GTRE - Achievements

  • GTRE undertook the development of GTX series of engines with flat rating concept & successfully demonstrated as a first major engine development project.
  • 73 hours of Altitude Testing was conducted at Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM), Russia in 2009-10 and the performance and operability of the engine were verified. 57 hours of Flight Tests were completed in IL-76 aircraft at Russia covering altitude up to 12 km and Mach number 0.7 in 2010-11. More than 3000 hours of testing has been completed at ground and altitude conditions as on date.
  • As a spin-off, a marine version of this engine for the Navy was conceived and the first prototype was successfully integrated and tested at Naval Dockyard, Visakhapatnam.
  • GTRE has designed & developed a Small Turbo Fan Engine (STFE) named Manik, for cruise vehicle application. Prototypes of the engines have been made and tested in GTRE ground test beds demonstrating the thrust and lifting capabilities.
  • More recently GTRE has designed and developed turbocharger for 1500 HP diesel engine used for MBT application. Turbocharger has been tested with a diesel engine to prove the operational capabilities.
