MOSCOW, Russian Federation (BulgarianMilitary.com) – Rostec revealed on 27th September 2018 that United Engine Corporation (UEC), which a part of the State Corporation, will build a PD-35 aircraft engine test complex at JSC “UEC-PERM ENGINE”. The cost of the project is about $300 million, and the first test stands will be built in 2021, learned BulgarianMilitary.com
The bypass turbofan engine PD-35 aircraft engine is proposed to be used in the Russian-Chinese CR929 aircraft and is expected to have increased thrust (up to 35 tonnes). Its development was started by UEC in the summer of 2016. A family of high thrust engines may be created on the PD-35 base.
At JSC “UEC-PERM ENGINE”, where the testing facilities will be created, there will be an area of about 40,000 sq.m. for production, administration and accommodation purposes, as well as engineering areas with state-of-the-art equipment on the premises of the out-of-town test facility in Russia’s Perm Krai.
The Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy Department of Rostec, Victor Kladov, commented, “The most important objectives during the implementation of the prospective PD-35 project include exhaustive tests of both separate subassemblies and full-size engines. To achieve this, we are creating infrastructure that meets the latest requirements. We have already started preparing designs for facilities. I would like to remind that PD-35 is one of the most significant developments in Russian aviation. I am convinced that the joint project on creating the engine for the prospective Russian-Chinese CR929 aircraft, based on the PD-35, will combine the best technological and managerial competencies of the two countries and will become an example of successful international partnership in the sphere of high technology”
