Press-release

On January 11, 2018 Yuri Borisov, Deputy Minister of Defense of the RF, visited PJSC "UEC-Saturn" (a part of United Engine Corporation (JSC), a Rostec State Corporation company) in Rybinsk and held a meeting dedicated to the development of the Russian engine-building industry. In particular, Deputy Minister of Defense of the RF, reviewed the progress on the UEC's program aimed at the development and industrialization of marine gas turbine engines (GTE) and gas turbine power units’ serial production.

Yuri Borisov visited several UEC-Saturn's production and test facilities including the unique assembly and test facility for ship gas-turbine power units.

"We focus on the industrialization of gas turbine engines including the engines for frigate ships. As of today, the activities started in 2014, have been finished by the official tests and assignment of the alphabetical designation to the gas turbine power units. We are no more dependent on Ukraine for these extremely important items, - announced Yuri Borisov. - These days, the issue regarding the development and further upgrading of maritime engines is completely solved at the enterprise. The unique test bench equipment installed here will be in service for several decades. Therefore, I consider the issue of gas-turbine power units for marine fleet to be completely off the table and we can be absolutely unalarmed about this point".

According to Deputy Minister, we are referring to the creation of "maritime gas turbine engine-building industry".

"Today, we have an advanced production process chain aimed at sufficient number of production specimens per year, - specified Yuri Borisov.  - Everything linked with the engine is fixed.  Moreover, it is fixed with a perspective and opportunity for upgrading and development.  So, I would define the achievements of my colleagues from the Ministry of Industry and Trade as the industry rebirth. 

The assembly and test facility for ship gas turbine power units with the unique test benches with capacity from 15 to 40 MW is essential for the implementation of the Russian maritime gas turbine engine-building project. Technology solutions of the assembly and test facility allow testing more than 20 configurations of ship power units.  The assembly and test facility is a cluster that meets not only current demands of the country in maritime power units at the step of import substitution; it will also allow testing the advanced gas turbine engines and power units. However, it is possible to test the whole power unit as well as its components.  In April, 2017 the assembly and test facility of ship gas turbine power units was put in pilot operation in the presence of Vladimir Putin, the President of the Russian Federation, by starting the tests of gas turbine power unit M35P-1 with the engine М70FRU-2 for maritime programs. At the present time, the assembly and test facility is already in industrial operation.  However, it is a multipurpose test bench that, with necessary modifications, enables performing the tests of gas turbine engines for industrial application with the unit capacity up to 40 MW.

Experimental design works on the development and launching into manufacture of ship gas turbine engines were successfully finished at UEC-Saturn in 2017: OKR "M70FRU-R" ("reverse"), OKR "DKVP unit" and OKR “M90FR". UEC-Saturn is ready for serial production of power plant units for maritime application.

"When developing the maritime gas turbine engines, we followed an unification approach based on which we established an opportunity to develop the engines of the next generation, - announced Yuri Shmotin, Deputy General Director-General Designer, JSC "UEC".- The product's improved reliability due to compliance with severe requirements to the production of significant parts is an advantage of Russian maritime gas turbine engines in comparison with the Ukrainian ones produced under the manufacturing processes developed in the 60-80s.  Low specific fuel consumption and the increased time between overhaul should be empathized. However, UEC's gas turbine engines for maritime application are multipurpose and can be applied in different ship classes. The existing engine rate is sufficient to cover the need in gas turbine engines for modern ship designs”.

"We have an initial stock of orders, and today our task is to ensure a long-term workload of the enterprise with this product range, - specified Viktor Polyakov, Deputy General Director-Managing Director, PJSC "UEC-Saturn". -The first production power plant units for the Russian Navy have been already launched in production alongside with completed experimental design works".

In framework of implementation of "maritime" program, UEC-Saturn's facilities were equipped with the advanced production equipment. It enabled to put a series of new manufacturing processes in production. Besides, the experience in application of digital mock-ups of engine parts having a complex three-dimensional configuration allowed reducing the industrialization time.  

Apart from maritime gas turbine engines and power plant units, UEC-Saturn deals with the development, production and after sale support of aircraft gas turbine engines, gas turbine power plant units used for oil and gas transportation and power generation as well.  In particular, the enterprise produces D30-KP engines for transport aviation and special-purpose small-size gas turbine engines. UEC-Saturn manufactures SaM146 engines for commercial aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100 in partnership with Safran Aircraft Engines (France).

PJSC "UEC-Saturn" is an engine-manufacturing company specialized in the design and development, production and after-market support of gas turbine engines for military and commercial aviation, power generation and gas compression as well as for ships and vessels. UEC-Saturn is part of United Engine Corporation. It is located in Rybinsk (Yaroslavl region). UEC Saturn is a member of Russia’s Mechanical Engineers Union, an All-Russian industrial association of employers. The Yaroslavl regional division of the All-Russian public organization ‘Russia’s Mechanical Engineers Union’ is headed by Viktor A. Polyakov, Managing Director of NPO Saturn.

United Engine Corporation (JSC) (a Rostec State Corporation company) is an integrated organization specialized in the design and development, serial production and after-market support of engines for military and commercial aviation, space programs, the Navy as well as for the oil and gas industry and power generation. One of UEC’s prioritized fields of activity is the implementation of comprehensive programs of development of the industry’s companies by introducing new technologies meeting the world-class standards.

Rostec State Corporation is a Russian corporation established in 2007 in order to facilitate the development, manufacturing and export of high-technology industrial products of military and commercial application. The corporation comprises 700 companies, which form 11 defense-industrial and 3 civil industry holdings as well as 80 direct control companies. Rostec’s subsidiaries are located in 60 regions of Russia and deliver their products to over 70 countries worldwide.The Rostec portfolio spans such renowned brands as AVTOVAZ, KAMAZ, Kalashnikov Concern, Russian Helicopters, VSMPO-AVISMA, Uralvagonzavod and others. Rostec' s consolidated revenue reached 1 trillion 266 billion rubles in 2016. Rostec's consolidated net revenue reached 88 billion rubles, and  EBITDA  reached 268 billion rubles in 2016. The corporation's average salary in 2016 amounted 44 000 rubles. Following Rostec's new strategy, the major objective of the Corporation is to ensure the technological advantage of Russia at the competitive world markets. The implementation of a new technological wave and digitalization of Russian economics are among Rostec's tasks.
