Acron Group has announced that its consolidated output, including operating results for Acron, Dorogobuzh and North-Western Phosphorus Co., was up 7% in 2020.
Alexander Popov, Chairman of Acron’s Board of Directors, commented on the results: “Despite the pandemic, Acron Group set a new record in 2020, ramping up its commercial output 7% to almost 8 million t, which is fully in line with the plan we presented a year ago. This was made possible by government action in the majority of countries to ensure uninterrupted supply of mineral fertilizers to farmers, as well as by the responsible and coordinated coronavirus response mounted by the group’s employees.
“In 2020, Acron Group also successfully completed three investment projects: the construction of a new 135 000 tpy nitric acid unit, the construction of a 700 000 tpy urea granulation unit, and upgrades to the Ammonia-4 unit, bringing its capacity to 900 000 tpy. The Urea-6+ project, which is currently underway and scheduled for completion in 2Q21, will increase the unit’s capacity by 520 000 tpy. We are confident that Acron Group’s output will continue to grow. Our plan is to produce 8.4 million t of commercial products in 2021’.
