Aviadvigatel JSC

The word "dvigate" is the Russian word for "engine." So the name "Aviadvigatel" is "AeroEngines". Aviadvigatel JSC has 3000 employees. The engines and industrial gas turbines designed by AVIADVIGATEL Company are produced by two production plants: PERM ENGINE COMPANY and RYBINSK MOTORS Company, Russia.

Aviadvigatel JSC was founded in 1939. The Company is a design bureau specializing in developing civil and military aircraft engines. During the recent years the Company has been also developing and producing industrial gas turbines and electric power stations. The Company from its foundation date in 1939 till 1953 developed a family of star-type air-cooled piston engines. During the following period a number of gas turbine engines was developed including D-20P, D-25V, D-30, D-30KU, D-30KP, D-30KU-154, D-30F6, PS-90A, PS-90A-76, PS-90A2. The Company also offers a number of design and production services.

AVIADVIGATEL Open Stock Company is known worldwide as the leading design bureau in Russia specializing in developing civil and military aircraft engines. Recently the Company became famous for its industrial gas turbines and electric power stations.

Arkadiya Dmitriyevich Shvetsov was the first aircraft engine designer to establish himself in the Soviet Union. He developed his first engine in 1925. One of his most famous engines was the M-11 radial with over 100,000 built from 1927-1959. The ASh-82 was one of the most successful Soviet piston engines of the World War II era. The Company headed by Arkady Dmitrievich Shvetsov from its foundation date in 1939 till 1953 developed a family of powerful star-type air cooled piston engines which are used to power the airplanes developed by Polikarpov, Tupolev, Sukhoi, Lavochkin, Ilijushin, Antonov and helicopters developed by Mil and Jakovlev playing an important role both in the WW II victory and in the post-war period.

Starting in early 1950s the Company was engaged in development of new gas turbine engines. At that time the Company was headed by Pavel Alexandrovich Solovjov, the successor of Shvetsov. Every individual engine of that time can be referred to as the first or the best.

Shvetsov was succeeded by Soloviev in 1953. Pavel Soloviev was the first in the USSR and one of the first in the world who implemented a bypass engine configuration (D-20P, 1960). The engines developed in Soloviev Design Bureau are manufactured by the two largest companies: Perm Engine Company and Rybinsk Motors; these engines form a basis of the Russian long-haul aviation engines fleet. Starting in early 1950s the Company was engaged in development of new gas turbine engines. At that time the Company was headed by Pavel Alexandrovich Solovjov, the successor of Shvetsov. Every individual engine of that time can be referred to as the first or the best. Pavel Soloviev was in head of Perm Design Bureau (these days called AVIADVIGATEL) for more that 35 years and died in Perm on October 13th 1996.

The Solovjov's D-20P engine which was installed on the Tu-124 aircraft was the first Russian bypass turbojet. Next was the D-30 engine which was the most advanced engine of the time. Furthermore it was the base for the development of a family of advanced engines. The family includes the most fuel efficient of that time D-30KU and D-30KP (IL-62M, Tu-154M, IL-76), the unbeatable D-30F6 engine for the MIG-31 fighter-interceptor aircraft, and the PS-90A - the engine that powers the Russian aircraft of XXI century. The PS-90A powers the new generation Tu-204, Tu-214, IL-96-300 and the latest version of the IL-76MF cargo aircraft.

Since 1989 up to June, 2001 with a small break the enterprise had been headed by Juri E. Reshetnikov who carried on with the business of outstanding predecessors. It fell upon him and General Designer Alexander A. Inozemtsev to solve the most difficult problems of keeping the collective, transformation of the enterprise into Joint Stock Company, mastering new business directions in difficult times of transition to market economy.

In June 2001 Mr. Reshetnikov left the post of the Company's General Director to focus on Perm Engine Company work, where he has been working as the Company's General Director since 1998. Mr. Inozemtsev has become the General Director of Aviadvigatel.

That period was marked by development of a new direction of activities, which aimed at the development of industrial gas turbines based on the aircraft engines. Four industrial gas turbines, the GTU-2.5P, GTU-4P, GTU-12P , GTU-16P for gas turbine electric power plants and gas pumping units were developed within extremely short period of time under the order of GASPROM Company. The gas turbines have proved to be highly reliable and efficient while operating.

Gas turbines rated at 7, 10, 18 and 25 MW are being developed under the Ural-Gasprom-2 Program. A family of heavy-duty industrial turbines rated at 45-250 MW is being developed for the COMMON GRIDS OF RUSSIA Company.
