PHOENIX MODULAR FACILITIES

Atec’s Phoenix™ Series Modular Test Cells offer all of the functionality of traditional brick and mortar engine test cells with the added benefit of equipment portability. Our portable test cells offer our customers a flexible, low-risk, cost-effective engine test cell facility solution. Site preparation minimization, mobility, resale enhancement and equipment finance are popular advantages of our Phoenix modular cells. Phoenix’ recent selection for significant bizjet and afterburning jet engines applications attests to the new paradigm Atec has created in lean, relocatable test cells.

The customer’s investment can be classified as an equipment purchase or lease versus a fixed realty investment, offering favorable financing, depreciation and resale advantages.

Atec has a Phoenix™ Series Modular Enclosure to meet your needs.

Systems Available:

  • Thrust Cells
