Welcome to the Engine Division - koraput of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.

Engine Division - Koraput, a unit of HAL's vast network, was set up in April 1964 to manufacture R11-f2 turbo jet engine of MiG-21 FL aircraft under licence from the erstwhile USSR. Subsequently, the division took up, under various licence agreements, manufacture of R-11 series engines of MIG-21 FL and MiG-21M aircraft, R-25 series engines of MiG-21 BIS aircraft and R-29B engines for Mig-27M aircraft. Simultaneously, facilities were set up for overhaul of R-11 and R-25 series engines, which started in 1971 and 1983 respectively. Starting from 1997 - 98 we have also undertaken overhaul of RD - 33 Engines of MiG-29 aircraft.

The Division has stepped into diversification by signing on MOU with GTRE for supply of components belonging to three modules (gear box, fan and turbine modules) of KAVERI engine meant for LCA.

The Division has also entered the export market by overhauling R25 engines for Vietnam, supply of helicopter gears for MH1, Japan and supply of spares for Egypt. The Division has bagged an order from M/s allied Signals, USA for machining of castings.

The Division has a long term plan to undertake manufacture of AL-31FP engines for SU-30MKl aircraft under licence.

Today we have behind us a rich and enviable experience of manufacturing more than 1000 aero-engines and overhaul of nearly 4500 powerplants.

The Division has the unique distinction of manufacturing almost all types of components required for manufacture and overhaul of engines and spares for service exploitation. The Division is equipped with modern Forge and Foundry shops which cater to the requirements of prevision forgings and castings.
