In 2021 (in September) the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Hydraulic Engineering named after B.E. Vedeneev (Saint Petersburg, Russia) celebrated its 100th Anniversary. The century-old path of the institute is marked by the participation of its specialists in the creation of many unique hydraulic engineering objects in the CIS countries - from the first-borns of the GOERLO plan to venerable structures in harsh climatic conditions. Today VNIIG continues to maintain a leading position in the field of scientific support, design, construction and operation of hydraulic and energy facilities. The Anniversary is a great occasion to look back on the path traveled and fulfill the glorious milestones of the glorious industry from the leading scientific centers in the field of hydraulic engineering.
