At least 100 helicopters should be produced in Tatarstan in 2023, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Republic of Tatarstan Oleg Korobchenko said on Tuesday at the meeting of the final board of the ministry.

"In 2023 in machine building we plan to increase the volume of shipments by 10%, produce at least 50 thousand trucks, 10 thousand light commercial vehicles, 100 helicopters," Korobchenko said, noting the need to complete the work on the localization of critical helicopter units, including engines.

"In shipbuilding we need to solve the problems of localization of ship equipment production and quit the import dependence. It is also necessary to work on new types of vessels, including drones and those running on alternative fuels," the minister added.

In February 2022 it was reported that Kazan Helicopter Plant planned to hand over to customers 111 helicopters, in particular 58 Mi-8/17, 41 Ansat and 12 Mi-38 helicopters.
