Launch of Capo Composite in Kazan (PHOTOS)

In Kazan on Saturday launched the plant for production of parts made from composite materials

UAC opens plant "CAPO-Composite". "CAPO-Composite" will supply parts made of composite materials, not only for domestic but also for foreign aircraft models.

 SUMMARY: The use of composite materials based on carbon fibers significantly improves aircraft aerodynamic characteristics and reduces the weight of the aircraft. The new aircraft MS-21 the share of composite materials will be 30-40%.

4. CAPO-Composite will produce the elements of the wing and tail surfaces: flaps, air brakes, spoilers, elevators for domestic aircraft Superjet-100 and MS-21. Mass production of parts for the SSJ-100 will begin in the winter of 2013, and in 2015, after technological processing and adjustment of production processes, and the MS-21.

5. During the opening of the plant UAC President Mikhail Pogosyan and president of FACC AG Stefan Walter signed a letter of intent under which the Austrian company will enter the capital of CJSC "CAPO-Composite" in 2014. The share of FACC in ZAO "CAPO-Composite" is 24%. Also in the future, the "Capo Composite" will begin production of parts for Boeing and Airbus.

6. "To create a new domestic and foreign aircraft will require more parts made by innovative technology of composite materials. The plant took place thanks to co-operation with the best domestic and foreign organizations ", — said the President of the United Aircraft Corporation Mikhail Pogosyan.

9. During the construction of the plant KLA actively collaborated with a number of Russian and international companies, in particular, the All-Russian Institute of Aviation Materials, RUSNANO, from Cytec and Hexcel. By July, completed the bulk of construction work. Started producing batches of technology for aircraft.


11. CAPO-Composite became the first new plant opened in the framework of the KLA for the construction of centers of competence. The program provides for the opening of new industries, including the production of wings made of composite materials, doors and hatches in Ulyanovsk, Voronezh nacelles, aircraft design center in Moscow.

12. The new production has created 200 jobs by the end of the year of "Capo Composite" will draw on the work of about 150 employees. The volume of investment in new plant — more than 3.5 billion rubles. The largest shareholders are the United Aircraft Corporation and the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan.
