MOSCOW, December 1 (Itar-Tass) —— Composite materials, production of which started in Moscow on November 23,have the first big client.
“A delegation of the European aerospace and defence concern /EADS/, which featured representatives of basic directions: construction of planes, helicopters and rockets, visited the new production facilities in the territory of the Moskvich innovation development centre,” Russia’s Compozit Holding Company told Itar-Tass. “During the meeting, the sides agreed on cooperation in supplies of Russian carbonaceous fibre materials and on organization of a working group to qualify and certify the production.”
According to the EADS regulations, the certification may take up to two years. “This process is quite cost-based – up to a million euros,” the holding company’s Commercial Director Kirill Vasilyev said. “The supplier will have to cover the expenses, but the certification expenses will be repaid in future.”
In aviation construction modern composite carbonaceous fibre materials lower weight of planes and improve strength and aerodynamic features, which will raise a lot competitiveness of Russian planes in the international market. Nowadays, the share of composite materials in promising passenger planes makes about 30-50 percent.
Kompozit carries out research, experiments, development and production of materials for advanced and general applications. Its products include aluminium, beryllium, titan, nickel alloys; constructional steels, carbon-carbon and ceramic-matrix composites, metal-matrix composites reinforced with boric and carbon fibres, constructional glass, organic and carbon fibres plastics, coverings, glues, compounds and enamels. The company has been involved in several spacecraft programs, such as Salyut, Soyuz, Proton, Mir, Energiya - Buran, Sojuz - Apollon, Vega, Fobos and the International Space Station. It has delivered some elements of the beryllium ion guide of CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.
EADS – is the world’s second largest aerospace company after Boeing. The concern is Europe’s second largest producer of weapons and military machinery. The company designs, produces and sells civil and military planes, rocket-carriers and their systems.
