Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has taken part in the video conference call with the NPO Saturn SaM146 engine assembly shop personnel
On August, 17th, during MAKS-2011, the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin visited the Oboronprom exhibition room and participated in a video conference call with the employees of the NPO Saturn Rybinsk-based assembly shop performing serial assembly of the Russian-French SaM146 engine powering Sukhoi Superjet 100.
On one end of the dedicated “MAKS – NPO Saturn assembly shop” video conference call there were Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, vice-prime minister Sergey Ivanov, governor of Yaroslavl Region Sergey Vakhrukov, NPO Saturn CEO Ilya Fedorov, on the other side there were deputy head of the assembly shop ¹ 80 Semen Shalukhanov and assembly worker Aleksey Perov.
Vladimir Putin asked the assembly shop employees about the current situation at NPO Saturn.
At MAKS-2011 the NPO Saturn engines will take to the sky three new types of Russian aircraft and will be extensively featured in the Oboronprom integrated exhibition
NPO Saturn will take active part in the 10th anniversary International aviation and space salon MAKS-2011, that will traditionally take place from August 16th to 21st 2011 in Zhukovsky (near Moscow).
NPO Saturn CEO Ilya Fedorov said: “The knowledge of Russian engine building possessed by NPO Saturn is quite extensive which puts a lot of responsibility on the company. It is indicative that the majority of new products in Russian aviation that will be featured at the salon are designed by the Sukhoi Company and NPO Saturn teams working together. These are the new SSJ-100 passenger jet equipped with the SaM146 engines jointly designed and developed by NPO Saturn and a French company Snecma that already demonstrate the highest level of reliability during their first months in revenue service having endured well even the ingestion of a flock of birds as was the case in early August during landing of an Aeroflot plane in Nizhni Novgorod. And, of course, the entire NPO Saturn is immensely proud of the fact that this year will see not only the flights of the new Su-35 fighter powered by the Saturn-made 117S engines but also the flights of the salon’s exclusive feature – the prospective aviation complex of the fifth generation (PAK FA) also equipped by Saturn engines.
NPO Saturn: from MAKS to MAKS
NPO Saturn (Rybinsk, Yaroslavl Region) is participating in the 10th anniversary International aviation and space salon MAKS-2011 that will take place from August 16th to 21st 2011 in the city of aviation science and engineering – Zhukovsky (near Moscow) at the airfield of the country’s central test base – M.M. Gromov flight and research institute.
Looking back at the way the company has passed from MAKS-2009 to MAKS-2011, NPO Saturn CEO Ilya Fedorov said: “This period saw the change of the team, even the people themselves have been restructured. The system of values has also evolved. Practically we have become a state-owned company both in terms of executing government-set objectives and caring for the people. People are the most valuable asset of the company. It is exactly due to them – young, creative and professional people – that we have been able to preserve the company for the region, the industry and the country as a whole.
