In accordance with contractual obligations, the NPO “Energomash” (part of the Roskosmos State Corporation) on October 29, 2019, sent three RD-180 liquid rocket engines, previously accepted by the customer, to the United States.

In mid-October, representatives of the companies Pratt & Whitney, United Launch Alliance, and AMROSS signed log books for three engines.

After acceptance, the RD-180 engines were prepared for shipment and sent to the customer on October 29.

RD-180 rocket engines are manufactured for use as part of the American “Atlas” launch vehicles.
