Taganrog Aviation Scientific-Technical Complex named after Beriev, producing Be-200, is remotoring from Ukrainian D-436 engines to SaM146 of Russian-French production, the head of the Bureau of Technical and Analytical Information of the enterprise Andrei Salnikov told RIA Novosti .
We envisage the remotorization of the SaM146 engine (...). The work has been going on for a long time, we do not have any problems with the engines, "Salnikov said. According to him, the choice of engines for the Be-200 depends on the customers.
The D-436 engines produced by the Zaporozhye Motor Sich plant are installed on the An-148 passenger aircraft and the Be-200 amphibious aircraft. On February 19, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Oleg Bocharov, during a roundtable in the State Duma, said that the Ukrainian authorities had banned the supply of power units to Russia.
In May 2015, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine denounced the agreement with Russia on cooperation in the military sphere. In the same month, the Ukrainian government announced the dissolution of the agreement with Moscow on military-technical cooperation.
The SaM146 engines are manufactured by PowerJet, a joint venture of Russian NPO Saturn and French Snecma. These power units are installed on the Russian short-haul passenger aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100.
