Hydrovoenproject Project Development Institute No. 1 was established in 1946 on the basis of Promstroyproject Leningrad Trust and the Leningrad branch of Promstroyproject. The order for its establishment was signed by S. Ginsburg, USSR Minister of Military and Naval Enterprises, on 31 March. In the beginning, the staff comprised just 79 employees. The Institute’s establishment process was generally completed by November 1946. Promstroyproject assigned the Institute 252 planners by the order dated 16 November I946.
