Tender to supply auxiliary power units
Technodinamika Holding has won a tender to supply 9 new
APUs for Ilyushin-76 and its modifications for the Indian Air Force. The tender
value has not been disclosed. According to the terms of the tender, the holding
shall supply 9 auxiliary power units for Ilyushin-76 and its modifications owned
by the Indian Air Force. In all, the Indian Air Force uses a total of 28
aircraft of this type.
The victory in the tender was achieved once representatives of the Indian Air
Force were convinced of the Holding's competence in APU production and repair:
recently the Indian party accepted the first overhauled installation units for
aircraft of this type. Furthermore, Technodinamika's Aircraft Service Center was
registered with the Indian Air Force in February 2015. This meant the company
was able to bid for component delivery, aircraft maintenance, and repair
services for India's fleet.
The value of the bid is not being disclosed at this stage, but winning the
tender means a serious step in the transition to a system of long-term
contracting with the country's representatives.
"In the very near future, we are going to open a service center in India," Maxim
Kuzyuk, CEO of Technodinamika, noted. “It will be arranged in compliance with
the principles of the Make in India program, under which aircraft repair and
maintenance will be localized in India. In this case, the Indian Air Force will
be assured guaranteed deadlines and a high quality of performed works.”
Technodinamika Holding specializes in the design, manufacture, and after sales
servicing of aircraft systems and components. The Holding also manufactures
components for the oil and gas, automotive, transport, and energy sectors.
