Import substitution for energy industry
On January 22, 2015 Head of Laboratory of the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Aviation Materials (VIAM), candidate of technical sciences Valery I. Gromov has participated in a meeting on the priority actions for import substitution of power engineering equipment in the field of gas turbine technology. During the event, which was held at the All-Russian Heat Engineering Research Institute, the creation of a single center of competence and its purposes were also discussed.
As Valery Gromov has noted at the end of the meeting "VIAM expresses its promptness to develop new materials and their production technology to design and manufacture gas turbines for power engineering."
The All-Russian Heat Engineering Research Institute is a national center for fundamental and applied knowledge in the field of power engineering and heating, has a modern experimental base and extensive scientific relations with Russian and foreign energy companies and research organizations.
The institute is actively involved in modernization of the energy sector, development, implementation and distribution of new technologies that enhance the reliability, durability and efficiency of power equipment and environmental protection. It is an organization coordinating the technological platform "Environmentally friendly thermal power high efficiency."
