As part of an annual review of sulphur and sulphuric acid market, Sulphur magazine, an influential English publication, included 7 Russian projects in its global listing of the biggest sulphur recovery projects, with four of these projects - at Afipsky Oil Refinery, Novokuibyshevsk Oil Refinery, TANECO and Ryazan Oil Refining Company - implemented by JSC Giprogazoochistka.

Sulphur Recovery Complex was put into operation at JSC TANECO. The Complex comprises MDEA Regeneration Section, the first line of Sour Water Stripping and Sulphur Recovery Unit, and Sulphur Granulation Unit. The first line has a design capacity of 410 tons per day.

JSC Giprogazoochistka has been awarded the Russian national award as the "Best company based on the quality of products and services provided".

JSC Giprogazoochistka became a finalist for the "HR-Brand 2011" Award and was assigned a rating of A.hr for employer attractiveness.

Working in collaboration with Haldor Topsoe A/S (Denmark), the Company implemented Spent Sulphuric Acid Regeneration Unit project at OJSC Kuibyshev Oil Refinery thus enabling proper operation of the Alkylation Complex.

The Company completed the project of Dry Hydrocarbon Gas Desulphurization Unit and Combined Sulphur Production Unit forming part of the Vacuum Gasoil Hydrocracking Complex at CJSC Ryazan Oil Refining Company.

The Company developed the design of process units as part of a major retrofit programme implemented at oil refineries owned by Oil Company ROSNEFT (Kuibyshev Refinery, Novokuibyshevsk Refinery and Syzran Refinery).

Combined Gas Desulphurization and Sulphuric Acid Production Unit with a capacity of 130 thousand tons/year was put into operation at LUKOIL-Nizhegorodnefteorgsintez LLC. Combined Gas Purification Unit Revamp Project was completed at Moscow Oil Refinery.

Giprogazoochistka Kazakhstan (KazGGO) Joint Venture came into existence.

Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks granted JSC Giprogazoochistka a utility model patent for Tail Gas Incinerator.

The Company implemented its first 3D scanning project, having performed 3D scanning of the "Alekseevskaya" booster compressor station for Oil Company LUKOIL.

Prompted by a boost in production capacities and implementation of a number of large projects in Russia and overseas, the Company opens its representative offices in Ufa, Uzbekistan, Republic of Belarus and Singapore.

A new company, Giprogazoochistka-Engineering, that specializes in electromechanical gas purification emerged within the GGO Group.

The Company made a decision to switch over to the use of AVEVA PDMS, an integrated computer-aided design system.

CJSC DOS was created to perform procurement and supply of industrial materials and equipment and carry out construction of gas treatment, desulphurization, and sulphur production facilities designed by JSC Giprogazoochistka specialists.

The Company expanded its portfolio of activities making it possible to provide a full package of engineering services and implement turnkey construction projects.

JSC Giprogazoochistka received a certificate of compliance with the International Quality Management System ISO 9001:2000. Certification audit was carried out by representatives of TUV Thuringen e.V. (Germany), a leading European certification center.

Design Institute "Proekthimzaschita", formerly, the flagship design institute within the Gosstroy of Russia whose activities focused on anticorrosion protection of engineering structures, facilities and process equipment, became part of JSC Giprogazoochistka, with all of its core activities fully preserved.

JSC Giprogazoochistka went through a certification audit which confirmed compliance of its quality management system with the International Quality Management System ISO 9001:1994.

Giprogazoochistka became part of the multidiscipline holding company Stins Coman.

Following privatization and incorporation, Joint Stock Company Giprogazoochistka became the legal successor of Design Institute Giprogazoochistka.

The Institute installed an electronic computing machine that occupied about 30 sq. m. of floor space.

The Council of Ministers of the USSR entrusted the Institute with the responsibility of coordinating design and research activities in the field of gas purification carried out across the Soviet Union, developing key technical approaches to be used in the design of gas purification facilities, and implementing design and experimental works associated with the introduction of new cutting-edge gas purification technologies and equipment.

As of the first of March the number of employees in Giprogazoochistka amounted to 307 persons.

Over the period from 1939 to 1966, 23 324 document files were amassed in the Institute's archives.

The Institute passes under the authority of the Ministry of Oil Refining and Petrochemical Industry of the USSR.

Giprogazoochistka passes under the control of the State Committee for Chemical and Oil Industry within the State Planning Committee of the USSR (Gosplan).

The Institute operates under the authority of the State Committee for Chemistry within the Council of Ministers of the USSR.

After Glavhimproekt ceased to exist, Giprogazoochistka Institute once again passed under the authority of Gazoochistka Trust Company.

After restructuring of the Design Bureau that was part of Gazoochistka Trust Company, Giprogazoochistka, a state institute for the design of gas treatment facilities, was formed. The Institute was entrusted with a leading role in designing facilities for desulphurization of flue gases produced by electric power plants.

This point in time can be viewed as the year of formation of an organization that today has the competencies of a full cycle engineering company with unique technologies, professional staff and a clear strategic development paradigm.

Adapting to the exigencies of the changing world, Giprogazoochistka changed its affiliation several times: it was successively affiliated with Gazoochistka Trust Company, the Ministry of Chemical Industry and Glavhimproekt within the Ministry of Chemical Industry.

Gazoochistka Trust Company operates a design bureau among its various functional divisions.

Afanasy Petrovich Kozlov was appointed Director of the design bureau that operated within Gazoochistka Trust Company which was later transformed into Giprogazoochistka Institute.

Gazoochistka Trust Company comes into existence.

Electric filters department was created within Chemstroy of the USSR.

The department (to be transformed later into Electric Filters Bureau) was managed by Boris Lvovich Shneerson and Nikolay Nikolayevich Egorov.
