Testia Signs Memorandum of Understanding on Fluid Testing with Joramco

(Amman, Jordan – 20 October 2021): Joramco, the Amman-based maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) provider and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Testia, an Airbus company, regarding “particle count” testing.

Under this MoU, the two companies will cooperate to establish a fluid testing laboratory at Joramco, which will be specialized in the “particle count” testing of hydraulic fluids as a startup. In addition, Testia will support Joramco with qualified staff to perform the tests and analyze the chemical testing reports.

Cooperation Opportunities in Chemical Testing

The two companies will explore the opportunities of further cooperation in areas of mutual interest in chemical testing such as fuel, engine oil and water.
Fraser Currie, CEO of Joramco, stated that: “Our agreement with Testia will expand Joramco’s technical capability to provide testing on hydraulic fluids using the latest testing equipment, and it confirms our position as a leading MRO service provider up to world-class standards.”

Testia CEO David Rottembourg added: “Through our extensive expertise in the field, we at Testia are delighted to support Joramco in setting up their own capacity in fluids testing. Beyond the traditional safety and performance assurance, the increased focus on sanitary measures and the rise in the usage of biofuel in aerospace are rendering this competence key to MROs worldwide.”
