The Indian Air Force has conducted acceptance testing of the first two auxiliary power units (APU), renovated by the holding company "Technodinamika" (part of the Rostec state corporation) for the military transport aircraft IL-76, and its modifications. Press service of "Technodinamika", the leading Russian developer and manufacturer of aircraft equipment, reported this to Russia and India Report.
"The Indian Air Force representatives have carried out the acceptance of the first two auxiliary power units, renovated by "Technodinamika,” the report stated. The holding company won the tender for the repair of 11 APU for the IL-76 and its modifications for the Indian Air Force, in June 2015.
The terms of the tender stated that the holding must perform maintenance and repair of 11 auxiliary power units for the IL-76 and its modifications that belong to the Indian Air Force. There are a total of 28 planes of this type in service in the Indian Air Forces," said the "Technodinamika" representatives.
According to Maxim Kuzyuk, head of the holding company whom the press service cites, the first two renovated APU were accepted by a high ranking Indian Air Force representative, who visited the "Hydraulics" wing of "Technodinamika," based in Ufa.
"During the visit, he also got acquainted with the production, praised the enterprise’s facilities and its new equipment and implemented the acceptance of the fault detection stage of nine other APUs, which were to be repaired", said Kuzyuk.
"The holding company has won the tender for the supply of components and aggregates, and maintenance and repair of the fleet. The ability to enter into direct contracts allows for a more effective cooperation and a quicker response to the customer’s needs," the holding company representatives said.
