Remotorization of helicopters on Motor Sich

9
Ukrainian Motor Sich JSC is actively engaged in helicopter-related work. The company has a design office and helicopter production, which are developing, designing, upgrading, repairing and re-motorizing helicopter equipment.





In 2011, the company received a certificate issued by the State aviation service of Ukraine, according to which Motor Sich JSC is recognized as a developer of aviation equipment.





In order to further improve the flight performance of helicopters, especially when operating in high-altitude regions of countries with hot climates, the TV3-117ВМА-СБМ1В engine was created at Motor Sich JSC, which also has significantly increased resources.

Certification modifications of this engine, which received the designation TV3-117ВМА-СБМ1В 4 (with air start) and 4Е (with electric start) of the series, were performed. They are designed to remotorize Mi-8T helicopters in service, where the new engine will replace the discontinued TV2-117, which will improve the flight and performance characteristics of these machines.


As a result, a Mi-8MSB helicopter was created, equipped with TV3-117VMASBM1B 4Е Ukrainian engines. The first flight of the upgraded helicopter took place on November 10 2010 of the year at the airport of Motor Sich JSC.





To date, repair and remotorizatsiya five helicopters. The first - with a tail number 2911 is being tested in Feodosia. The following three cars made in this series are on Motor Sich. The fifth board - in the airline in supervised operation.


Remotorization of helicopters on Motor Sich



The next five cars are in varying degrees of remotorization. It is carried out initially at the aircraft repair plant. It performs overhaul of helicopters to restore their full airworthiness. After that, “Motor Sich” replaces the old engines with a new modification.

To install the TV3-117ВМА-СБМ1В series 4Е on the Mi-8Т the following modifications are made: the fuselage with the installation of the half-body 2А, hoods, engine inlets and fan. The principle of using engine systems remains the same, but all pipelines and electrical housings in the engine compartment are being replaced.




At performance of repair at the request of the customer installation of the additional equipment is possible.



With the exception of purchased units, all parts when working on Motor Sich are manufactured by the company. A number of systems and units are purchased from aircraft manufacturing plants in Russia.


The helicopters that had served 35 for years in the Ukrainian Air Force were written off, and now with the help of Motor Sich they will gain a new life.




Selling a Mi-8 helicopter after repair and remotorization is offered at a price of about 5 million dollars.

As the plant representative said, there is no need for the re-motorization of the Mi-24, this process is in a very distant future.











Here such beauty.

    In general, fine, but I understand selling Mi-8, Mi-24 .. but is Mi-4 still relevant? Although if in private hands, then why not.

      Um, um, this is not Mi-4, but Mi-2. And Mi-2 with economical turbines with a good resource is very relevant. If Ukrainians manage to do everything in a quality manner, then they will have a sales market. They put their engine, and they put Turbomek on the killer whale. Well, why the hell is that?

    In fact, the progress of Motor Sich is bad news, since this is a Ukrainian enterprise, and Ukraine is a potentially unfriendly state (the sold Varyag and ship turbines to China, the Su-27 to the USA, again the Bison to China) with an unpredictable bloc status (agreement Association with the EU is only a flower), and it is not wise to depend on it for such sensitive things as engines for helicopters, combat trainers and transport aircraft. The Konotop Aircraft Repair Plant is potentially the third source of production for helicopters of the Mi-8, 17 family. Accordingly, it is necessary to continue the course outlined by the former Commander-in-Chief Mikhailov to completely curtail relations with the Ukrainian defense industry. The costs of this will be sensitive, but they will be minimal compared to the damage that "cooperation" and common inheritance with this country brings.

      Konotopsky was actually the first, 40 years of repair mi 6 and mi24, it is after the collapse of the Union, everyone was lazy to repair. By the way, after the repair at the Konotop ARZ there was not a single aircraft accident that led to the wreck of equipment, and now look how many car wrecks after 92 years were caused by the fault of equipment?

      So I think so. Minimize everything! No joint projects. Consider Ukraine as an unfriendly state (at least for now ...). And squeeze the Crimea !!

    Thank you for the good photos, and separately for the colorful young ladies on many of them winked , one hundred percent are the main technical specialists of the plant smile . But in fact, MotorSich (turbines, pumps, outboard motors, auto parts ...) is one of the few high-tech enterprises that remains afloat in the raging political and economic storm of Ukraine.

    Well, what a lot of good news. Motor Sich engines are used for our turntables, more than 80% of the Mi and Ka helicopters, including the world's most lifting Mi-26, lift Zaporizhzhya motors into the sky.
    At the current 11th air show MAKS-2013 in the exposition of the corporation NPO A. Ivchenko "will present a number of engines created by our company (TV3-117VMA-SBM1V, TV3-117VMA-SBM1V 4E series, MS-500V, MS-14 and AI-450MS) and in conjunction with Ivchenko-Progress (D-436) -148 FM, D-136-2 and AI-450M).

    The largest engine in our exposition is the D-436-148FM, which is another modification of the D-436-148 family. It is successfully operated on the An-148 and An-158 aircraft. The D-436-148FM engine was designed for the An-178 medium transport aircraft and subsequent modifications.

    A promising fan has been developed for this engine, the design of which uses new solutions to increase efficiency, pressure and reduce noise. In combination with an increase in the performance of the main engine components, this will provide a significant improvement in the aircraft's flight performance.

    It should be noted that the marine modification of the engines of this family - D-436TP - ​​as part of the Be-200ES aircraft in November 2008 was the first of the aircraft engines in the post-Soviet space to be approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for compliance with international airworthiness standards, ensuring the possibility of the Be-200ES seaplane entering the European and American markets.

    For various modifications of the An-148 and other passenger and transport aircraft with marching engines of the D-436 family, MOTOR SICH JSC created a twin-shaft auxiliary gas turbine engine AI-450-MS. It provides the launch of marching engines, as well as the supply of compressed air and electricity to the on-board systems of the aircraft with marching engines inactive.

    The high efficiency of the VGTD AI-450-MS application is achieved due to the low specific fuel consumption, which is a consequence of the high parameters of the thermodynamic cycle, high efficiency of the units and the choice of circuit with air intake from the service compressor, as well as due to low operating costs.

    Work continues on AI-450C and AI-450C-2 turboprop engines with 400 and 750 hp take-off power respectively, intended for general aviation and training aircraft. At present, the AI-450S engine model and two engines for bench and flight tests have been manufactured.

    In April 2013, at the international specialized aviation exhibition AERO Friedrichshafen (Germany), the AI-450C engine was shown as part of the layout of the 5-seater single-engine aircraft DA-50 TURBINE, the world-famous Austrian company DIAMOND AI.
    A little more, damn such news!
    Yes, by the way, I also congratulate the Ukrainians on the fact that a world record was set in Crimea for raising a helicopter to the maximum flight altitude. The upgraded Mi-8MSB helicopter with TV3-117VMA-SBM1V 4E series engines rose to a height of 9150 meters and thereby blocked the ceiling of the height of last year.

    Keep it up! good Yours! hi

    Motor Sich "well done for not going to the bottom, but floundering, thanks to the fact that their honorary president is an authoritative deputy from the ruling Party of Regions. And he supports social programs and cuts people down and cares about veterans. But this is galvanization of a dead frog - if Ukraine is like it will get (though unlikely) into the EU, all the remnants of the military-industrial complex - a complete ... end. If in the CU - then there will be a sales market. If, as now - neither here nor there, then these convulsions will not lead to anything. " Did you read Professor Dowell's head as a child? - Russia has already mastered the production of its engines in Perm and will do without Ukrainian ones.

    Motorsich well done! But somehow they are silent about the transmission units. When replacing the engines on mi-8, the gearbox also needs to be changed. But the Mi-2, it seems, already does not produce transmission units.
    In Russia, engines from car kits are assembled. I can’t make my own gas generator

    Now, as I understand it, the enterprises of the Russian Federation have no barriers to "remotorization" of the entire range of Antonov equipment scattered across the country's air dumps. There is a precedent.
    It reminds me of a local tradition: a person buys a wreck for demolition at the price of a land plot, demolishes everything except one wall (documented in the city) and thus "repairs" the whole house. But this is a house; it does not fly. How about fatigue stress in metal? The engine may be new, but the whole product is old and worn out.

    In the case of Ukraine, theoretically possible cooperation is blocked by the unsettled geopolitical status of the country, the Ukrainian political "elite" will never make its choice in favor of Russia, in any real form, this is a fact, and one should not amuse oneself with any hopes, the fate of Ukraine is the state is a limitophore, such as Poland Pilsudski from Czechoslovakia to Munich 1938, as soon as a serious conflict between the West and Russia begins, the exchange will follow the old patterns ... TAPOiCH (Tashkent aircraft plant), the cotton republic does not need an aircraft industry at all, which in large-scale form can exist on the territory of the former USSR only in the form of a UAC, this was understood in the Kremlin, production was postponed, at the exit, in a dry ostak we have reanimation of the plant in Ulyanovsk, returning the country's competence on cargo planes, and the southern republic got rid of another reminder of the "colony flax "past. They are also satisfied there. Therefore, there is nothing wrong if cooperation with Ukraine is frozen, NITK is already building its own in Yeisk, they have sold everything that could be sold to China by transport aircraft, the similarity of the fuselages of the Y-76 and An-20 is obvious, let them cook in their own juice ... The fate of Ukraine is the agricultural land of the United Europe (with the Euro-Atlantic choice).

      And we have production. And more often articles
      By the way there is a wonderful video about MS


      look and think who you will support if you turn them away from Russia?
      Turn away from Russia all those who believe in it, and there are many of them. Help all those screamers from the west. They are few, but they are the loudest. And after the actions, there will be more of them and there will not be those who believe in Russia.
      MS has nothing to do with the screamers of the West, like Ivchenko Progress, Zorya and others ...
