This project facilitated the construction of a new F-111 Jet Engine Test Cell to test jet engines at full after burner thrust prior to return to service after maintenance. The facility included a 30kL Jet Fuel storage tank and constant pressure fuel delivery system to meet stringent performance criteria to supply adequate fuel to the engine at any speed from idle to full after burner.
The project was completed on time and on budget and was notable for achieving all performance criteria under all operating conditions.
TFA performed detailed design including hydraulic analysis, HAZOP leadership, construction inspections, commissioning, operational procedures and maintenance manuals.
