100 years — a considerable age for at least some companies, and specifically noted as much in the fall Open Joint Stock Company "Kuznetsov", which is located in the city of Samara. The company has come a long way of evolution "hand in hand" with the aviation industry in our country. At the moment of "Smiths" — the leading Russian enterprises for the production and repair of aircraft gas turbine engines, liquid rocket engines for missiles gallakticheskih of the R-7, drive pumping units and modular power plants. With the engines of "Kuznetsov", the launch of manned gallakticheskih ships "Vostok", "Voskhod", "alliance", and automatic transport of freight vehicles gallakticheskih "Progress." Currently the plant has 11,500 people.

A short historical note for aviation enthusiasts:
The history of the company started in 1912. Then, on the basis of semi-artisan workshops located on the outskirts of Moscow to Nikolaev Street (now Weaving) created aircraft assembly plant semitsilindrovyh star-motors of the French company "Dwarf" 80 hp of parts supplied from France. They were installed
on the aircraft, "Newport 4", "Farman-16", etc. In 1915, the company "Dwarf" joined himself to a motor company, "Ron", creating a firm "Gnome and Ron." In 1915 he was evacuated from Riga to Moscow plant "Motor", which produced the engines' Kalep-80 "motors and parts" Dwarf "and" Ron. " The factory is located now serving near the Danilov area.
In 1920, the nationalized factories "Gnome and Ron," "Motor" and "Salmson" assigned numbers Municipal aircraft factory — GAS 2.4 and 6, respectively. Since 1922, the plant "Gnome-Rhone" was named GAZ number 2, "Icarus". In 1924 there was a change: a "GAZ» № 4 "Motor" attached plant number 6 (the last "Salmson"). In 1925, the company was named MV Frunze. Since the area of the plant "Icarus" would not allow him to grow more in 1927 took the historic for "Icarus" and "Motor" solution: combine the two companies into one. New plant became known as the "United gosaviazavod number 2 and number 4 Frunze." Soon significantly shortened the title: "The factory number 24 it. Frunze. "

In the 1930s of the last century to plant them. MV Frunze was initiated creation of the cooling liquid piston engines AM-34 designed by AA Mikulin. While this engine is the best piston engine in the world and was placed on the TB-3, P-7, ANT-25, etc. Known in aviation records crews Chkalov, M. Gromov's, S.Shestakova, A.Yumasheva, G.Baydukova, A. Belyaev, S.Danilina were put on airplanes with engines of the plant, which now bears the title of "Smith."

31. The museum is small, there are only certain models of engines, issued by the company for 100 years. In the photo, the most first aircraft engine "Gnome" (1912-1914 years of release, 60 hp, 1200 rev / min)

In October 1941 the plant was evacuated to Kuibyshev on the area of the plant was being built number 337. As soon as possible the creation of engines AM-38, which has begun in Moscow for the Il-2 was resumed by the new site. During the war years (from 1941 to 1945.) Was released 25443 AM-38F engine, 10242 AM-42 (for IL-10) as well as engines AM-35 (for the MiG-1) and GAM-34BS (for torpedo boats) . In the late 1940's — early 1950's. the company launched a series of turbojet engines VC-1, Klimov designed for frontline aircraft IL-28 and MiG-15, RD-900 — ramjet engines MM Bondaryuk for unmanned aircraft target La-17 and RD-012 supersonic intercontinental cruise missile for "The Tempest" Lavochkin.

From the second half of the 1950s, the factory began to be introduced into series development of a family of engines mark "NC", developed in the bureau head designer ND Kuznetsov. Since then, over 60 years, companies have joined voedinyzhdy partnership affairs: EDO been developing engines, Plant. MV Frunze their standard created. First you design office (in consequence of "SNTK. Kuznetsov") was formed in Kuibyshev in 1946 by order of the Minister of Aviation Industry (№ 228 of April 19, 1946) by the Council of Ministers (Decision № 874-366 from April 17, 1946) under the title The municipal union experienced plant number 2.

From October 1946 to December 1953 at the plant number 2 were German experts at (engineers and technicians) aircraft engine companies "Junkers", "BMW" and "Askaniya" with their families. Together with the designers of the enterprise they worked on improving the air-breathing jet engines 004 (based on the Jumo-004), 012B (based on the Jumo-012), 003C (based on the BMW-003) and 022 turboprop engine (based on the Jumo-022).

April 15, 1949 to enhance the technical management of the main designer of the plant number 2 is assigned and transferred from Ufa Nikolai Kuznetsov. First 50s EDO company has developed an experienced motor Sparky 2TV-2F (then NC-12) with a capacity 12,500 hp for the strategic bomber Tu-95. Since 1954 and for more than half a century of this engine and its modifications — NK-12M, NK-12MV, NK-12mA, NK-12MK, NC-12MP, NK-12MPT (capacity of 12,000 to 15,000 hp) standard they are produced in the factory. Frunze. The engines are mounted on the Tu-142, AN-22 "Antey", on commercial passenger aircraft Tu-114, winged "Eaglet" and other aircraft.

Samara region: JSC "Kuznetsov"

August 27, 1953 of a pilot plant number 2 renamed experienced factory number 276. July 12, 1957 for the creation of NK-12 engine was awarded the Order of Lenin.

Since the early 1970s, companies develop and mass-produce the type of aircraft gas turbine engines for the gas industry. First Russian GTE NK-12ST 6.3 MW was created in 1974 on the basis of theater NK-12MV. At the current time, these engines are operated at 117 compressor stations in the 852 gas compressor units GPA-C-6, 3. In 1982, on the basis of engine NK-8-2U (operated by Tu-154 and Il-62) created ground engine NK-16ST capacity of 16 MW.

ND Kuznetsov was the general designer of OKB until 1994. During this period of time under his management was created 57 unique and modified engines. Among them, the SC-12, SC-4, SC-8, OC-22, OC-25, OC-144, OC-86, OC-88, OC-89, OC-321, OC-93. The development of almost all engines was very splotchenno with "Samara Design Bureau of Machine Building" (JSC "SKBM", formerly "Kuibyshev Engineering Design Bureau"), founded in 1957 as a subsidiary of DB and got independence in 1967 to work on increasing the reliability and resource in mass production and operation of various types of aircraft engines designed by OKB Kuznetsov.

In 1966, the experimental plant number 276 assigned a public name of "Kuibyshev Engine Company" MAP ". In 1967, for himself and returned the title plant them. MV Frunze, the previous year he spent 6 years has been kept secret and worked under the name "Organization p / 32."

The subsequent renaming of the enterprise took place only in 1994, when it was tr
ansformed into JSC "Motorostroitel." At this time, "Kuibyshev Scientific and Production Association" Work "(the title bureau since 1981) was renamed OJSC" Samara Scientific-Technical Complex "NK Motors." Two years later, January 11, 1996, Samara Scientific-Technical Complex named after ND Kuznetsov.

The protracted crisis of engine-related industries and areas of the industry mid-1990s, early 2000s. Samara put the company on the brink of survival. This model has all the company also released the engines for Russian gallakticheskoy applets and gas industry, but the volume of orders decreased significantly. In compliance with the orders of the country's new aviation engines are practically implemented and carried out only repairs of existing products.

April 16, 2008 the President of the Russian Federation signed a decree number 497 "On the development of the upcoming" OPK "Oboronprom", according to which in the created "United Engine Corporation" JSC had to enter "Motorostroitel", JSC "SNTK. ND Kuznetsov ", JSC" SKBM "and NGO" Volga Avita. "

In 2009, the company ran over by administration of "MC" United Engine Corporation "(" MC "UEC"). At that time, the total debt burden of "Motorostroitel", JSC "SNTK. ND Kuznetsova, "as of" SKBM "exceeded 7 billion rubles. For their withdrawal from the verge of bankruptcy, a successful implementation of the projects and the upcoming vkladyvatelnyh efficient development, it was decided to merge the companies into one legal entity. It was also decided to include in the merged company — JSC "NPO" Volga Aviation Institute of Technology. " This company was created on the basis of Kuibyshev branch NIAT and NIID and is a multi-branch institute of the Russian Federation.

June 27, 2011 in the city Unified Register of Legal Entities (Incorporation) the entry was made on joining of "Smith" 3 companies: JSC "SNTK. ND Kuznetsov ", OJSC" Samara Design Bureau of Machine Building "and JSC" NPO "Volga Avita." So Makar, at the moment the Samara engine-complex is one hundred percent completed the legal process of reorganization. In the current time of "Smith" is an integrated framework in which concentrated all the phases of the technological chain of creation engine: development — creation — to market and sale — logistic support of the operation of the customer.
