Let us remind you, that in November of 2007 Minsk motor plant began serial production of diesel engines, corresponding to the norms of Euro-3. This ecological standard is valid in the Russian Federation and in the Republic of Belarus from the beginning of this year. But the preparation to the production of engines of the Euro-3 level began on the plant long before. Serious work was carried out by the improvement of engine construction, prototype engine models were made and two-three exemplars of them were supplied to the biggest producers of freight vehicles and buses in Russia and Belarus.
