Iranian Air Force, SAIPA Auto-Making Company to Cooperate on Manufacturing Drone Engines
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh announced preparedness to share experience with Iranian SAIPA auto-making company, and said that the company’s capabilities in production of drone engines will be used as well.
“Given the proper infrastructures of Mega Motors company (the manufacturer of full engines, gear boxes and axles for SAIPA), we want to use the technical power of the company for production of drone engines,” General Nasirzadeh said on Saturday.
“We are also ready to transfer our experiences to SAIPA in the field of manufacturing hi-tech electronic parts,” he added.
General Nasirzadeh said that proper plans and measures will be adopted in manufacturing both sides’ needed parts for the Air Force and SAIPA through mutual cooperation.
SAIPA is the second largest Iranian auto manufacturer. SAIPA (an acronym for the French Société Anonyme Iranienne de Production Automobile) was established in 1966, with 75% Iranian ownership, to assemble Citroëns under license for the Iranian market. Nowadays it builds mainly Korean cars, but has also developed its own engine and range of cars.
Getting European quality licenses for SAIPA’s X 100 products is very important and paves the way for exports of the products to different markets.
