ZMZ will invest 1.6 billion rubles in the development of new turbocharged engines

Kommersant – Zavolzhye Engine Factory (of Sollers Group) has begun to develop a new family of turbocharged petrol engines of Euro-5 and Euro-6 classes. The relevant statement has been made by the deputy general director for the development of ZMZ industrial park: Sergei Ryabov. According to Ryabov, the investment amounts in the development of the new engines and the new family of transfer gearboxes amount to 1.1 billion and 0.5 billion rubles respectively.

Research and Development process is underway on both projects at the moment, as written by Kommersant. The new engines will be supplied to UAZ automobiles. The launch of the serial production is intended for 2018-2019. ZMZ has appealed to the government of Nizhny Novgorod region for provision of support, in connection with the implementation of the new investment project.

As previously reported by Autostat, a project on the expansion of the range of processed automotive components has been implemented at the site of the Zavolzhye Engine Factory in June, required by the plant’s own production scheme, with an investment amount of approximately 2 million rubles. Following the preparations, the serial production of the components for the ZMZ kit -pump mounting brackets for the manufactured ZMZ-409 engines, supplied as a complete set to UAZ vehicles- has been mastered, in accordance with the approved schedule. The significance of the project lies in the fact that the items were previously purchased from third-party suppliers.
