About the Tutkovsky PJSC

Within the TUTKOVSKY International Hub of Natural Resources, Tutkovsky PJSC bears responsibility for the implementation of agreements on the provision of production and supply services concerning materials and equipment for projects on the study and rational use and management of natural resources.

Performing obligations of a general contractor, the company, applying the opportunities of the Hub partners, organizes marketing and sales, takes part in tenders of the customers and signs contracts for all necessary product range; based on transparent internal competition in the hub, it attracts subcontractors, coordinates and supervises their work.

Development highlights:

1945 – 1950

In May 1945, the order of the people’s commissar of oil industry of the USSR established the Ukrainian branch of the Geophysics plant.

The company was formed, the first geophysical instruments and equipment were prepared and released.

1951 – 1970

In February 1951, the branch became independent and was called Kyiv instrumentation plant. The plant became the main production base of geophysical instrumentation of the former Soviet Union.

1970 – 1980

Kiev Geofizprylad plant produced over 80% downhole equipment used by geophysical enterprises of the Soviet Union within the search and exploration of oil and gas.

Reconstruction and re-equipment of the plant in 1976 increased production capacity, introduced new technology and manufacturing processes.

In total, during the period of operation, the plant ensured development and establishment of mass production of more than 200 types of downhole geophysical instruments and equipment for wide application. In particular, devices of the plant were used for research at high pressures and temperatures of the Kola Superdeep Borehole.


After privatization, the plant operated in the structure of CJSC Nadra, from 1999 – Nadra Group.


The design office for the development and implementation of new geophysical instruments was established.


The first stage of a complex technological upgrading of the enterprise was completed. Construction of new techniques and development of production technology were carried in compliance with international standards. Hardware and software systems for 3D modelling and process design, such as CAD Creo Parametric, were mastered and implemented in production. Development of electronics was performed using the electronic devices design package – Altinum Designer. Digital geophysical instruments were developed and manufactured.


Modernization of metal-working machinery was completed. The enterprise was equipped with modern HAAS machinery with numerical control.

2009 – 2015

Modular digital geophysical instruments, NN Series, were developed and introduced to production. Mass production of the devices of own design were started. The agreement with the Warrior (Scientific Data Systems Inc., USA) on cooperation and technological support was concluded.

Nowadays, the company has a full cycle of development and production of geophysical equipment and machinery, primarily borehole equipment for all kinds of research at the operating temperature up to + 200°C and pressure up to 150 MPa.

To perform its function in the Hub, the company uses the legacy of CJSC Nadra concerning experience in the corporation of Ukrzarubizhnaftohaz on delivery of products of tens of Ukrainian companies to foreign markets, the ability to consolidate the efforts of groups of companies for the implementation of large projects.
