The mineral fertilizer producer Acron Group has increased output at its Veliky Novgorod facility’s Ammonia-4 unit to 2500 tpd, 21% above its design capacity, bringing the unit’s capacity to 900 000 tpy. With these changes, total ammonia output at the Veliky Novgorod facility has reached 2.2 million tpy. Investments in the project totalled US$34 million.

The Ammonia-4 unit was upgraded during the first major overhaul, with several departments modified and modern process and compressor equipment commissioned. Repairs were implemented by the company’s own specialists and outside contractors. Critical work was supervised by experts from Haldor Topsoe, Mitsubishi, and Acron Engineering research and development centre.

Chairman of Acron Group’s Board of Directors, Alexander Popov, explained that the Ammonia-4 upgrades are an important part of the group’s investment programme: “This increase in output will help [to] significantly expand nitrogen and complex fertilizer output at Acron’s facility in Veliky Novgorod.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the commissioning ceremony for Ammonia-4 in 2016. Project investments totalled approximately US$500 million.
