“We can place orders for analogues with other companies, we have possibilities to develop cooperation inside the country. We have discussed this issue at a meeting of the board of chief designers,” he noted, however refraining from further details.
According to the regional government, the plant Uralelectromash (Kamensk-Uralsky, Sverdlovsk region) is ready to supply the world’s biggest tank manufacturer, Uralvagonzavod, with more than 300 starter generators to substitute for Ukrainian-made units already in 2014. Uralelctromash plans to increase supplies of starter generator up to 1,000.
