One of the largest Russian engine manufacturers, UEC Perm, relies on Leistritz' development expertise. The engineers from Turbine Technology are to manufacture guide vanes for the PD 14 engine, which will be installed in the Irkut MC-21 aircraft. "The assignment is a great success for us. It is the first order we receive we receive from Russia for forging AND processing. As soon as the development parts are qualified for aviation, a series order will be in store for us," says Hans-Christian Melzer, Head of Business Development at Leistritz Turbinentechnik GmbH.
