Ivchenko Progress

Zaporozhye Machine-Building Design Bureau Progress State Enterprise named after Academician A.G. Ivchenko contributed much to the development of aviation industry. This is the Company, which for over 65 years has been involved in design of engines to power aircraft and helicopters of various types, and also drivers and special equipment of industrial application. For this period of time more than 80000 aviation piston and gas turbine engines, turbine starters and drivers of industrial application have been produced by engine manufacturers. The aero engines designed by SE Ivchenko-Progress power 54 types of A/C in 122 countries of the world. Total operating time of GTEs exceeds 300 million hours. The company is a part of the Ministry of Industrial Policy of Ukraine.
On May 5, 1945, under the People’s Commissar of Aviation Industry A. I. Shakhurin’s order No. 193 an experimental design bureau (OKБ) was established at OKБ-478 plant to design new and update aero engines of medium and low powers designed earlier for civil aviation. A regular designer Alexander Georgiyevich Ivchenko was appointed to be a Chief of the OKБ (Experimental Design Bureau) who later on (in 1963) became a Designer General of the Enterprise. The backbone of the new design bureau comprised the experienced specialists of the engine-manufacturing plant, which had passed a splendid school of design and development of aero engines ranged from М-11 to М-88B and Ash-82FN. In 1966 the enterprise was renamed to Progress Zaporozhye Machine-Building Design Bureau (ZMDB). Since 1994 the enterprise was named after Academician A.G. Ivchenko, and since 2004 - SE Ivchenko-Progress
The sphere of SE IVCHENKO-PROGRESS activities covers design, manufacture, test, development, certification, putting into series production and overhaul of gas turbine engines both of aviation and industrial application. More than 60 certificates of Bureau Veritas, EASA, Central Civil Aviation Administration of China, IAC AR and GosAviaSluzhba of Ukraine confirm a type design conformity, quality, reliability and the right to design, manufacture, overhaul and upgrade the engines.
Now, a family of AI-222 turbofan engines with a thrust ranging from 2200 to 4500 kgf (afterburning version) designed for powering modern combat training airplanes is under development. In 2009 the program was completed and the Report on the joint state flight tests of Russian Yak-130 combat trainer powered by AI-222-25 engines rated at 2500 kgf was signed.
SE IVCHENKO-PROGRESS carries out a common technical and marketing policy together with the Ukrainian and Russian manufacturers of gas turbine equipment. At present, the company has over 500 business partners, among which the majority are aviation enterprises of Russian Federation and Ukraine.
The gas turbine engines manufactured according to the SE IVCHENKO-PROGRESS documentation are successfully operated by numerous airlines in the world. The company maintains close interrelations with many of them, while offering services on overhauling the engines and ensuring the engine operation on technical condition. The company has a reputation of a serious and reliable partner among such airlines as Volga-Dnieper, Antonov Airlines, Anymex, Polyot and plus nearly 50 operators of the world.
Today, the company looks with confidence in the future, it has everything to be one of the world’s leaders in the development of modern, reliable, ecologically friendly engines. This is ensured by its own designing school, its team of highly skilled specialists, splendid resource base, and, certainly, its honest, mutually beneficial relations with partners and users.
