Site news 31.10.2017

October 31, 2017, Rybinsk. On October 30, 2017 PJSC "UEC-Saturn" (a part of United Engine Corporation (JSC), a Rostec State Corporation company) was visited by guests from Kaliningrad: Sergey Petrov, Director of technology park "Quantorium", and Sergey Gorobets, grade 11 student - remote participant of forum "ProeKTOrIA". Program of the visit includes an enterprise tour and a meeting with Yuri Shmotin, Deputy General Director - General Designer, JSC "UEC". The result of familiarization with the activity of PJSC "UEC-Saturn" in Rybinsk and future visit of Perm enterprises "UEC-Perm Engines" (JSC) and "UEC-Aviadvigatel" (JSC) will be a supraliminal choice of profession - the choice granted to the talented student by Rostec State Corporation by way of an education certificate for studying in one of eight Russian leading technical institutions of higher education.

All-Russian Forum of professional navigation "ProeKTOrIA" held from September 1 to 4, 2017 in Yaroslavl drew an audience of more than 500 high school students. The forum has been held for the fifth time, however, Vladimir Putin, President of the RF, has attended it for the first time ever. Russian leader gave a lesson on a topic "Russia forward-looking in the future". The lesson was attended by more than 4,5 million people from different regions of the country via a video-conference or personally.  Sergey Gorobets, a student from Kalinigrad, was lucky to have asked a question to the President via a video-conference about civil aircraft engine-building. 

Yuri Shmotin: "The question is interesting, relevant and linked with the technologies implemented and developed at the creation of new gas turbine engines. The question concerns PD-14 engine. This engine is passing through the certification and it shall be certified in 2018. This project is implemented in cooperation with all UEC's enterprises, certification tests of the engines are carried out in Perm and Rybinsk.  This is the reason why UEC together with Rostec State Corporation have invited Sergey to visit "UEC-Saturn" in Rybinsk, "UEC-Aviadvigatel" and "UEC Perm Engines" located in Perm.   Getting acquainted with Russian engine-building - and we have many extensive outputs to show - is interesting and useful, since it allows attracting attention to our high-tech industry."

Guests were impressed by the excursion to PJSC "UEC-Saturn". Sergey Gorobets and his tutor visited the exposition hall (the museum) of the enterprise, production machine assembly shop and assembly line, test cells and the center of additive technologies.

Sergey Gorobets: "Today I managed to visit an excellent enterprise, one of the best engine-building enterprises in the country and in the world". It is my first visit to such a big industrial enterprise". There is a wonderful museum available in PJSC "UEC-Saturn". It is very informative for those people who are interested in engineering, aeronautical field. It was interesting to see in production how a gear or a blade for the low-pressure turbine is obtained from a rough part. And assembly and tests have certainly impressed me".

Sergey was born in Kaliningrad, since his childhood he wanted to be a pilot of the civil aviation (he was not interested in the military aviation). Since some time he wished "to go in engineering, development", because according to him "we should not constantly fly foreign aircraft!". He studies at ordinary school, collects desk aircraft models and attends "Quantorium" where he started from energy quantum and now he is interested in IT-technologies.

The main task of "Quantorium" technology parks is to bring up new engineers. By the end of 2017 technology parks will be available in 36 territorial subjects of the Russian Federation. There will be "Quantorium" in every region of the country by 2020. The Opening Ceremony of the technology park in the Yaroslavl region was held on October 17, 2017 in Rybinsk. Here the programs of additional education for children will be implemented  in five directions:  aircraft technologies, energetics, robotechnics, IT-technologies and nano-technologies. Big industrial enterprises including PJSC "UEC-Saturn" entered into partnership with "Quantorium" of Rybinsk.

Sergey Petrov"Much attention is given to invention, creativity, strong competence, operation on advanced CNC equipment, 3D-simulation programs in «Quantorium". An important point is to teach children correctly in close system relation to industrial enterprises.  To teach generating ideas and formalize these ideas, bring up engineering and general culture.  "Quantorium" trains human recourses for advanced industry that moves Russian economy forward. Therefore, it was extremely interesting for me to see at "Saturn" the scale of production and how the production process is organized. Having familiarized with the history of engine-building and how the engines are created today, I became proud of our past and, uppermost, our present and I believe we are in line and we are doing needful work - we are training engineering staff that will be in high demand".
