The Technodinamika holding company, a member of the Rostec State Corporation, is developing the first pilot units for Ansat and Ka-226 light civilian helicopters to replace Ukrainian components.
NP1.26А and NP1.26К units are designed to ensure uninterrupted power supply for hydraulic systems of advanced Russian helicopters, according to Rostec press release. The units will be commercialised following all tests.
"The import phase-out programme being implemented by our enterprises allows to significantly expand the competences of the holding company and strengthen our positions in the field that was previously dominated by manufacturers from former USSR countries, – noted Igor Nasenkov, CEO of Technodinamika. – Development of advanced units for hydraulic systems by MPO-Rumyantsev has become an important step towards total independence of the Russian helicopter industry from foreign components."
All working design documentation for production of the new type of products by the enterprise has been developed by designers of MPO-Rumyantsev in compliance with the advanced standards, and the completed samples of units are comparable to foreign counterparts in terms of technical parameters.
In 2017, the Technodinamika holding company has implemented various measures for import phase-out of 52 items and commenced their commercial output. In 2018, the company will finish the import phase-out programme for all critical aircraft units.
