Baseline Engines

Based on the possibilities of the consortium the two Baseline Engines were selected to serve as validation and demonstration platforms for technologies developed by ESPOSA project. These two platforms were not selected by chance, but with the perspective of usage of technologies developed by ESPOSA for new engines development after the end of ESPOSA project. Engine makers are ready to use all technologies and knowledge gained by ESPOSA to develop and certify engines of similar power range and to provide them for General Aviation sector. The aircraft manufacturers participating in ESPOSA have already expressed interest in having available modern gas turbine propulsion which might be available one or two years after the end of ESPOSA, i.e. in 2015/2016. Technologies of BE2 are also applicable for higher power engine category, i.e. 550-1000 kW.

Baseline Engine “BE1”: 160-180 kW (turboprop/turboshaft)
Baseline Engine “BE2”: 400-470 kW (turboprop/turboshaft)
