine turn around targets.
5 MW Industrial Test Facility
The new test facility is capable of testing both single shaft and geared compressors with up to six individual stages along with complete compressor packages. Compressors can be tested in both open loop and closed loop configuration.
