Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide
range of industries around the world, is expanding its global network of
AeroCHECK laboratories into the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE is a
major and growing aviation hub for the Gulf and the Middle Eastern
region. The AeroCHECK service provided by Intertek’s Sharjah, UAE
laboratory supports the increasing demands of the aviation industry for
quality testing and complex investigative analysis.
AeroCHECK provides a full suite of oil, fuel, hydraulic fluid, and
filter/debris analysis services which assists operators in identifying
potential component failures before they occur, and helps reduce
unscheduled maintenance to a minimum.
Until now, complex quality testing and investigative analysis for
regional airlines, aviation operators, and maintenance organisations was
shipped to the UK, with a test and response time of 12-16 hours.
AeroCHECK in the UAE reduces the process to just two hours, with 24-hour
support, a dedicated on-call hotline, and a full AOG (Aircraft on
According to International Air Transport Association (IATA) the United
Arab Emirates will be the second fastest growing market for
international passenger traffic after China at 10.2% and 10.8%,
respectively. The association stipulates that profits from carriers in
the Middle East are expected to grow from US$1.0 billion in 2013 to $1.6
billion in 2014 driven by rapid growth of airlines in the Gulf.
With a single point of contact for all testing requirements, fleet
operators have simple, rapid, and easy access to Intertek’s full range
of accredited testing, expert consultancy advice, and test result
interpretation. The Sharjah, UAE AeroCHECK laboratory provides a full
range of testing capabilities, including the analysis of oils and fluids
used in engines, gearboxes, auxiliary power units (APU), and hydraulic
systems. Additional testing includes fuel analysis, fuel microbiological
contamination, water testing, magnetic chip detector (MCD) and filter
debris analysis, and grease testing and component ‘mode-of-failure’
Mr. Hussain Al-Atrakchi, Regional Manager for Intertek in the Middle
East, said, “Bringing the AeroCHECK program to the Gulf region provides
enhanced quality testing to benefit aircraft reliability and safety.
AeroCHECK provides complete 24 hour support, with a dedicated on-call
hotline and a full AOG (Aircraft on Ground) service.”
Robert Chapman, Global Manager for Oil Condition Monitoring, said,
“Intertek’s AeroCHECK services support the pace of growth in the region.
Our global team of experts on aircraft fluid and debris testing provides
clients with safe and secure online reports, which give important
trending information and fully interpreted results, along with simple
and easy-to-understand summaries and recommendations. With the addition
of a Scanning Electron Microscopy instrument in the laboratory we offer
full testing capabilities locally in the UAE.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
