Canadian MRO Vector Aerospace has unveiled a new engine test cell at its Summerside facility in Prince Edward Island to support turboprop engines producing up to 5,000 shaft horsepower.

Vector said that the new centre will expand its local test capacity on turboprop models supported from the facility, including the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A and PW100 series, and help minimise turn-around times for customers.

It joins three existing test stands at Summerside, two dedicated to turboprops and one to turbofans.

“This new test cell will dovetail well with our existing test stands at our world-class Summerside facility,” said Jeff Poirier, president of Vector’s engine services – Atlantic division.
