Twelve agreements have been signed to deliver assembly units for Ansat. Kumertau will get the frames to produce units from polymeric composite materials.

The enterprise in Kumertau will also produce frames for batch supplies of side and bottom fuselage panels, the tail beam, cargo gangway and other Mi-38 units.

"A possibility is considered to transfer a part of the work from KumAPP to KVZ, in particular, the final assembly and flight trials of Kamov helicopters. It will produce modern win-win cooperation for both plants from the economic point of view, as well as competence exchange, production load and job preservation," KVZ CEO Yuri Pustovgarov said.
