A site for the production of mufflers was launched at the Shadrinsky Automobile Unit Plant. The development of new products allows the enterprise to develop cooperation with the American company Geerac Power Systems, which is one of the world leaders in the production of backup power supply systems.
- The muffler is designed to reduce the noise level of exhaust gases in the generator set exhaust system, - said Vyacheslav Usoltsev, Deputy Technical Director of ShAAZ JSC. - At the present time, seven modifications of the product have been accepted for development, intended for both large industrial and small household generators. We use stainless steel for manufacturing, since the reliability and durability of such a muffler is much higher than that of products made of aluminized or plain steel.
The first prototypes of the muffler were sent to Geerac in November 2019. The prototypes were followed by installation batches, which passed the entire necessary set of tests. Currently, SHAAZ JSC serially supplies overseas two types of mufflers, the rest of the products are at different stages: from testing to preparation for production.
- With the development of the muffler, the range of products supplied to Geerac went beyond the scope of radiator products and now includes other components for generating sets, - says Vyacheslav Usoltsev. - This means that the American partners see the Shadrinsky Automotive Aggregate Plant as a reliable supplier, which quickly masters new products, strictly adheres to the volumes and terms of deliveries.
Note that the Shadrinsky Automotive Aggregate Plant and Geerac Power Systems have been cooperating since 2006 ... In 2020, the volume of deliveries to Geerac will be about USD 4 million.
