China Presented 800-hp Composite Engine Prototype at Army-2019 Forum

Rubric: Russia, World, Industry

The Chinese company Haery that presented the family of 7...800 hp UAV diesel engines at the Army-2019 forum looks for Russian partners. Purpose of the cooperation is to finalize powerplants and offer Russian military the readymade products, the company’s representatives shared with Mil.Press Today.

Most of the engines presented at the booth are novelties that still need improvement. However, there are serial models, too. For instance, the 400-hp engine Skylarc is already actively applied to a number of Chinese unmanned aerial vehicles. Moreover, Haery’s products are installed not only on UAVs but on various models of ground and marine robots, too.

"At the Russian market, we plan to work primarily in civil sector. Such partnership will lead our projects to the required condition in order to offer the military the readymade products then", the Haery’s commercial director Qin Hui Yong told Mil.Press Today.
One of the specific features of the Chinese engines is wide use of composite materials. This solution reduces engine weight, allowing the drones move at higher speeds to longer distances. One of such innovations is the 515-kg 800-hp eight-cylinder composite engine Golden Eagle. However, the Chinese delegation brought to the forum only the full-size model; so far, the engine exists as a concept that needs huge improvements.

"We highly appreciate the opportunity to attend this forum. Here we’ve met a number of Russian and foreign companies open for communication, including in the context of further joint work", summed up Qin Hui Yong.

Professionals of EGO Translating SB supported Mil.Press reporters in the talks with foreign delegations.
