The result of integrated cooperation between ALVIGO Group of Companies and leading fertilizer manufacturer in Russia and in the world— PJSC ACRON — is startup of ammonia plant with capacity 2060 t/d “Ammonia 4” in Velikiy Novgorod, Russia.
The implementation of unique project “Ammonia-4” started in 2012, based on partially unfinished ammonia plant АМ-80. Designing/engineering and construction was conducted with maximum possible use of existing equipment and construction structures. Such decision allowed reducing significantly the capital costs. Innovations of ALVIGO GC gave the possibility to implement the parallel approach during plant designing and construction. ALVIGO performed acceptance of separate documentation packages of Basic Design, its adaptation to Russian Norms and Regulations, and in parallel it develops Project Documentation for passing of State Expert Review.
Parallel approach has been implemented also at stage of detail design documentation and constructionа. Simultaneously with elaboration of detail design documentation ALVIGO GC rendered services for PJSC ACRON for ordering and acceptance of documentation for newly purchased equipment. It allowed to perform the supply of documents for construction that gave the possibility to reduce times significantly for construction-erection works. Elaboration of Detail design Documentation began in August 2013. The first package was received in June 2016.
During project implementation all three ALVIGO design institutes have been involved: Khimtekhnologiya Ltd (Severodonetsk), NIAP Ltd (Novomoskovsk) and JSC GIAP (Moscow) that allowed reduce project time largely.
Basic Design for “Ammonia-4” plant was designed by Licensor Company Haldor Topsøe A/S. In scope of Haldor Topsøe A/S services supply of licensed equipment was included also.
PJSC ACRON is one of the largest manufacturers of ammonia, nitrogen and phosphates fertilizer and other types of chemical products in Russia. The completed project, General Contractor of which was JSC Novgorodskiy GIAP, is the most influential investment project of PJSC ACRON for the last some decades.
Ceremonial event for placing into commissioning of “Ammonia-4” plant accomplished in July 29, 2016. In ceremonial launch of “Ammonia-4” plant the President of RF Vladimir Putin participated.
