MOSCOW, April 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will continue supplying powerful RD-180 rocket engines to the US, the Rocket and Space Corporation Energia president Vitaly Lopota said.
“No one has cancelled engines supplies. We are continuing manufacturing in compliance with the effective contracts,” he told ITAR-TASS on Friday.
Earlier, the media said the US was seeking a license for domestic manufacturing of RD-180 rocket engines.
“It will be too expensive. And it will take much time to start production on the US territory,” Lopota said.
Russian-made RD-180 rocket engines enjoy demand in the United States. The engines are manufactured by Energomash R&D corporation, a supplier of a large number of diverse engineering products. In the US the RD Amross joint venture adapts the engines for use in the Atlas V launch systems.
