Vologda’s Governor took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony of a new ammonia production line at PhosAgro-Cherepovets.
Construction of a new ammonia production line at PhosAgro-Cherepovets is a key part of PhosAgro's long-term modernisation and growth strategy.
The commissioning of the new ammonia plant at PhosAgro-Cherepovets is planned for the first half of 2017. The new facility will be the highest-capacity of any ammonia lines currently functioning or under construction in Russia. With the launch of the new ammonia plant, PhosAgro's total ammonia production capacity will increase by nearly 70% and will make up 2200 tons a year.
The new ammonia production facility will rank among the best in the world in terms of characteristics like raw materials and energy consumption, labour productivity, up-time between repairs, as well as environmental impact. Natural gas consumption per unit if production is expected to be 20% lower than the current average for ammonia production facilities in Russia.
PhosAgro signed a contract with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries-LedInternational Consortium for construction of new energy efficient ammonia production facility in the Vologda Region during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, with the Russian Federation Minister for Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, the Governor of the Vologda Oblast Oleg Kuvshinnikov, and PhosAgro Deputy Chairman of the Board and Vice President of the Russian Union of Chemists Andrey Guryev in attendance.
Total investments in the new ammonia facility and related infrastructure, which PhosAgro plans to finance from its own cash flows and with third-party funding, are expected to be RUB 25 billion.
