Historical background


September, 1926 – establishment of the company.

All-Ukrainian branch of Joint Stock Company “Teplo and sila” (Heat and power) was established as well as Kyiv design and installation enterprise “Kotloturbina” was created.

During this time period development of the company occurred. Conducting of large-scale construction of CHP and TPP of industrial enterprises of Kyiv, Odessa, Mykolaiiv, Kryvyi Rih, Kherson, Mariupol and other cities of Ukraine, south of the Russian Federation as well as Moldova (which at that time were integral parts of the USSR).
Energy sources which were being built had capacity of boilers only 10-20 t of steam per hour and turbine 2-5 MW.


July, 1941 – due to war the enterprise was evacuated to Chelyabinsk. It managed in a very short time to construct for defense plants industry steam-air-thermal power plants with boilers up to 200t of steam per hour and turbines up to 100 MW.

At that time installation of equipment at the most important objects of Ural was carried out, namely: CHP of Chelyabinsk, Kamensk-Uralsky, Ufa and Magnitogorsk iron & steel works; CHP of Ufa cracking distillation plant; CHP of Chelyabinsk tractor (tank) plant, CHP of Kostanay rayon factory; CHP of Chkalov plant «Krasnyi maiak» and actually Chelyabinsk CHP.


April 1944 – after return of the enterprise to Kyiv, KyivPromEnergoMontazh State Union Construction & Installation Trust was created on its basis. Post-war reconstruction of destroyed electricity-producing industry commenced. This period is characterized by construction of CHP and TPP for Ukrainian cities as wells as restoration of power plants of Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and southern regions of the Russian Federation which were hit by the war.

At that time the company started to be involved into the biggest energy projects. Mastering of above-critical parameters. Construction of power plants with boilers with capacity up to 640 t of steam per hour and turbines up to 150 MW. Specifically at this time in April 1958 the enterprise got its name which it is called today – "PIVDENTEPLOENERGOMONTAZH".

Construction of new CHP and TPP: Kyiv SDPP-2; Kyiv CHP-3; Kyiv CHP-4, Odessa CHP, Mykolaiiv CHP, Cherkasy CHP; Chernihiv CHP; Argayash CHP (Russian Federation); Dobrotvir TPP, Simferopol TPP and Sevastopol TPP;


Period of taking the lead of energy construction.
Construction of TPP with boilers up to 1650 t of steam per hour and turbines up to 800 MW that far outweighs capacity of earlier objects. Construction of nuclear power plants commences.

During these years the company assembled equipment and put into operation thermal power plants in Ukraine:  Dobrotvir TPP, Burshtyn TPP, Ladyzhyn TPP, Prydniprovska TPP, Kryvyi Rih TPP, Trypilska TPP, Zaporizhia TPP, Odessa TPP, Kalush TPP, Chernihiv TPP, Kyiv CHP-4, Kyiv CHP-5, Kyiv CHP-6. The following objects were constructed in union republics: Moldova SDPP (Moldova), Beriozovskaya SDPP (Belarus), Minsk CHP (Belarus), Polotsk CHP (Belarus), CHP in Argayash (Russian Federation), CHP in Chișinău (Moldova) and CHP in Bălți (Moldova), CHP in Yerevan and Vanadzor (Armenia).
Assembled equipment and put into operation Chornobyl NPP - 4000 MW; Zaporizhia NPP - 6000 MW; Rivne NPP - 2880 MW; Armenian NPP - 440 MW.
Specialists of the company took part in installation of equipment abroad: Greece (Keratsini, Cardia, Amindion, Agios Dimitrios CHPPs), Bulgaria (Maritsa-East TPP, Kozloduy NPP), the Czech Republic (Temelin NPP), Slovakia (Bohunice, Mochovce NPPs), Hungary (Paks NPP), Mongolia, Cuba (Juragua NPP), Germany (Greifswald NPP, Boxberg TPP), Iran (Ahwaz (Ramin), Isfahan TPPs, Bushehr NPP), Romania, India, Iraq (Basrah, Najibiyah TPP), etc.
In 1976 for significant achievements in the development of energy sector of the Soviet Union the personnel of company was awarded with the Order of Red Banner of Labor.


New period of the company history is indissolubly tied to development of independent Ukraine, projects in energetics and industry under new market conditions.

Company develops new services to better satisfy Clients’ needs:

  • services of ЕРС-contractor;

  • engineering services;

  • services for training, performance qualification and certification of personnel;

Also UTEM builds of new factories for production of non-standard equipment, spools, prices and elements of piping, construction metal structures.

At this time the company actively implements turn-key projects for introduction of new energy-saving technologies, construction of cogeneration power plants, construction of alternative fuel power sources and power plants as well as modern industrial enterprises meeting not only Ukrainian standards, but also European requirements for safety and environmental protection.

Enterprises of the company make significant contribution into further construction and life extension of nuclear power plant units, which exceeded their life cycle, and into realization of projects for rectification of the consequences of accident and decommissioning of Chornobyl NPP.

Some large projects implemented during this time:

  • further construction and commissioning of power unit No.4 at Rivne NPP;
  • construction of spent nuclear fuel storage and plant for reprocessing of liquid radioactive waste at Chornobyl NPP;
  • construction of facilities for reprocessing of solid radioactive waste for Rivne and Chornobyl NPP;
  • design of storage facility for highly radioactive waste (HRW), which is returned  after reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel from the Russian Federation;
  • development of technology and execution of works for replacement of turbine condensers at power units of NPPs;
  • development and implementation of technology for handling of spent nuclear fuel using equipment by Holtec International at Rivne, Khmelnytsk and South-Ukraine NPPs;
  • replacement of steam-generating units at power units No.1 and 2 of South Ukraine NPP;
  • installation and commissioning of the first in Ukraine boiler with circulating fluidized bed steam capacity 670 t of steam per hour at power unit №4 Starobesheve TPP;
  • construction of blast furnace production complex №5 of Yenakievo Metallurgical Plant;
  • construction of air separation plant of Air Liquide;
  • construction of the largest in Europe coal preparation plant at Krasnoarmeyskaya-Zapadnaya No.1;
  • construction of cogeneration power plants at SJSC "TITAN", LLC "LUKOIL Energia i Gaz Ukraina", Plant of "Coca-Cola Beverages Ukraine", PJSC "Kiev Cardboard and Paper Mill", PJSC "Crimea TITAN", PJSC "Crimean Soda Plant";
  • design of straw-operated biofuel power plant capacity 46 MW for Danish company BWSC;
  • construction of woodchip-operated biofuel power plant, capacity 18 MW for “Biogasenergy” LLC.

Also company produces modern energy-saving straw-operated heat generators, capacity from 150 up to 860 KW, which are run by more than 150 farmsteads of Ukraine and the European Union.

Over the year of its activities Public Joint Stock Company "PIVDENTEPLOENERGOMONTAZH" commissioned more than 37 million kW of energy generating capacities including those in Ukraine 32 million kW which makes up 57 percent of established capacity of the country’s energy system. Staff of the company on repeated occasions was awarded with government awards. In view of rich history the Company remains one of the leading enterprises of the industry continuously developing and making its contribution into the country prosperity.
