    Makila Engine Testing Stand in Norway

    Heli-One, January 30, 2020 - Heli-One, a leading provider of helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services, has opened a new engine test stand at their Stavanger, Norway location.

    This test stand features state-of-the-art technology that reduces testing times through automation and upgraded equipment. The stand supports the facility’s engine shop servicing the Safran Makila 1A engine variant.

    Designed in close collaboration with Safran Helicopter Engines, the test stand features major advances in testing and safety technology. Test data reporting is now automated, facilitating faster and more informed maintenance decisions leading to lower overall project times.

    Based on testing performance and analytics, calibration adjustments to the engine can be made on the stand immediately. The test stand can process two engines in one working day, leading to faster turnaround times for a customer’s overhauled unit.

This test stand not only features modern data analytics but new safety features to keep our team, equipment, and engines safe in testing scenarios,” said Christian Drouin, Vice President Heli-One.
