MOSCOW, April 11 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 130 companies from eight countries will take part in the 12th international show Engine 2012 due at the Russian Exhibition Center on April 17-20, Aircraft Engine Building Union President Viktor Chuiko told a Tuesday press conference at Itar-Tass.
The exhibition will be deployed on more than 5,000 square meters, most of the space (1,000 square meters) occupied by exhibits of the Rostekhnologii State Corporation. Products of the United Engine Building Corporation will be presented on 800 square meters of the Rostekhnologii pavilion. The second largest exhibition will be presented by Ukraine, and third by the Aviaremont Holding of Russian Defense Ministry repair plants.
Russia’s PD-14 fifth generation engine for civil aircrafts will be the exhibition jewel, Chuiko said. The engine was designed for Russia’s MS-21 prospective commercial jetliner. The serial production of the new plane will begin in 2020.
About 150 reports will be made at twelve symposia on the exhibition sidelines. The show will sum up results of the domestic engine building industry, make development plans and promote contacts with foreign partners.
