The Ural Open Joint Stock Company "Uralhydromash" producing hydraulic machinery, power, chemical and oil-extracting equipment (OJSC "Uralhydromash") is located in Sysert, Sverdlovsk region, at a distance of 50 kilometers from Yekaterinburg.

The works was founded in 1732 and consisted of metallurgical and mechanical shops. In 1932 metallurgical shops were temporarily closed down. In 1938 mechanical shops were transferred to the rank of machine-building works and as metallurgical ones formally stopped its existence. Since 1942 the works has begun to manufacture hydraulic turbines of small and average capacity for water power stations under construction. It was renamed to the Ural Works of Hydraulic Machines. About 1650 turbines with total capacity of 1500 MW were produced at the works within the period up to 1967. First pumps of large size were manufactured in 1947.

Currently OJSC "Uralhydromash" is one of the leading enterprises of Ural region industry and the whole machine-building complex of Russia. It specializes on design and manufacture of axial, mixed-flow, centrifugal, submersible pumping units and pumps of special designation for chemical, mining, oil-refining, metallurgical and shipbuilding industries, for water supply canals and pipelines, thermal and nuclear stations, for industrial and municipal water power supply systems, sewerage, melioration, irrigation and other branches; and design and manufacture of hydraulic turbines of small and average capacity. The enterprise has highly skilled research specialists, designers, process engineers and working personnel as well as production and testing equipment and floor areas, which make it possible to design, improve and manufacture products corresponding to customers' requirements.

Unique pumps of OJSC "Uralhydromash operate in all leading branches of Russia and countries of Commonwealth and have high reputation on the world market. Pumps produced by OJSC "Uralhydromash" are reliable and economic, simple in operation and maintenance. They have long guarantee period and by their production-economic indices and designing solutions are not inferior to best foreign specimens.

Taking into account increasing world concern to ecological friendly and environmentally safe power sources, OJSC "Uralhydromash" is promoting its hydraulic turbines of small and average capacity to sales market more actively. Such turbines do not require significant construction and operation costs, still retaining all the advantage of pumps.
