• elaboration of technical requirements allowing the design and manufacture of the equipment, fabrication of the equipment prototypes and implementation of the common work results throughout the United Engine Corporation companies.
To ensure a holistic approach to re-equipping the NPO Saturn production faculties, the NPO Saturn tooling-production subsidiaries SatIZ and NIR will act as partners in the realization of this joint engineering process.
The production and financial potential of our companies have brought us to establishing a long-term, mutually profitable collaboration focused on the joint engineering efforts to satisfy the aircraft engine component production market, - emphasized NPO Saturn CEO Ilya Fedorov. – We have to come up with a common strategy of the Russian machine building development in the future with regard to its application in the engine-building business. In particular, we will be setting burning issues to the machine-building folks, which they would have to transform into the modern equipment solutions meeting all the aviation industry requirements”.
The intercompany agreement has a provision for setting up an NPO Saturn-based test center where the equipment produced by NPO Stankostroenie would be tested.
