Well drilling and the Water Supply Company "Burvod"


The company «Burvod» was established in 1937, and for the time of its activities changed the patterns of ownership, name and structure, saving the accumulated experience and qualifications.

The archive of drilled wells in Ukraine consists of three parts: Central, Western and Southern archives and is kept from 1937.

1957-1998 Group of Companies «Ukrburvod»

Republican Specialized Group of Companies "Ukrburvod" was established as a structure of the Ministry of Assemble and Special Construction Works of USSR. In the days of Soviet Union, Group of Companies «Ukrburvod» was a leading enterprise, which carried out works, related to drilling of artesian wells for big industrial objects, water supply to cities and settlements, as well as the development and introduction of new methods of drilling.

In order to resolve important problems of water supply, it was necessary to drill wells with maximum productivity. For this purpose the experts of the company introduced the method of "reverse circulation drilling". This method allows to avoid mudding of aquiferous horizon, and as a result to obtain open flow production potential from this horizon. The company also introduced the method of well drilling with under-reaming.

In 1986, after the tragedy on Chernobylska NPS, the company participated in disaster recovery works on NPS.

In addition, the accident resulted in environmental pollution. The provision of the population of Kyiv city and Kyiv oblast with ecologically pure water became a key problem. The resolution of this task was entrusted to Group of Companies “Ukrburvod”.

Among the Customers of the company are local authorities, water and wastewater treatment plants, industrial organizations and other structures that require qualified drilling.

2002-2008 OJSC “Ukrburvod”

thumb_P1050663In 2002 the company changed the form of ownership: the company shares were bought from the State.

Transition of the country to the market relations forced the company to look for its place on the market. The approaches, traditional for the company, ran out of steam. A good well became an  insufficient result for the customers, they were interested in "ready-to-operate water".

That’s why in addition to introduction of a modern system of management, the company decided to develop new directions, which help to expand the range of services, offered by the drilling company, namely: well engineering, assembly of water-lifting equipment, construction of water supply networks etc.

As every direction was developed, it became obvious that subdivisions grew into independent organizations.

As a result, Group of Companies “Burvod” was established, which includes four basic companies.
