The project of fast assembling helm of the company “VVS” Viktor Fedosenko from Khanty-Mansiysk interested military experts
The Russian Venture Company (RVC), the only founder of which is the Government of Russia, approved the Khanty-Mansiysk project of fast assembly heliports to continue the struggle for state investments in the field of dual technologies. Information on this was confirmed on January 30 by representatives of the RVC. The examination lasted 111 days.
The head of the project, the head of the company “Helicopters Helicopters Systems” (CJSC “VVS”) Viktor Fedosenko flies to Moscow in the first days of February for personal participation in the preparations for the final selection, which will be held in the country’s capital in May 2018.
In case of victory, the project team will get state support and will be able to claim heliports launch into batch production.
The main partners of the “Russian Venture Company” in the “Dual Technologies” nomination are PJSC “Aviation Complex named after SV Ilyushin”, JSC “Voentelecom”, JSC “RosElectronics”.
– Out of 399 our project turned out to be among 46 applications that will compete for reaching the final, where only 10 applicants will admit, “Viktor Fedosenko said. – Our simple idea for solving complex problems in extreme natural conditions fell exactly where we dreamed – in projects that claim to be implemented not only in the civilian, but also in the military sphere.
The design of the fast assembly heliport is based on the many years of practical experience of the Air Force team members in the installation of screw piles in soils of varying complexity – from the Nizhnevartovsk bogs to the stony deposits of the Subpolar Urals.
As a result of five years of hard work, there were only 368 successfully commissioned facilities on 6,992 screw piles, but also the development of a unique technology. It allows for two or three days to make a landing site that meets the requirements of the Federal Aviation Regulations of the Russian Federation, in any terrain without using heavy equipment and environmental impact.
The basic version of the heliport with the conventional name K-2, which formed the basis for the project, is designed for servicing, parking and storage of medium-class helicopters such as KA-226 or ANSAT, but capable of taking the Mi-8 in full 13 ton load without damage to the design. The authors of the project are sure that they can design, manufacture and mount a platform for receiving aircraft of any class – from Robinson to MI-26, if necessary.
– We will never replace ground helipads, do not try to do this and try to compete with the price offer or the terms of installation. Our project is indispensable wherever a bulldozer does not pass, there is no place to get rubble, to transport concrete slabs is expensive, but it is necessary – “urgently” or “temporarily,” Viktor Fedosenko said.
The project manager explained that the initiative to implement the project was offered to the authorities of Yugra as far back as 2014, but it did not find understanding. Today, the project of creating Aviakhabs – several K-2 heliports for servicing hard-to-reach areas united in a single network – is again being considered by Ugra authorities, and in the first – Yamal, Yakutia, Krasnoyarsk Territory and Altai Palase casino owners in the Altai Republic.
The project was developed thanks to an application posted by its authors on the resource of the largest start-up accelerator of Russia and Eastern Europe GenerationS in October 2017.
