Scientific-Production Enterprise YugORGRES

It is the Russian leading specialized organization for commissioning, operational optimization and testing of process and electrical equipment of thermal power plants, gas turbine plants, nuclear power plants, and electric and thermal networks. The Russian leading specialized organization for commissioning, operational optimization and testing of process and electrical equipment was founded in Krasnodar in 1990 as the Inter-Regional Commissioning and Production Enterprise (IRCPE) Energy of the ORGRES company, which employees were formed from the leading experts of three companies of the former ORGRES trust: Dontekhenergo (Gorlovka city), Yuzhtekhenergo (Lviv), and Sredaztekh-energo (Tashkent). In 1992, IRCPE Energy was reorganized into the State Research and Production Enterprise YugORGRES, and in 1994 — into Research and Production Enterprise YugORGRES Open Joint-Stock Company. By 2004, YugORGRES has become the leading industry specialized organization in the south of Russia and became a part of the Southern Centre of Power Engineering. The Research and Production Division of YugORGRES is the main specialized organization for commissioning and testing of equipment of thermal power plants, gas turbine plants, nuclear power plants, electric and thermal networks.
