United Engine Corporation, part of the Rostec State Corporation, is exhibiting TV7-117ST, a new base engine for the power unit of advanced Il-112V light military transport aircraft, at the III International Forum of Engine Building (MFD-2018) being held in Moscow this week.
A full-scale specimen of the state-of-the-art TV7-117ST engine for the Il-114-300 airliner is being demonstrated for the first time ever. It is the civilian modification of the engine, TV7-117ST-01, will become the operational engine for the Il-114-300 regional passenger-carrying aircraft whose commercial output is to be revived in Russia. TV7-117ST-01 engine will also be certified as per the civilian standards.
More powerful as compared to the previous modification TV7-117SM, TV7-117ST-01 will increase the capacity of Il-114-300 and reduce the run time of the aircraft. Operation of the unified engine on the Il-112V and Il-114-300 aircraft will enable a reduction of production costs and will become an example of military technology transfer to the civilian sector.
Bench tests of TV7-117ST on an advanced test bench of UEC-Klimov started in September 2016. A year later, in September 2017, UEC commenced the flight tests of the power unit onboard of the Il-76LL flying laboratory. The first stage was completed in December 2017. As a result, the TV7-117ST engine and the AV-112 propeller were cleared for the first flight of Il-112V.
TV7-117ST engines are entirely made of Russian parts, units and assemblies. They are jointly manufactured by a variety of UEC enterprises.
It should be recalled that the import substitution programme for manufacturing of TV3-117/VK-2500 helicopter engines designed for most Mi and Ka helicopters has been successfully implemented at UEC-Klimov since 2014. In 2015, commercial output of the VK-2500 engines was launched in Russia.
Russian United Engine Corporation (UEC) demonstrated its PD-14 1:3 scale engine dummy at the Farnborough International Airshow 2016. “Work on this power unit for the new MC-21-300 domestic airplane is performed via wide-ranging cooperation of the plants belonging to United Engine Corporation
Airbus Helicopters today unveiled its Bluecopter demonstrator which promises quieter and more fuel efficient rotorcraft flights. “With Bluecopter, we have met our goals of decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent, significantly reducing CO2 emissions, and lowering noise to approximately 10 decibel effective perceived noise (EPNdB) below ICAO noise certification limits, while raising the maximum payload and the passenger comfort
Russian Novikombank will finance two key United Engine Corporation (UEC) projects; the PD-14 and VK-2500 aircraft engines and a number of civilian rotorcraft of Russian Helicopters such as the Ansat and Ka-226. Agreements to this effect were entered into at the St
The United Engine Corporation (UEC) has developed a more powerful engine for the Mil Mi-28NM ‘Night Hunter attack helicopter. "The safety, functionality and flight characteristics of the combat helicopter have been considerably increased by furnishing the VK-2500P engine with the upgraded automated control system," Rostec which is the holding company of UEC said in a statement quoted by TASS
