JSC "Power machines" enterprises – Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod (LMZ) and Electrosila Plant – take part in the All-Russian Career Guidance Campaign "Week Without Turnstiles". The campaign is held under the auspices of the Union of Machine Builders of Russia.
During the period between April 10 to 17, "Power machines" enterprises will serve as excursion sites for over 500 students. This time not only students from specialised educational institutions but also schoolchildren will visit the plants.

The "Power machines" sites will be visited by students from more than a dozen institutions: St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg Mining University, University under the Interparliamentary Assembly of EurAsEc, Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, College of Power Engineering and Metalworking of Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI", Technical College, Maloohtinskiy College, College of Aerospace Instrumentation of St. Petersburg State University and the university itself, Bonch-Bruevich Saint Petersburg State University of Telecommunications, Electromechanical College, N.I. Putilov Industrial-Technological College, Izhorskiy College, St. Petersburg State Marine Technical University, St. Petersburg State University of Industrial Technologies and Design.

During the "Week Without Turnstiles", schoolchildren and students will have the opportunity to visit the main production shops of LMZ, a historical enterprise with a rich history of over 150 years. They will also visit Turboatomgaz and witness the production of turbine blades. Electrosila, the largest manufacturer of generators for turbines in the country, which celebrates its 125th anniversary on 16 April, is also waiting for the students to visit. Participants will have the opportunity to talk to representatives of the production and observe the work that they may consider for future employment opportunities. The students will also visit the museums of both Electrosila and LMZ, where they can learn about the rich history of these plants.

The "Week Without Turnstiles" campaign is aimed at increasing the interest of young people in technical professions, forming an early career guidance system, increasing the personnel potential of the machine-building industry. The main idea of the project is to introduce schoolchildren and students to the operations of local enterprises, particularly those in the mechanical engineering and high-tech industries.
