The purpose of the event is to demonstrate water- and ship-based aviation, the prospects of its development and applications for passenger and cargo transportation, tourism, patrol and rescue operations at sea, rendering assistance in case of emergencies and ecological disasters. The exhibition will be supplemented by the following sections: offshore oil and gas production, aquatic resources and aquaculture, underwater equipment, oceanography and ocean resources, hydrometeorological support of human activities in the oceans of the world, law of the sea, water sports and recreation.
“The market of water- and ship-based aircraft is extremely important for our holding,” says Technodinamika CEO Maxim Kuzyuk. “We develop assemblies and components for both deck-based aircraft and for the latest domestic amphibious aircraft Be-200. For example, the holding-manufactured engine control units, ignition units, and oxygen equipment are used in the Be-200.”
In addition, our underwater rescue equipment offering unique resistance to freezing can be used for research and oil production on the Arctic shelf. To date, it has proven its reliability in the northern expeditions and has several deep-sea diving records at low temperatures to its credit.
Over 200 exhibitors from Russia, the U.S., the Netherlands, China, Lithuania, Germany, Ukraine, Switzerland and Israel took part in the previous Gidroaviasalon 2014. More than 50 aircraft were shown in flight, on the ground and on the water. Ground-effect vehicles, hovercraft and the Black Sea Fleet’s warships were presented as well. In addition, a broad range of boats and marine yachts was on display.
