Turbomeca Presents The Ardiden 3G Engine Mockup

Selected To Power The Ka-62 Helicopter

A full-size mockup of the Turbomeca Ardiden 3G engine has been put on display at the Heli Russia Air Show. The engine has been chosed to power the multipurpose medium-class Ka-62 helicopter, being shown at the Russian Helicopters display.

Last year at Heli Russia 2011, Russian Helicopters, JSC and Turbomeca signed agreements for the development and supply of Ardiden 3G to power the Ka-62 helicopter. Today, Turbomeca is pleased to present the full size mock-up of Ardiden 3G engine for Ka-62 helicopter. Intended for multiple missions such as oil and gas industry, search and rescue missions and corporate transportation, the Ka-62 helicopter will be equipped with two Ardiden 3G, specific variant of the Ardiden 3 family, featuring optimized performances for these applications.
Designed for medium-lift helicopters with multiple missions, Ardiden 3 engines offer, under all weather conditions, the most increased performances in the range of the 1,750 to 2,000 shp power engines. The modular design and dual channel FADEC, make the Ardiden 3 highly reliable, with the benefit of low operating costs (5,000 hours TBO at entry into service to 6,400 at maturity) and an exceptional low fuel consumption (more than 10% less than the others engines in the same range). The targeted performances of the engine have already been confirmed on the test bench.
Ardiden 3G certification is expected in 2014. (Ka-62 Image provided by Russian Helicopters)
