Viktor Khristenko: UMPO has good prospects for helicopter’s propulsion engineering
The Ufa Engine Plant possesses all conditions for production of the helicopter’s engines, the Minister of industry and trade RF Viktor Khristenko said to the news agency “Bashinform” after the inspection of the plant.
“Today we’ve inspected the site for production of the helicopter’s engines at UMPO. It is quite clear that the plant has good prospects in this direction” – the Minister said – “Just one year and a half ago UMPO had no programs for production of the helicopter’s engines at all. Now the plant possesses several good projects and for today we can be certain that the plant will gain high level on repair-group parts kitting for the helicopter’s engines TB3-117 and BK-2500 and on production of joints and details for the civil helicopter’s engine PD-14, including such detail as the hollow wide-chord blade”.
Viktor Khristenko has underscored the programs are already working at UMPO but some time is still required for development of these projects.
