MOSCOW -- Rostec’s United Engine Corp. has presented the project to re-equip the Be-200 amphibious aircraft with the Russian-French SaM146 turbofan engine. The presentation took place at the recent Hydroaviasalon-2018 exhibition in the Russian city of Gelendzhik. The engine retrofit will make it possible to introduce the aircraft on the European and American markets, and also to begin the validation of the aircraft in the transport and passenger configurations.

The re-equipment project provides for modernization of SaM146 engine, including improvement of the software for the digital automatic control system. The next stage is the integration of the engine into the Be-200 aircraft and further certification of the re-equipped version.

The key advantages of the SaM146 engine unit are its simple and reliable construction, competitive price and life cycle cost. The engine meets high standards of environmental friendliness and fuel economy. The SaM146 engine unit has also passed international certification and complied with prospective ICAO requirements.

"The implementation of this project will essentially make it possible to create a new aircraft based on the legendary Be-200, which is known to the world as a fire-fighting amphibious aircraft. The new engine opens up the possibility of the aircraft undergoing the certification and validation procedures necessary to enter the world market. I am sure that, thanks to improved technical characteristics and a well-deserved reputation, this plane will be in demand abroad," said Anatoly Serdyukov , industrial director of the aviation cluster at Rostec.

The SaM146 is an integrated engine unit, including a turbofan engine and a nacelle with a reversing device. The SaM146 is produced by UEC-Saturn in an equal partnership with Safran Aircraft Engines to equip Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger planes. PowerJet, a joint venture of Safran Aircraft Engines and UEC-Saturn, is supplying the SaM146 and providing after-sales servicing. UEC-Saturn is responsible for the design and manufacture of the fan and low-pressure compressor, low-pressure turbine, general engine assembly and testing. Safran Aircraft Engines is responsible for the high-pressure compressor, combustion chamber, high-pressure turbine, unit box, ACS and engine unit integration.

The Be-200 can take off both from land or water. The main areas of its application are firefighting, search and rescue operations, protection of water surfaces, environmental missions, and passengers and cargo transportation.
