Abstract Title:  Vendor days to determine industry interest in modifying three test cells from single engine operation to mulit-engine simultaneous operation:

February 13 -16, 2012  9 am to 11 am and 2 pm to 4 pm

Brief synopsis of potential requirement:  Modify existing three test cells from single engine operation to multi-engine simultaneous operation

   A)  sketches of existing equipment to be provided
   B)  sketches of new equipment to be provided
C)   Here is an initial rough guess of what we anticipate needs to be done (note that cooling air and induction air units are separate units):

1)  replace existing cooling tower for cold weather operations and isolate for TC 4 operations
      2)  new cooling tower(s) for TC2 and TC3
      3)  add hot and cold water tanks or pits and pumps for item 2) above
4)  existing engine air induction conditioning unit for TC3 and 4 to be isolated solely for TC4
      5)  purchase new engine induction air conditioning unit to be used for TC3
6)  remove existing induction air unit AHU1 and consider using existing ductwork for item 5) above
      7)  new engine cooling air unit for TC3 and associated ductwork
      8)  concrete pads/footings, electrical, plumbing for all above
