History

1947

A leading Soviet physicist and Nobel laureate Pyotr Kapitsa initiated construction works
of Kazan Compressor Plant

Pyotr Kapitsa First bunk houses for construction workers. 1947

Within the first five years (1951-1955) the plant put into production ten new types of compressors and began the very first supplies of compressor equipment abroad. 1955: start of centrifugal compressors’ manufacture

The first centrifugal compressor CK-100-6.5


1957

A Compressor Building Engineering Department was launched (today known as NIIturbokompressor) to start engineering of compressor equipment in Kazan.
