Atec, Inc. to supply Phoenix Series 250 Modular Test Facilities to Rolls Royce

Atec, Inc., a Texas-based provider of test systems and equipment for turbine engines, announced the award from Rolls-Royce of two Phoenix Series 250 Modular Test Facilities. The test cells will be supplied turnkey to the Rolls-Royce engine center in Indianapolis, Indiana, to test all versions of the Model 250 engine.

"This is an exciting time for us. We have the opportunity to supply a turboshaft test cell for one of the world's leading engine manufacturers. Plus, we get to launch a new product line - Atec's Phoenix Series Test Facilities. We've recently kicked-off the project with a planning meeting at Rolls-Royce's Indianapolis facility, and we were very pleased with the discussions," said Paul Fenley, Vice President of Atec.

This project marks the launch of Atec's Phoenix Series Modular Test Facilities, a containerized test cell enclosure fully equipped with all engine support systems - load absorption, fuel, air, oil, fire suppression and Atec's ADAQ data acquisition and PLC control systems. While both water and air-brake load options are offered, Atec has developed an innovative dynamometer system using an electric regenerative dynamometer. This dynamometer is a cleaner alternative than traditional systems, and it offers full range power absorption without the need of a gearbox, in most applications. The Phoenix Series Modular Test Facility offers the ideal solution for turboshaft and low thrust turbofan engine test requirements providing all the functionality of a traditional engine test cell with the benefits of mobility. Rolls-Royce is a leading power-systems company in civil and defense aerospace, marine and energy markets. They have one of the broadest turboshaft engine families available in the world, with a power range stretching from 420 shaft horsepower to more than 6,000shp. The Rolls-Royce Model 250 family of light turboshaft and turboprop engines has recently logged its 170 millionth flight hour, and continues to secure new applications.

Atec, Inc., is a 50-year-old engineering and manufacturing services company that specializes in turnkey system solutions for aerospace and energy clients worldwide. Atec is a recognized leader in military and commercial engine test facility upgrades and modifications for all engine types: turboshaft, turboprop and turbofan.
