NPO Saturn: results of 2013
December 18, 2013, Rybinsk. - Tallying up the results of the expiring year 2013, a conclusion can be drawn that NPO Saturn will have fully honored its annual production program.
The current year budget provides for a 20% increase in the volume of production and sales in comparison to the previous period and doubling following the results of 2012-2013 compared to 2011. The preliminary data shows that the 2013 budget has been fulfilled while the secured portfolio of orders allows to forecast a further steady increase in the production volume over 2014-2015.
The secured production volume required heavy investing in the company’s working capital, production engineering, extensive deployment of shop-floor operators as well as in the redesign of the NPO Saturn planning and capacity management system.

NPO Saturn received a state bench test acceptance certificate for a new prospective engine
December 12, 2013, Rybinsk. - NPO Saturn successfully completed the research and development campaign dedicated to the creation of a new small-sized gas turbine engine. A certificate of completion of the state bench tests was signed by the customer. The formal award of the state bench tests completion certificate took place at NPO Saturn on 12 December 2013 during the extended State commission session.
According to Yuriy Shmotin, NPO Saturn head of design, “the completion of development of the prospective small-sized gas turbine engine is a landmark event for the company. For the first time Russia saw the creation of a completely “electric” gas turbine engine surpassing any existing analogs. A certificate of completion of the state bench tests was signed by the customer, which means that the engine is ready to enter its serial production phase.”
According to the specifications, very strict requirements were posed to weight, dimensions and performance of the new engine. Due to the need to respect all such requirements, the engine design incorporated a series of non-traditional solutions requiring long and painstaking work of design engineers and inventors.
