Shchekinoazot chooses Topsoe ammonia technology for new plant
United chemical company Shchekinoazot has selected Haldor Topsoe as licensor of ammonia technology for the construction of a new ammonia and urea plant.
Located in the Tula region of Russia, the plant will have a capacity of 1500 t of ammonia per day and 2000 t of urea/day.
“This project will ensure the qualitative development of the gas industry in Russia towards a continuous increase in the feedstock processing rate and will allow switching from the consumption and export of raw materials to the production of high-tech, advanced processing products,” said Anatoly Surba, general director of JSC Shchekinoazot.
“We are very pleased to continue our long-term cooperation with Shchekinoazot. They have always set ambitious goals and strived for technology leadership, effective use of resources, and maximum productivity. We share Shchekinoazot’s approach to sustainable development and environment, which helps us work effectively together on our fifth joint project,” says Peter Vang Christensen, managing director of Haldor Topsoe’s Moscow office.
