“Klimov” planned mass production of engines without Ukrainian parts for 2016-2017


The company “Klimov” will start serial production of engines for helicopters of Mi series without details of the Ukrainian company “Motor Sich” in 2016-2017, said the head of the Department for industrial policy and innovation of St. Petersburg Maxim Meiksin.
“Speaking specifically about the localization of production of helicopter engines VK-2500, now the challenge is to mass production, up to 350 units in 2017. In 2014 Klimov collected the first 10 engines entirely of Russian components. For this reason we can say that the production of Russian engines is mastered, there is a question about the reduction of their cost, ” said Meiksin.
