Russia is developing a helicopter engine for the Ka-226T

The Ufa Engine-Building Association (UEC-UMPO) plans to manufacture a demonstrator engine for the promising VK-650V helicopter engine by the end of the year, which will eventually be installed on Ka-226T helicopters instead of the French engine used at present. This was announced by the managing director of the enterprise Yevgeny Semivelichenko.


Today we have received all the design documentation for this engine. We are preparing production for this engine. The main task this year is to make the "hot part" of the demonstrator engine and put it for testing

- he said.

In 2019, the UEC-Klimov enterprise announced the start of development of a new VK-650V gas turbine turboshaft engine. This power plant has a takeoff capacity of 650 hp. with., as well as in various modes gives out from 400 to 750 liters. from.

Earlier, Anatoly Serdyukov, who holds the position of industrial director of the aviation cluster at Rostec, said that the domestic engine for the Ka-226 helicopter will be certified in 2023. He did not give the name of the engine, but noted that the engine will be in the 400-700 hp class. It was also reported that this engine could be offered to Russian Helicopters for the production of the Ansat helicopter.

The Ka-226T light multipurpose helicopter with a coaxial twin-rotor carrier system has a maximum take-off weight of 3,6 tons and is capable of carrying up to 1 ton of payload. The main distinguishing feature of the helicopter is the modularity of its design - the Ka-226T can easily be equipped with a transport cabin, the design of which can carry up to six people, or modules equipped with special equipment. Currently, the Ka-226T helicopter is equipped with French Arrius 2G1 engines.

            One. TV3-117. Really successful and at the highest level. But he ceased to be ours together with Ukraine. Now we are making it under the VK brand. The rest of the line is really new. There is no competition there. And no one is in a hurry to introduce barriers and duties for the purchase of all sorts of "Robinson" women for a drive.
            The military is not interested in these engines - a trifle.

              The prospects for such engines for the military are enormous. The next step for the UAV is helicopter. Such engines will come in handy.

                The prospects for such engines for the military are huge.

                Where ? To carry a fly churn in one and a half to three tons? Neither steal nor guard. Okay, training initial training, I agree. But! We have capitalism. And you will have to switch to their training system - initially at their own expense in a private "driving school". Then you want to serve - have a raid, pass the selection and welcome to spend the resource of the state-owned Mi-8. That's how they cook - that's why they have more of these pilots than fleas on a dog.
                But a private trader will buy a "foreigner", unless he is forced to buy ours.
                And the UAV "flying" in the army ... laughing Have you seen enough fantasy?

                  The Kraintsy sold a motor of a similar power to the Turks for an aircraft-type UAV with 2 theaters. The same theater of operations will also go to ANSAT .... similar aircraft to L-410.

                  The private owner will buy what is profitable. This time. Helicopter UAV is a vivid prospect for the next 5 years. This is done very closely. So turn off fantasy and watch the news. By the way, fantasy is a new name for fairy tales. Where are the helicopters from there?

            We simply do not have them in this class yet. lol And by the way, import substitution has to be done not so much by French ones. how many Ukrainian engines on which all the main types of turntables flew. Some have already been replaced, but work for another 5 years.

    Russia is developing a helicopter engine for the Ka-226T

    And not only this engine.
    Rostec (UEC) already produces PD-14 for MS-21, and on the basis of the PD-14 gas generator, the development of PD-8 (for BE-200 and SSJ-100) is in full swing. We plan, added V. Artyakov, that PD-2021 will be built in 8, and certified in 2023. Further, V. Artyakov continued, UZGA is mastering the repair of the D-18T for the AN-124, and in parallel, work is underway on the PD-35 engine for both the Russian-Chinese CR929 and for a large truck being developed at Ilyushin JSC (in the future, for 2 engine IL-96). But this is not all of our developments, added V. Artyakov, the UEC is developing VK-650, with a capacity of up to 700 liters. from. (for helicopters "Ka-226", "Ansat" and "VRT-500"), as well as VK-1600, up to 1700 hp. from. (for "KA-62"). Prototypes of VK-650 and VK-1600 will be assembled in 2021 and certified in 2023.

      now an actor from the circus should appear - who will tell that Russia only sells oil.

      When you show them the engines, they will say that this is all Mosfilm

      superjet - does not fly, and if it does, then Mosfilm

      ms 21 - cartoons and what's wrong with that, you think about the production of civilian liners - they are preparing some kind of series - they could make tomagotchi, they would raise more money

      500 planes for the army? Yes, these are all little things, over there in Europe 30 sexes were registered

      70 cars were produced in a year? So what! In Ukraine 000! Even the banana Papuan made 100 wagons. And 100 - or 100 - what's the difference

      We are building nuclear reactors, but we can't even have an iPhone (a lot of tears in our eyes)

      airplanes with helicopters (up to 250 helicopters per year will be produced by the industry without problems) we produce - but still, Russia trades only in oil
      We are already selling food, more than weapons - all the same, actors with a red nose will say - Russia does not produce anything

      Yesterday some cartoons showed that Russia is building nuclear submarines. Found something to be proud of. Even Ukraine has Zaporozhye

      In general, wherever the patriot looks - everywhere he has a cauldron and sadness.

        Well, it's actually not that rosy.
        - the superjet flies, but rarely, there are no spare parts.
        - MS21 takes twice as long to develop as A350, and the edges are not visible yet. And he ate more money, it seems, even. It seems that there is not the result that is important, but the process itself.
        A nuclear reactor is a piece commodity, it is not built every day. In the end, it is Apple that is the richest corporation and not Rosatom. You can earn more from billions of iPhones. And it is safer, in the event of a design error, you will be cursed less. Moreover, the reactor is being built on credit, most of which will be written off out of the kindness of the soul.
        But I don’t find good socks.
        And I don’t share the joy of exporting food. Mainly grain is exported. This is a product with low added value, it is not far from the raw material industry, there is a minimum of benefit for the economy.

          If grain is about 33% of the total volume ... except for grain - "In the 2018/19 season, Russia exported a record 3,7 million tons of key oils (sunflower, soybean, rapeseed), which is 15% more than last agricultural year. According to the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies (IKAR), this allowed Russia to take the 5th place among the world exporters of vegetable oils "... Export of food - possessing such areas, why not use them ... benefits to the economy - but it is also the production of fertilizers and agricultural machinery (for grain), for other crops this list is expanding ... low added value, but the flour market is an order of magnitude smaller than the grain market ... The question is, apart from exports, to bring order to the domestic market

            Unfortunately, agricultural machinery is mostly imported, and fertilizers are produced because in the "civilized" world this production cannot be located according to environmental standards.

          Rzzz. About the socks. In the Russian Federation, poor raw materials are used (combed cotton), making the production cheaper. There are, not very large in terms of productivity, workshops and factories in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan (4 firms: Chimkent, Alma-Ata, Astana and Petropavlovsk with new equipment) and Uzbekistan, which produce high-quality products that go even to the EU. hi

      And not only this engine.

      This information has already been discussed at VO, especially about new engines such as VK-650 and VK-1600. So far, however, no one has been able to provide the economic feasibility of the development. But the creation of engines of this level, and even actually from scratch, is a lot of money.

      On the other hand, the sanctions can put on a joke many aircraft, the same Ka-226 or Ansat. And we know not by hearsay how quickly the French can change their minds.

        These engines are for internal consumption. For those situations when all economic feasibility comes down to two main options: either the helicopter will take off and be operated with a domestic engine, or it will not take off at all, since imported engines are no longer supplied.
        The same Ka-226T are produced for army men, faces, Ministry of Internal Affairs, RG and Ministry of Emergencies.

          I completely and completely agree. But the sad thing is that no one wants or does not want to justify this economically. Although, in my opinion, there is definitely an economic justification for this.

          Investing (state) money in high-tech industries is investing in the future of your state. This also implies the defense of your country.

          Everything is absolutely correct! It's just that for some reason no one wants to introduce such factors into "expediency" that the return will not be in a year or two, but a little more. That there will be new jobs and technologies. That Russia, due to new industries and technologies, will not be able to sell raw materials, but the final product over the hill.

          Unfortunately, many only see the "cut" (which, unfortunately, is also present), and not the benefit on a national scale.
