French Safran and Russian United Engine Corporation (UEC) have signed an agreement for the development of the modification of SaM146 engine for the version of Russian multi-purpose amphibious aircraft, Beriev Be-200.
SaM146- an integrated power plant includes a turbofan engine and a nacelle (housing, separate from the fuselage, which holds engines, fuel, or equipment on an aircraft) with a reversing device. It is produced by ODK-Saturn under the terms of an equitable partnership with Safran for equipping the Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger aircraft. The engine and after-sales services are provided by PowerJet (a joint venture between Safran and UDK-Saturn).
ODK-Saturn and Safran Aircraft Engines agreed to carry out modernization (including a major revision of the digital automatic control system software) of the SaM146 engine in service to integrate it with the Be-200 aircraft and further certification of the re-motorized version. A three-year "road map" for the creation of three prototypes, designed for testing and certification was formed.
Safran Helicopter Engines has received EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) engine type certification for its Ardiden 3C, the helicopter engine. Powering the Avicopter AC352, the engine has been jointly developed and built by Safran Helicopter Engines, Dongan and HAPRI, parts of the Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) consortium
Qatar has selected Safran RTM322 Engines for its 28 NH90 military helicopters, whose acquisition was announced on 14 March. They will be assembled in Bordes (France) and delivered to Airbus Helicopters facility in Marignane, where the NH90 tactical transport version (TTH) is assembled, and to the Leonardo Venice-Tessera facility in Northern Italy for integration with the naval (NFH) configuration
Technodinamika is developing filters and filter elements for the MC-21, Tu-214 (including its derivatives) and the Be-200ES aircraft. Work is underway under a contract with Russias Ministry of Industry and Trade to carry out research and development of systems and components for Russian aircraft

Safran Helicopter Engines has made the first ground run of its Tech TP, a turboprop technological demonstrator aimed at 15% lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions than current engines. It is based on an Ardiden 3 turboshaft and developed as part of the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
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
Zunum Aero has selected Safran Helicopter Engines for its hybrid-to-electric commercial aircraft, which will be available in the early 2020s. Safran Helicopter Engines will provide a new generation engine turbine to drive the Zunum ZA10s electrical generator
Safrans new hybrid electric propulsion system for aircraft successfully completed its first ground test that took place at the firms test facility near Pau-Pyrenees Airport, in France. In a distributed hybrid electric propulsion system for aircraft, a turbo-generator (a gas turbine driving an electrical generator) is coupled to a bank of batteries
Boeing and Safran have agreed to jointly design, build and service Auxiliary Power Units (APUs), creating better value for customers and for both companies. An APU is an onboard engine that is used to primarily start the main engines and power aircraft systems on the ground and, if necessary, in flight
