The Russian United Engine Corporation (UEC), the integrated structure uniting all major Russian gas turbine engine developers and manufacturers) is presenting the newest Russian civil aero engines, including the new generation PD-14 engine developed for the MC-21 airliner at the Iran Air Show 2016. The Iran Air Show 2016 will take place from 16th until 19th November on the Kish island (Islamic Republic of Iran).
The UEC has planned the talks with the civil operators of the aero technics powered by the UEC engines. Apart from the PD-14 the UEC's show exposition includes the TV7-117V helicopter engine.
“We expect that Iran's aviation market (which is very promising for us) rapidly grows amid the process of lifting of sanctions, said the director general of the UEC Alexander Artykhov. “We are confident, that the increase of the park of the commercial aircraft and the rise in intensity of its exploitation will create a firm ground for the mutually beneficial cooperation with our Iranian counterparts.”
An important area of cooperation with Iran is providing for exploitation of the current and future park of engines, including the repairs, the components' supply and teaching the exploitants' or the specialised enterprises' personnel.
PD-14 is a base turbofan engine, which is being created by the UEC for the purpose of powering the Russian MC-21 airliner. The most up-to-date technologies and materials, including the composites, are in use. This is the first completely Russian engine for the civil airliners, created in Russia during the last decades. The flight tests have started in 2015.
The TV7-117V engine, developed for the newest Russian Mo-38 helicopter, secures the flight by turning on the emergency thrust rating with power output up to 3 750 shp. The new full authority digital engine control (FADEC) system is installed.
