General Electric: GEnx Test Cell Upgrade

ASE AeroSystems redesigned a 30-year-old test cell from a dual-inlet to single-inlet configuration at the GE Caledonian test facility in Prestwick, UK, as a means of elevating aerodynamic and acoustic performance to the levels necessary for testing GEnx Engines.

Extensive airflow analysis determined the redesign requirements of the program, for which ASE AeroSystems was responsible for complete design and supplying of required systems. Most notably, ASE AeroSystems also supplied the first GEnx adapters in the market for overhaul testing purposes.
