UEC shows off new engines at Airshow China-2012

United Engine Corporation, a subsidiary of OBORONPROM, which itself is a part of the Russian Technologies corporation, is taking part in the China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai, In China from November 13 to 18, 2012.

As part of the exhibition, the Russian engine-building company  which brings together key enterprises from the countrys engine-building industry  will hold a series of meetings with Chinese companies on expanding joint projects between the two countries on engine-building.

Aspart of the exhibition the company will be presenting: a model of the next-generation PD-14 engine, whose first client will be the MS-21 airplane, the first joint Russ-French development, the SaM146 engine, used on the Russian regional SSJ-100 airplane, the RD-33MK engine designed for the MiG-29 family of fighter jets, the new VK-800 800 hp gas turbine engine, designed for light multi-purpose helicopters such as the Mi-54, Ansat, and others, and also the TV7-117SM helicopter engine.

In the military aviation section, visitors will be able to see the 117S engine for the Su-35 fighter jet. This is a full-scale update of the AL-31F engine. Compared to the previous version, the new engine has 2 more tons of lift (14.5 tons), allowing the significant expansion of aircraft capabilities. At present the engine is in research and development, and from 2012 mass production will be unfurling at UEC entities.

Despite the fact that cooperation between Russia and China in the space sector is still less developed than in aviation, visitors to the UEC stand will be able to see the NK-33 rocket engine. Since the end of the Space Shuttle program, the NK-33 is the only engine in the world capable of taking heavy loads up into space.

One of the most interesting exhibits will be the NK-361 engine, designed for a gas turbine locomotive. A locomotive equipped with an NK-361 engine is 30% more eco-friendly than a diesel locomotive, because its emissions are many times lower than diesel analogues.
