Russian President Vladimir Putin visited engine manufacturer NPO Saturn in Rybinsk on Tuesday, to inaugurate the factory’s production of domestic gas turbine engines for ships. The production line is due to replace imports previously purchased from Ukraine.

During his visit, the leader personally gave the command for work to begin on the production line from the control room.

Putin emphasised it as an industrial turning point saying,, “the push was so serious, as you know in 2014, when some of our partners refused to supply the relevant equipment and we at the time, made a decision: we will not do something average, but we will work out our own new products, our new solutions, our new machines.”

Speaking to the factory workers he said, “I want to thank you for this and congratulate you on a wonderful result.”

During the visit, the president also held a meeting with the military-industrial commission.

NPO Saturn specialises in the development and production of gas turbine engines, power generators, and gas pumping units.
