Stamicarbon has said that a Safurex® high-pressure stripper and pool reactor has been completed on time and arrived in Russia to be installed in JSC Shchekinoazot’s new 2000 tpd urea melt and granulation plant located in Shchekino, Tula Region in Central Russia.

“These high-pressure vessels are the centerpieces of the plant under construction and their on-time delivery is critical for the project execution timeline,” said Arnoud van Deursen, Project Manager at Stamicarbon.

Meanwhile the project’s granulator has also arrived at the site. The last major piece of equipment for the project, the MicroMist™ Venturi Scrubber, has also been completed and is awaiting shipment.

With a planned capacity of 2000 tpd, the urea melt plant will be based on Stamicarbon’s Pool Reactor Design and Flash Design, which simplify synthesis loop operation, lower investment costs and reduce steam consumption.

The granulation plant will be based on Stamicarbon’s Optimized Granulation Design, with a proprietary granulator at the core.

The plant will also use the MicroMist Venturi Scrubber technology, which helps to reduce CO2 emissions significantly. The scrubber will also help Shchekinoazot to reduce ammonia and urea emissions.
