Acron and Haldor Topsoe complete ammonia unit revamp

Published by
World Fertilizer,

Acron Group and Haldor Topsoe have completed an ammonia unit revamp project at Acron's Ammonia-4 plant and successfully passed guarantee test runs to confirm the capacity of 2500 tpd of ammonia.

The Ammonia-4 plant is one of the largest ammonia units in Europe, located in Novgorod, Russia. The plant was commissioned in 2016, with total investment reaching US$500 million.

Topsoe specialists developed a project that involved another heat exchange reformer (HTER), changes to the CO2 removal section, and other modifications.

Despite the obstacles and travel restrictions seen in 2020, after a successful overhaul in November 2020  the plant reached the capacity of over 2500 tpd.

”Haldor Topsoe and Acron have been in a successful partnership for quite a while and the revamp project, that delivered in November 2020, marked another milestone in our cooperation. We believe our companies’ partnership will develop further for the benefit of both companies,” said Peter Vang Christensen, Managing Director of Haldor Topsoe’s Moscow office.

Aleksandr Popov, Chairman of the board of Acron, said: “Boosting the Ammonia-4 plant is an important project of Acron Group’s investment programme. Increasing its capacity will allow to sufficiently increase production of nitrogenous and compound fertilizers on our Novgorod site.”
