Russian Helicopters to build Russia’s largest helicopter gearbox and transmission assembly and testing facility

Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec, has launched construction of a new assembly and testing facility at its Reductor-PM plant in Perm. On completion, the facility will be the largest of its type in Russia. Construction facilities are currently being put in place at the site, and preparatory groundworks are under way. At the official ceremony a plaque was unveiled with the start and end dates of the construction, August 2014 and December 2016. This period will see an advanced 20,000 m² production facility built to house Reductor-PM’s assembly and testing plant. “The start of construction of this assembly and testing facility is an important event for this whole region,” said Perm region Governor Viktor Basargin. “The development of advanced high-tech manufacturing will create a solid foundation for the regional economy and will be a key factor in its future growth, by making the region more attractive as an investment destination and strengthening its reputation as a national leader both economically and technologically.”
