The history of the Volga Mamins diesel engine enterprise is over one hundred years old. It all started with the creation in 1899 of the Special Oil Engine Plant by Balakovo engineers Yakov and Ivan Mamins, who were at the forefront of the creation of the first Russian engines. Diesels of Balakovo industrialists quickly gained fame not only in Russia but also abroad. Before the Revolution, they exhibited at 10 Russian exhibitions, which received 6 silver medals, and at the International Industrial Exhibitions in Brussels, Milan, Paris and London, where they were awarded the highest awards, including the Grand Prix gold medal.

In 1920-1960, the plant produced in-line 2.4 and 6 cylinder two-stroke diesel engines with a dimension of 19/30. In the 1930s, the two-stroke supercharged diesel engine was patented in the USA, England, Germany and Sweden. In 1968, the plant began producing high-speed four-stroke engines 6CHN 21/21 for diesel locomotives and power units, developed by factory designers in conjunction with TsNIDI. These engines were improved and developed, various units were created on their basis.

Volzhsky Diesel named after Mamins marine engine direction began to develop in 2008. Before that, VDM worked only with engines for the railway, with industrial power plants, and produced power units for driving drilling rigs. Volzhsky Diesel steps in the ship market began with our own ship engine and gearbox. We developed the drawings, sent to production, then certified in RMRS and RRR. After that, VDM reworked the existing diesel engine in the ship with the River and Sea registers, changed the design documentation and created a complete package of documents for river and sea engines. Then the Volzhsky Diesel team began to develop documentation for those units that are in demand. This is where work began on the replacement of Daldiesel diesel gear units and the German SKL plant, which produced HP engines. Basically, river vessels to the right of the Urals to the Far East were operated with Daldizel diesel engines, and to the left of the Ural Mountains with engines from the German company SKL.

With the Navy and law enforcement agencies work began to work in 2009. The first orders came from the coast guard of the border troops of the FSB of Russia. Our units began to be put on new vessels of the type "Walrus" and "Lamantin" of project 1496. For the European part of Russia, the Vympel plant began to be built, and the East Shipyard was built in the Far East.

Then Volzhsky Diesel worked with the Navy - to replace diesels that had served their deadlines from Daldizel, RUMO, and German manufacturers. And also put on new buildings. As for the replacement, the diesel engines were mainly changed for water-filled and medium-sized marine tankers, floating cranes, etc. Our units are successfully operated in the Pacific, Northern and Black Sea fleets, as evidenced by customer reviews. For example, the diesel-electric icebreaker of the Northern Fleet "Ilya Muromets" of project 21180. In addition, Volzhsky Diesel continued to participate in the supply of equipment to the vessels of project 23470 under construction at the Yaroslavl Shipyard. Yaroslavl built two tug boats of this project.
