History Project institute №1 - the country's history


In April 1949, the Ministry for the Construction of Machine-Engineering Enterprises began directing Project Development Institute No. 1. A great scope of hydro-technical work shipbuilding design projects was still in progress, and a new chapter was started, namely, the designing of machine-engineering enterprises. The Institute went on to design over 200 such enterprises.

A metalwork department specializing in complex work in metal was established at the Institute in December. The department was headed by A.P. Morozov, a qualified industry specialist, and he arranged Morozov’s weekly Tuesday meetings on both design and scientific issues.
