Russia will in future be able to replace the engines of the new Sukhoi Superjet 100 long-haul passenger MS-21, Mi-26 on the domestic, as well as make the engine for the projected Russian-Chinese heavy helicopter, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
at the meeting with the head of state Vladimir Putin, Rogozin told about the plans for import substitution in industry engine building." After analyzing the situation, after talking with the designers, We found one interesting solution. It is because you can highlight this problem as a priority objective not linked to the creation of models of aircraft, since the development of the engine requires more time (three to five years) than the development of the aircraft. We need to create comparatively faster, from our point of view, reserve, – Rogozin said. He added that the necessary work can be done on location of the company " the Perm motors "." We found the decision on the location of work carried out by the Permian, the company " the Perm motors ", to make the base of the gasifier engines that will allow Us to make wider segment of the aeronautical engineering – (with a thrust on takeoff) from 9 to 16 tons", - has specified the Deputy Prime Minister, RIA " Novosti "." This means that We can hold in the future engine replacement new Sukhoi Superjet, make the engine for the replacement of the Ukrainian engine for the Mi-26, under the perspective of the Russian-Chinese heavy rotorcraft and under the larger version of the MS-21 210 passengers", - has specified the Deputy Prime Minister.
Rogozin added that the Russian-Chinese heavy haul aircraft has the ability to be fitted with created on the base of the NK-32 engine, It has the ability to be in the Russian military transport aviation. For example, according to His statement, it is expected the company "the Perm motors" to be done on the base of the gasifier engines that will allow Russia to make a wider segment of the aeronautical engineering." The same solution can be done by scaling-up gas generator engine-To-32, that is the one that We are currently making under strategic bombers, you can create under a military transport aircraft under the Russian-Chinese heavy long-haul aircraft. I have Chinese colleagues said that We can this job be created independently from a third party, and that, in General, they have caused quite a serious attitude, " – Rogozin said. NK-32 is a turbofan engine with a common afterburner. Its development was carried out at the Kuibyshev engine company (now – Samara scientific-technical complex of a name of Kuznetsova). The use of this engine – Tu-160 supersonic passenger Tu-LL. In 1991, the production of engines NK-32 was stopped. The production of a pilot batch of upgraded engines NK-32 is planned for 2016.
