MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. The Samara-based Kuznetsov enterprise in the Volga area plans to launch the production of new rocket engines NK-33 previously developed for the Soviet moon rocket N-1 to use them in Soyuz-2.1v light carrier rockets, according to the company’s annual report published on Monday.
"In the period of 2014-2020, there are plans to organize the production of the NK-33 engine with the delivery of new NK-33 engines for Soyuz-2.1v rockets from 2019 in the interests of the Progress rocket and space center," the materials say.
The Soyuz-2.1v is a two-stage rocket designated together with the Volga acceleration unit to bring spacecraft into circular orbits with an altitude of up to 1,500 km and sun-synchronous orbits with an altitude of up to 850 km.
The main developer and manufacturer of the Soyuz-2.1v is the central specialized design bureau TsSKB-Progress. The first launch of a Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Aist satellite took place on December 28, 2013 from Russia’s Plesetsk cosmodrome.
