UAC launched production of Mi-38's TV7-117V engine
Citat:The United Engine-Manufacturing Corporation, part of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, has started producing new TV7-117V motors designed for the Mil Mi-38 helicopter, corporation spokeswoman Anastasiya Denisova said in an interview with Izvestiya newspaper.
"No less than 200 various versions designed for helicopters and planes are planned to be manufactured before 2020. Earlier, engines for our civil and military aircraft were manufactured only in Ukraine," the spokeswoman said.
"Now, the TV7-117V engine is made of only domestically-made units and components," she added.
According to Denisova, the baseline TV7-117V engine is among the world’s best motors in terms of its efficiency, reliability and service life.
The TV7-117V engine "can switch to emergency modes of 2,800-3,750 hp to ensure flight safety in emergencies", she added.
The engine’s turboprop versions can be mounted on the Ilyushin Il-114 and Il-112V planes.
