Urals Stampings Plant takes part in major aviation projectUrals Stampings Plant (Uralkuz PAO, part of Mechel Group, MOEX: URKZ) produced parts for Russia’s first gas turbine engine for a civil plane. The plant is preparing to launch them into mass production.
Urals Stampings Plant has mastered production of 19 counts of parts for gas turbine engines produced by UEC Perm Engines. Uralkuz’s products have been confirmed as compliant with norms of the All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials. They endure high heat and mechanical stress and are recommended for use in aviation engines.
Perm Engines has been developing and testing the gas turbine engine over a decade, with more than 30 Russian companies participating in the project. The new engine has already been certified by Russia’s Aviation Register and is planned for mass production. The turbine engine will soon be installed in the MC-21 passenger plane which carries up to 212 passengers and is due to replace foreign airplanes on the domestic market. Also, new modifications based on the turbogenerator are being developed for the extra passenger capacity MC-21-400 airplane and engine replacements are in the works for Russian IL-76, TU-204 and IL-96-400 airplanes.
Urals Stampings Plant is a traditional supplier of the aviation industry. The plant produces over 100 grades of steels and alloys with special performance properties for airplane construction.
